Daily Kos: Implosion at the Vatican - One Can Only Hope

Two Vatican experts have used the word "implosion" to describe the current state of affairs at the Holy See: Robert Mickens, Vatican correspondent for The Tablet published in Britain, and Massimo Franco, a veteran political writer for Corriere della Sera, Italy's most prestigious daily newspaper, who said there are "conflicts within the Vatican `worthy of the epoch of the Borgias'.... There's a palpable sense of fin du régime in the Roman air, he says."

For the sake of their sexually-tortured victims; women and gays; all those past, present and future who will suffer hardship and shortened life spans from the alliance of Church and plutocracy; the poor, the sick and marginalized; we can only hope it comes sooner than later.

The following is an outline of the tensions and turmoil leading to these experts' prediction.
