So this happened, just in case you still think you live in the same world you were born into. The Vatican seems to have had some involvement with this, what exactly I haven't been yet able to parse. Does it really matter anymore?
That said, it ties in nicely with the new line of t-shirts and bumper stickers I'm working on, provisionally titled "Make Jack Chick Comics Fictional Again." I was considering, "Make The Two Babylons Fictional Again" but I thought the reference might escape some folks.
