A good reading of Revelations will tell you that Chistendom (ie primarily the Vatican) will fall. Given the rising tide against not only fundamentalism the world over, but just the general distaste for religion and politics mixing and being highly influential in almost all of the world's current conflicts, it's not hard to draw a line there. But it's far more *exciting* when you're stark raving nuts to talk about it.
