Of God and Hobbits

I'm surprised this was even an issue. Religions didn't seem to have any problem with the idea of multiple species of mankind when the practice of dividing Homo sapiens into separate species was used to justify slavery. In Contact, Carl Sagan even had a priest upset over the discovery of extraterrestrial life. In reality, the Vatican would clap and launch rocket-propelled collection plates.
