Great quote from Guy Consolmagno

From http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2010/sep/17/pope-astronomer-baptise-aliens?CMP=twt_gu :

Speaking ahead of a talk at the British Science Festival in Birmingham tomorrow, [Vatican astronomer Guy Consolmagno] said that the traditional definition of a soul was to have intelligence, free will, freedom to love and freedom to make decisions. "Any entity – no matter how many tentacles it has – has a soul." Would he baptise an alien? "Only if they asked."
