Anyone have a clue what types of nasty things our headed our way if the Pope dies? I've heard a lot of rumors of predictions regarding what happens after his death, but haven't actually heard any of them. Anyone know of any?
This is the place. Don't worry about the pope's death; he is the earthly CEO of one of the oldest corporations on the planet. The Vatican will witness a smooth transition from pope to pope as always. Many cardinals have been managing things for quite some time I am sure.
For the past 2000 years or so, Roman Catholics have feared the passing of a powerful and aged pope. These are the people who start the rumors. My mom is one of them.
TTF will be more disrupted by the next time traveller than the business of the Vatican will be disrupted by the passing of John Paul II.
