You bet it would surprise me... Tom is under the impression that the Catholic Church is based on scientific rationality, but it is based on the belief that their poster boy didn't have a human father and his mother never did the dirty.
Since that is the foundation I say give some scientific basis for the virgin birth, or accept that Christianity (including RCC) is based on a belief in magic and superstition.
