    According to the Irish priest Pope Benny was the penultimate pope. The next pope will preside over the end of the world.

    The prophecies of the Irish saint Malachy, the 12th century bishop of Armagh who predicted all the popes, have thrilled and dismayed readers for centuries. He has stated there will be only one more pope after the current one, and during his reign comes the end of the world.

    "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End."

    In 1139, then-Archbishop Malachy went to Rome from Ireland to give an account of his affairs. While there, he received a strange vision about the future that included the name of every pope, 112 in all from his time, who would rule until the end of time. We are now at the second last prophecy.

    Of course to make the prophecy work they've had to come up with some very creative ways to account for anti-popes or come up with things like, "He once ate an olive while visiting the church at Oliviar so he's the Olive Pope!" But there are Catholics and others who believe that when this list runs out that's it -- game over.

    You can't assassinate the character of any of modern conservative. You'd have to find where it was buried, dig it up, resurrect it, then kill it. And killing a zombie isn't really assassination, is it?
