Just took a quick peek at the thread referred to by QVD, and John Lane's initial response contains this nugget, which, at first glance, seems reasonable to me:
"One can see, in the light of these observations, the great disservice to truth and to the credibility of the Church which is done by those who go to extremes in their comments and interpretations of this matter. Those who insist that the Church defined the matter when she condemned Galileo create an impossible conundrum, and likewise those who blithely accept that the common interpretation of the Fathers can be tossed aside create a crisis of confidence in the Church and in the truth of Holy Writ. And I think equally problematical are the extreme commentaries which find at the bottom of all modern ills the Heliocentric theory. These commentaries essentially argue that the faith has been destroyed by a theory about which the Church remains silent. That notion is inadmissible, obviously."
