KingKauff: What I really wonder is what the spread is like for the Conclave meals
TheOther: Millions watching a stovepipe online now have nothing to do.
deadsanta: Wow, that's a lot of military parade for the hippie peacenik religion Jesus founded. It must be heartwarming for Catholics to know that their religious donations are being spent on mercenaries with automatic weapons. Come to think on it, you'd think Catholicism would be on the rise in America for that reason alone.
bighairyguy: He's getting fitted for his green jacket now.
DickDarlington: Hummm, should I know the lyrics?
GAT_00: robsul82: The CNN.com guy left his mic on. Got to hear the production manager talking with someone named Emma about how "the last announcement with Ratzinger was in Latin, so it's important that someone knows it."The Beeb covered that 10 minutes ago, about how they need to be quick on the translation.
NeoCortex42: digitalrain: Agreed. I don't want a NoAm Pope though. Most of the child molestation coverups occurred over here. I don'twant that kind of complicity sitting on the Pope throne.Same here. I would rather the boring European Pope who would change nothing over an American Pope.
Supes: Car_Ramrod: Serious question: Why don't they just pick Jesus as Pope? Am I missing something?He's Jewish. Pope needs to be Catholic.
Theaetetus: Probably a bunch of old meat between new buns.
lecavalier: The whole thing is just complete nonsense.
Endive Wombat: what is the purpose of this marching band stuff?
Weaver95: Petey4335: Weaver95: August11: What the hell is taking him so long? Put on the gown and get on the balcony! Sheesh.they had to put the mind control parasite on first.So, we're going to get a 15 year rein of this pope, he's going to die by the hands of G'kar and Vir will be the next pope?pretty much, yeah.
what_now: Excellent job, Subby.I have a feeling this is one of those headlines that was thought up in advance, like mine for when Dick Cheney dies.
AngryDragon: Real modernization, not Vatican II (ugh)
Weaver95: iheartscotch: Weaver95: Peter the Roman. that's his name. Peter the Roman.or Pieter DeVries. that would be better.Yeaaaahhhh, the mind sees what it wants to see.St. Malachy might have been right; or he might have gotten into the holy hooch. But, I guarantee; the name, Peter the Roman, follows this next pope FOR-EV-ER, FOR-EV-ER, FOR-EV-ERonly if this Pope ends up being the last one and the Church implodes.
antidisestablishmentarianism: scottydoesntknow: [2.bp.blogspot.com image 850x478]Soooo Close to a simulpost.
WhyteRaven74: digitalrain: Most of the child molestation coverups occurred over hereActually in parts of Europe it was at least as bad as in the US.
AngryDragon: MNguy: neritz:Acceptable, but the butt hurt will be much greater with a black one./non-Catholic here.Non-practicing Catholic here. Chance of black Pope = <0% Latin = 3% Old white guy = 96.7%I can live with that if the "old white guy" is a Jesuit. That is the only hope that the Catholic Church has any real upheaval and modernization. Real modernization, not Vatican II (ugh)
Theaetetus: KingKauff: What I really wonder is what the spread is like for the Conclave mealsProbably a bunch of old meat between new buns.
allegedman: QUICK SOMEBODY STAMPEDE CATTLE THROUGH THE VATICAN
bluorangefyre: God help us if its (a) that guy from Ghana who's named Peter
mootmah: Endive Wombat: what is the purpose of this marching band stuff?Vatican Anthem. They're a sovereign country.
henryhill: cgraves67: Do you suppose that Swiss Guard unit has been standing around in their parade uniforms for 2 days waiting for an announcement?Those arent parade uniforms, they wear them every day.
fruitloop: [i171.photobucket.com image 479x269]Yes, yes! fark you, too!
FirstNationalBastard: (with the exception of Grant Morrison's run)
FirstNationalBastard: To be fair, all X-Men storylines (with the exception of Grant Morrison's run) have been horrible since the mid-80s.
wxboy: Justin Bieber
Gulper Eel: If Tebow comes out on that balcony I'm getting you all drunk.
durbnpoisn: Good. Can we just get over this already?Speaking as a non-Catholic, I find it completely absurd that the news media is portraying this as some sort of gigantic event for all of humanity. My coffee will still taste the same tomorrow... In other words, it means less than nothing to me.
robsul82: Papa.Oscar.Papa.Echo.POPE/BAH GAWD KING HE'S COMING THROUGH THE CROWD
