Let's think how manay times should apologize human mind for his wicked ideas - racism, communism, national socialism, abortion, euthanasia.
Since 1945, in USA alone more people were killed by abortion than Adolf Hitler killed in deaths camps.
Let's not forget that we talk about institution that exists for 2000 years and is made of both divine and human (failing) elements. It's institutions which created one of the highest civilizations ever existed - latin culture.
