Oh, it’s already well underway. I saw an AP story, authored by one Rachel Zoll, which recounted Pope Benedict’s outraging Muslims (How hard is that, really?) and pointing out that condoms fail to stop the spread of AIDS as, get this, “gaffes”. We’re already reading ridiculous speculation on the nationality and/or color of Benedict’s successor, as if the Church were running some kind of American Apartheid – er, affirmative action program.
Tune it out, folks. I expect the College of Cardinals to do the same.
