Why do I get the feeling if he campaigned for it, you'd still oppose him for being too rich, too white, and too male while whispering to anyone who would listen, "he's Mormon you know...moonbat alert!"

Think about it. He could convert to Catholicism, still carry on the fine Mormon tradition of child molestation, and he wouldn't have to change his underwear style. He could then start an ecumenical movement and issue a papal bull to recognize the Mormon Church. It's win all round for him.

It's all fun and games until you need an exorcist. Then who are you going to call?

A Protestant? I don't think so.

Whey they count 99 popes, are they counting the great schism?

Oh great, Subby, you linked to a Playboy article that will get us all in deep kimshi with the NSFW-Nazis. Thanks a million.

That will never happen, because the church rules explicitly forbid a non-Catholic from becoming pope.

Side note: "must be Catholic" and "must be a man" are the only restrictions on who can be elected pope; everything else is just tradition.

I'd like to see video of the discussion and the voting. Can you imagine how bizzare that would look? Worse than Florida I'd imagine.

I was going to say how about calling the whole thing off and disbanding the whole organization.

Then you said that. Then I thought this:

And ironically, this is why that list had at least one person explicitly ineligible.  (Mel Gibson would actually be quite ineligible, because he's a member of a group that is considered to be in schism with the Roman Catholic Church (specifically, a small "traditionalist Catholic" group that pretty much maintains that the Roman Catholic Church has been effectively run by Satan since Vatican II).  The actual Catholic church doesn't recognise these groups as being actually Catholic, see, so no Pope Gibson. :D)

Nope, Must have a valid baptism, not necessarily a catholic one, and be a man are the only restrictions.  If the man accepts then he'd have to convert, be ordained (priest), be ordained (bishop), be ordained (arch bishop), and then be ordained again (cardinal) before he could be instated.

Technically he doesn't even have to be alive.

They should pick a millennial kid to be pope.
