You mean the Ford Foundation? ;) 

Catholicism has the hooks in it to be reprogrammed, provided the right
code. Ratzinger is, IMHO likely to only last a few years. He's 78
already, and likely to be like the first John Paul, who kicked off
after only a month. Popes generally are not as long lived in office as
JPII was. I would suggest that, at this point, likely candidates for
Benedict's succession be provided with the arguments that will enable a
significant shift in church thinking when a younger generation takes over.
