It's not my place to say but I don't think the Catholic Church is implicitly or explicitly against any translation of the Bible that was done in good faith, as it were. The church uses certain...

I don't think you're really making your point well. I mean, by that token, why should NPR or any news organization in the US do a story about Hanukkah or Kwanza when "most people" don't celebrate...

That's a funny story EQ. How much funnier it would have been if it read "don't destroy his beliefs in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, or horoscopes too soon". :D
