The Cardinal stated ""To assert that the earth revolves around the sun
is as erroneous as to claim that Jesus was not born of a virgin."

Well, if you concur with the following two statements (as I presume you do):

(1) The earth revolves around the sun.

(2) Jesus was not born of a virgin.

It follows that statement (1) is precisely as erroneous as statement
(2) - i.e. not at all. So he was perfectly correct in his assertion!
I wonder if he was hedging his bets?
