This is not per-se a change in subject. As is evident from the sentiment I express in these pages, I am no fan of the vatican as, indeed, I am no fan of any organization that claims divine or sovereign right to do anything particularly if said action results from opaque machinations that take place behind closed doors.
Bets are on. Which will be dismantled first? A presumed Western democracy or the Vatican?
The question is of course rhetorical because it has already happened. It’s just the most people have not realized it yet.
