It looks like IDers have a huge uphill battle. The head Vatican Astronomer just slammed ID as "not science". I don't think the pope's statements are completely in sync with his astronomer (a Jesuit - read liberal), so the conflict is even within the Church. I see ID as a call for honesty in the teaching of evolution and not as stifling the science of evolution. Oh well, it took the Church several hundred years to forgive Galileo - I expect we'll take nearly as long to figure this out!
