    Of course! While Hitler and his crowd were only guilty of starting a war in which more that 35 million were sent to their maker, and the direct genocide of about 6 million on their own, Galileo was guilty of the most heinous crime against the Church: rational thought. I’m only surprised that he was absolved at all.
