B16 everywhere

Despite of the confirmation made evident by B16's omnipresence on all channels, Samuel The Clash of Civilisations Huntington's article on the renaissance of religion (german) is curiously devoid of analysis & interpretation. Looking at what the ongoing Weltjugendtag seems to be all about, I don't think that this renaissance is a sustainable one - the church & the audience have just (re-)discovered the attraction of mass entertainment & the feel good factor. So the church has a tryst with pop culture - there's hardly anything more fickle. The hangover will be bad.
