The Vatican Says Yes 

The Vatican has "stunned opponents of genetically modified foods" by declaring that GM-crops hold the answer to world starvation and malnutrition. An article in The Times today (only available to subscribers, unfortunately) says a forthcoming Vatican study will argue that the future of humanity is at stake and that there is no room for the argument advanced by environmentalists that "nature is good and man is bad."

This could mean a lot for the debate in EU-countries like Germany and France, where anti-GM green sentiments have prevailed so far.
