Vatican newspaper: No Church position on genetically-modified potato
March 05, 2010
Following the European Commission’s approval of a genetically-modified potato for industrial purposes, the Vatican newspaper has explained that the Church has taken no position on the issue of genetically-modified produce.
“There has been talk of an explicit 'yes' to the use of genetically modified organisms in agriculture, confusing once again personal commentaries of ecclesiastics with 'official' statements attributed to the Holy See or the Church,” L’Osservatore Romano noted.
