I submit: The Catholic Church is clearly self-destructing. It may not be in my lifetime or yours, but the time is coming when the power of Rome ebbs. The swift exchange of information and ideas over the Internet is leading some to reject religion for faith in their personal interpretations of the divine, and others to completely turn away from all things supernatural. While proponents of freethought and secular humanism see this as good news, the vacuum this monolith will leave behind when the populace turns away from it will still be a problem. As long as there are people who cannot readily tap into the ocean of information and ideas available by way of technology, there will always be those who would exploit ignorance.
