RminusQ: /except for the obvious jokes, everything else there is accurate at least to what the current rules are
Great Porn Dragon: the amusing mental image of the Conclave playing rousing games of "Duck Duck Pope" did come to mind :D
JackieRabbit: dletter: Question I don't know the answer to.... do they release the "voting" at all on each 'round', or is it basically just either "No pope" or "pope" (with the whole smoke thing)? I mean, this doesn't happen that often, so, didn't know if they were maybe trying to "modernize" it or remove a little bit of the "cloak" on the process as well./wait, this is the Catholic Church I'm talking aboutNo one knows the manner in which the College of Cardinals selects the pope. It is one of the world's best kept secrets and they have no intention of changing their process. Remember, the RCC is just now modernizing few of their more ridiculous 14th century dogmas. There's still be an Inquisition if the Church had more power.
Butterfinger: I've been waiting to hear when the Cardinals were going to test the free agency market. It's about time.
Tim Tebow: I'm there right now, bro.NOW GET DOWN AND GIVE ME 50 HAIL MARYS!
