Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Who knows? More to the point: Who cares?

The gullible will remain faithful, the rest will walk away and by generation be less tolerant of medieval men in Gucci frocks telling them how to live their lives. By the time the conservatives, walled away in the Vatican, notice that there really is a problem, it will be far too late.

Too fond of the power to command governments, the inevitable corruptions have led to the loss of western europe & N America. Eastern Europe, Africa nad S America remain obedient, but for how long?

Well, this is mostly an Irish issue, but if there was ever a proof that the stranglehold the RCC used to have over Ireland is decidedly loosening, this visit was definitely it.

In  my world, "RCC" are the initials of the Rape Crisis Centre in Dublin, which led to some confusion for a moment.

Death by acronyms... sorry about that.
Then again, I wasn't that far off topic.
