Church of England intends to apologize to Darwin

I don't how good a source Truemors is. They say an unneeded apology is in the works. Some of his descendants think it's ridiculous. Truemors
In a move modeled after the Vatican’s apology to Galileo, the Church of England will apologize to the author of the theory of evolution on its website marking the scientist’s 200th birthday: ‘Charles Darwin, 200 years from your birth [in 1809], the Church of England owes you an apology for misunderstanding you and, by getting our first reaction wrong, encouraging others to misunderstand you still.” Although the action has been ridiculed by many, including his great-great-grandson, the Church is hoping to distance itself from fundamentalist organizations that continue to argue against the theory. One descendent more in favor of the move explains that he believes “…this apology would have pleased him,” in light of Darwin’s fear of offending as well as his wife’s own Christian devotion. Thanks. Really. Wanna send a memo to this side of the pond?
It is very easy to prove that Darwin was a racist. The full title of Origin of Species is: The Origin of Species by means of Natural Selection or The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life
