You are missing the point here.

Come back after you've studied physics and spacetime.

And Galileo was wrong. Kepler was more right. Galileo stuck to ancient works foolishly and disregarded observation and science.

You can't reduce the entire affair to the fact that Galileo wasn't entirely right.

The fact is, some overly fundamentalist clerics heavily influenced by early Protestants condemned heliocentrism and were absolutely wrong in doing so. It should be a lesson to us. The only time in the history of the Catholic Church that such a group condemns a natural theory, they're wrong. We ought to stick to bold claims in matters of faith and morals.
