Back to the days of the Borgias and Medicis?

Reports are circulating from within the College of Cardinals that Pope Benedict XVI may in effect have been ousted in a palace coup by a radical clique wanting to change the direction of Catholicism.

There have been rumblings to that effect before. If true, it would explain a great deal.

Interesting that Pope St. John Paul II was thought to have secured the College of Cardinals- and thus, the Catholic church- for the traditionalists for a generation. Not so, apparently.
