    Church makes ‘ludicrous’ apology to Charles Darwin - 126 years after his death | Mail Online

    Funny...but these two sections pretty much sum it all up.

    "Former Conservative Minister Ann Widdecombe, who left the Church of England to become a Roman Catholic, said: ‘It’s absolutely ludicrous. Why don’t we have the Italians apologising for Pontius Pilate? ‘We’ve already apologised for slavery and for the Crusades. When is it all going to stop? It’s insane and makes the Church of England look ridiculous.’
    Andrew Darwin, a great-great grandson of the eminent scientist, said he was ‘bemused’ by the apology, which seemed ‘pointless’.
    ‘Why bother?’ he said. ‘When an apology is made after 200 years, it’s not so much to right a wrong, but to make the person or organisation making the apology feel better.’"

    I agree. Nobody cared or wanted it on either side.

    What a useless gesture, no matter what side you're on.

    True

    What is the point of an apology approximately two centuries after all the principals have passed away?

    The people involved certainly didn't apologize.

    A lot of jokers like Jesse Jackson believe we should be paying reparation for slavery. Just another one of his something for nothing scams.

    I think that every slave owner should pay every slave a million$. How many slaves and slave owners are left? Idiots let the past be just that yes we should study it but leave it there.. Ill stop before I get started.....................

    My ancestors were Vikings. I'll be damned if I'm paying reparations for all the Redheaded Irishmen in the world.

    Apologize?! I married one of those (yes, she can actually trace her ancestry to Vikings on one side).

    I have a feeling that Darwin doesn't really care about an apology. Seeing as how he's been dead for awhile..... :hitwithrock::34:
