Then why bring up the prophecies at all, as if they had merit? If you don't believe in them, then it served no purpose to speak about them.
Even if Benedict dies right after he leaves the Papacy, what does that have to do with any 'conspiracy'? It's also no deep, dark secret that the Catholic Church has many things in their past that don't exactly adhere to the preachings of Christ. The Church has had a long history of corruption and hypocrisy. I was born, christened, baptised, and raised Catholic. I don't approve of many of the things the Church does, but that doesn't mean any other sect is any better. Every
religious sect has its secrets and bloody history. Catholicism has no monopoly on sin, hatred, greed and murder.
