Wasn't that African cardinal a forerunner the last time?

The Vatican has to abide by the Rooney Rule.


why? the nfl doesn't.

ariseatex: Al-Jazeera is now implying that because the Pontifex twitter account has just been re-activated, the Cardinal known for being an active tweeter (Cardinal Scherer of Brazil) is probably the new pope.


That was the theory going in: that they would name an African or Latin pope to try to stem the tide of Evangelicals, particularly in Latin America.

Weaver95: WITHOUT accidentally summoning a greater daemon of slaanesh.


I would have went with Tzeentch but Slaanesh is acceptable

FloydA: Endive Wombat: what do they use to make the smoke white?

yes, this is the most important question.

I'm not sure what particular method the Vatican uses, but water vapor in the smoke will do it.


So the tears of young men, got it

DamnYankees: Nabb1: DamnYankees: What's the over/under one how many children the new pope raped? 15?

Man, you must have worked pretty hard to come up with something that original.

I wasn't aware I needed to be creative in my disgust for organizations that commit and aid in the commission of child rape.


Just doesn't seem like you to go for such low-hanging fruit.  I leave the defense of pederasty to your lap dog who seems to be chirping about here.

I take it we're just waiting for the Pope to get back from the woods after having been elected by Catholic bears.

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.

He has to write an acceptance speech. Difficulty: in Aramaic.

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.


The Pope is a major political figure. I'm not Catholic, but what the Catholic Church does and believes damn well affects you and me--for example, birth control? Yeah, that'll affect both of us, no matter what gender you are.

Ignoring political decisions because 'the sun will rise tomorrow' in any form is stupid and short-sighted. Politics controls huge amounts of everyone's daily life, and the majority of our important life choices. Living in a representative democracy means we have the duty to know what's going on and make good choices about our laws and representatives, not pretend they don't affect us and we're somehow 'above it'. That's dangerous for everyone.

Well it IS the election of a new world leader and millions regard him as a representative to God. His actions can heavily influence the world stage, not so much in the US but in places like Africa.

syrynxx: chrylis: Nothing about the office, but I'm pretty sure the word "papa" shows up once or twice.

Perhaps depending on the translation, if they translate Aramaic 'abba' into Greek or Latin. And here's where belief runs off the rails of provability - my Master Mason friend insisted that the verse about the 'keys to the Kingdom of Heaven' that Catholics use as the foundation for the papacy was not in original texts, and was inserted by human transcribers later.


If so, it was a *very* early addition. The UBS 3rd edition doesn't list any alternate readings for that verse. I'm more skeptical about Masonic claims.

As a Catholic, I also find the attention completely absurd.However, according to the Prophecy of the Popes, this one is the last Pope


Really? So if one of the cardinals pushes him off the balcony in a jealous rage, it's over and done?

These guys can't vamp for crap.  At least discuss history and the like.
