Another example of anti-Catholic myths likely to be spread in public schools is "poor persecuted Galileo". Students may end up being taught that Galileo was a brave and brilliant man who resisted against the superstitious tyranny of the Catholic Church.
As most of us know, Galileo was unable to get enough science evidence to back up his theory, so he tried using his connections in the Church to get support for it on theological grounds. The Church authorities, however, did not cooperate with his attempt to manipulate them. They also rightly punished him for making personal interpretations of Scripture, though quite mildly considering the seriousness of the offense.
