According to The Times Online the Vatican says little green men are part of Creation

The Vatican's chief astronomer has said that belief in aliens is not at variance with Christianity and that any extra terrestrials would form "part of God's Creation".
Father Jose Gabriel Funes, a Jesuit, yesterday told L'Osservatore Romano, the Vatican newspaper, that "It is possible to believe in God and in extra-terrestrials". He said Christians could "admit the existence of other worlds and other forms of life, even those more evolved than ours, without necessarily questioning faith in the Creation, the incarnation and the redemption of mankind".
Father Funes, head of the Vatican Observatory, or Specola, said although many astronomers "lost no opportunity" publicly to profess their atheism, it was "a myth that astronomy favours an atheistic vision of the world". He said astronomy "does not favour the view of a Godless world. In fact, I think it is those who work at the Specola who bear witness to the fact that it is possible to believe in God and work with science in a serious way".
I wonder if little green men (sorry little green beings - relatively speaking ) exert censorship on their fellow beings. Perhaps they censor uncovered antennas and a central authority monitors broadcasts from those antenna. Perhaps Senator Conroy will be recruited by the Vatican when alien life forms bring their goo to Earth.
