I don't buy it:
When the neoconservatives installed Karol Wojtyla as Pope John Paul II, the US was the richest country in the world. The goal was to use the Catholic hierarchy to lead the Religious Right in securing Republican victories and, like a giant vacuum cleaner, the plutocrats would suck the wealth of the US into their own pockets.

At the time, John Paul II had little interest in the EU, "disliking the free hand it seems to give member states on abortion, euthanasia or meddling with human genetics, and what he judges to be its materialist foundations."  

But now, the EU is largest economy in the world. "States hand over sovereignty to markets...the market always dominates policy...and bankers took over Europe."

The plutocrats possibly set up the "eurocentric" Joseph Ratzinger as Wojtyla's successor to emulate their success in the US with financial hegemony in Europe. The Church could again use abortion and same-sex marriage to "sanctify" pro-business factions.

Yeah, right. And this all proves that the Rapture is afoot.
