The article plainly states that the parchment was reused because parchments were hard to come by and archimedes' work wasn't in demand. It's the simple issue of supply and demand and a monk that made a rather careless mistake, not some evil church cabal trying to quash all knowledge.

Christians, as stupid as they are sometimes, don't have anything against mathematics anyways.

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
