    •  Well if people continue to laud (0+ / 0-)

      this new Pope without any hard evidence of "change", and the media continues to celebrate him without doing any background 'what's really going on' reporting, this massive Vatican PR campaign may change your optimism on the RCC's decline.

      •  You're Kidding, Right? (0+ / 0-)

        mainstream propaganda doesn't mean shit to me.

        it's irrelevant what I THINK of the church, compared to entire nations like Ireland. there it's OVER. they are finished with the church's rigid, uselessly dogmatic, anti gay, anti women's rights bullshit.
