Galileo and Copernicus were hounded for their ideas contrary to the establishment of the day.

But not by scientists of their day (of whom there were pitifully few). Those who decried Galileo and Copernicus were churchmen who were afraid of what their findings would mean for the Biblically-based order they'd established.
