Cheers, shouts and applause erupted from the soaked crowd sheeple that had gathered in St Peter's Square despite torrential rain to await the decision of the 115 cardinal-electors.

deadsanta: Seriously wtf, pick your pope-name and come out already, I'm sick of winter!


They're probably trying to convince the new pope that now is the WORST time to pick "Peter" as your pope name.

MFAWG: eagles95: Come on black pope for epic lulz!!

Sadly, my BiL would probably quit the church.


I'd LOVE to see a black pope, just for laughs. Half the Catholics in the world are MASSIVE racists, I'm sure. Most people at MY church are.

I would quit the church too, but only because the black guy is SUPER conservative.

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.


Speaking as an atheist, it's a pretty big deal to 1.2 Billion humans.  What are you some kind of fruity "Jesus Rock" new aged brand of evangelical with an inferiority complex about Catholicism like most other American Christians?  You seem petty and small.

sometimes implantation of the parasite doesn't go well with the host organism.  you want to make sure it's firmly attached or that the host doesn't have any oddities that might interfere with the control parasite.  once you've established contact and verified control, then the rest of the ceremony can proceed.

I'm betting they actually chose one last night, but let him have one last night on the town before the mantle of faux righteousness came down.

I say check out security cam footage from all the Roman strip clubs and see which pope contendee was doing shots and getting lapdances.

You can't tell me that Cardinals don't stay up late at night, laying in bed, dreaming up their possible Pope names.

Cyclometh:  And another few decades of backward, misogynistic, euro-centric idiocy.

I could not agree more. New Pope, same old shiat.

Crackers Are a Family Food: According to Brian Williams, someone just peeked through the curtains on the balcony.  He noted that they are thin curtains.

I also cast a vote for The Undertaker.

He enjoyed that role way too much.

I'm ok with Tim as Pope

Silverstaff: cgraves67: "Wow, I'm the pope. Oh, crap! I'm the pope!" - the new pope

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1456472/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/We_Have_a_Pope_%28film%29

There was a movie with that plot a couple of years ago.  A humble old Cardinal is elected Pope, and freaks out at the realization of the magnitude of it.


The Pope is given time to pray in the "Room of Tears" before he comes out on the balcony. It's named after the typical reaction to the, "Holy crap, I'm pope" thought.

That's also what the delay was.

Is picking your new name this hard? Shouldn't you already have the name picked out, just like you have your Oscar speech written already?
 
2013-03-13 03:11:45 PM  
Ok...Pope is coming out now
 
2013-03-13 03:11:47 PM

At this point I think the new pope may have fallen in the Holy Shiatter...

/srsly, how long does it take to prep a pope, anyways?

You could always watch the trainwreck that is Anderson Cooper & Kathy Griffin instead.
