6. He's the son of Italian immigrants.

This is why he was elected. An Italian who is also Argentine. Argentina is the most European of the SA countries. Italians are the largest ethnic group, especially in Buenos Aires. In addition, SA is about the only continent in which the RCC is not in decline. If the Church really wanted to nod to SA, it would have elected a Mestizo pope, since Mestizos make up the majority or Latin Americans.

I worked for the Jesuits for 15 years. It's the Gay wing of the Catholic church and they all about education and science.

I am going to admit my ignorance about the Catholic church but wouldn't that mean that this is a positive thing? Nothing changes overnight but could that mean that this pope could start things moving in a positive, more modern direction?



That's unlikely. From what I understand he's at odds with the Jesuits in South America on poverty and wealth. They support the church actually advocating for and pressuring governments for solutions to end poverty and change wealth disparity... and he opposes that. Basically, he thinks the church should just continue to use it as a marketing tool, rather then support actual fixes. He talks about pverty plenty, generally in the manner of, "You should be nicer to poor people when you talk to them."

The best we could hope for is that now that he's ostensibly the guy in charge of the church that maybe he might possibly have been suppressing his real feelings on poverty issues, and now feels like he could start actually advocating for changes to the problems he likes to opine about... but that seems unlikely since he opposed the fellow Jesuits who wanted just that.

He's apparently extremely socially conservative, which is probably why he was picked, and so the church joining the modern world on social issues is even less likely... as in - don't hold your breath because it just 'aint gonna happen. He's a staunch anti-gay bigot, and he opposes birth control.

So they picked a pope who previously has led a church that not only turned a blind eye to atrocities during his rule, but actually supported the regime commiting them, is still anachronistic about birth control, and is still bigoted against gays - but also has a carefully crafted image as someone who is against poverty, yet won't go so far as to say we should demand that something actually be done to fix it. So... not really a departure from the last pope whatsoever except he was born on another continent. Whoopty-freakin' doo...

He's 76; medicine's changed quite a bit in the last 70 years.  I know that they used to do pneumonectomies (and phrenic nerve transections, and other messed up stuff) for tuberculosis infections, so maybe he had the consumption at some point.

Although interestingly the other lung was removed when he was a kid, and it makes me wonder if his body was able to increase the efficiency and/or size of the existing lung as he grew into an adult.  I think if he had his lung removed a couple of years ago, he'd probably already be dead.

If that's the case then it's not too late to launch my own bid to become the next pope.

WHY YOU SHOULD VOTE FOR POPE GORDON

As pope, I will institute the folllowing changes:
To the Church:

- There will no longer be any problem with being gay or same-sex marriage.
- Premarital sex will be permitted provided that contraception is used.
- Clergy will no longer be required to be celibate. But if we catch any of them touching kids they'll be handed over to the civil authorities straight away along with all of the evidence we have against them.
- Communion wafers will be available in a variety of delicious flavours.

To the office of the Pope itself:

- The Popemobile will be thoroughly pimped out. Hydraulics will be installed.
- The Pope will no longer wear a dress. The pope will wear a custom-tailored zoot suit and dark sunglasses.
- Just to be sure about the clergy no longer being celibate. The Pope will no longer be celibate.
- A wide assortment of merchandise will be sold with all proceeds going to charity. Buy your Pope Gordon action figure today!

He's warm and friendly, so he's a good PR man unlike the recently departed one.  The big question is if he can replace the Curia or not.  He personally does not come from a church with a large bureaucracy, so he can't just send everyone in Rome to some monastery and bring in his guys to replace them (whereas supposedly the Italian candidate had a massive power base and could have easily brought in his guys quickly).  However Francis is a Jesuit so he could clean house and bring Jesuits in en masse.  The question seems to be which one he's do, which in turns shows if entrenched scumbags won or not.

Corrected for 1950:

He is just another brainwashed fool that thinks even if he doesn't believe homosexuality blacks and whites marrying is normal he has to at least appear to agree with the overly vocal politically correct minority lest he be ridiculed by strangers on the internet and called horrible overused names like homophobe racists or intolerant.

When you take it upon yourself to dictate what's normal and acceptable behavior, and believe that only certain laws should apply to people who meet your standards, you're intolerant.


  Your oh so typical censoring of my point and putting words in my mouth is quite disgusting. You are so dumb you don't see that your last paragraph is exactly what I am saying. YOU liberal holier-than-though retards don't get to tell me or anyone else what is normal or acceptable. The pope is standing up for his beliefs and I am as well. I was raised to believe in the classic North American family which includes a mother, father, and children. I really don't give a flying fark what any other consensual adults choose to do in the privacy of their own home as it is none of my business but nobody can force me to believe it is acceptable to define yourself by your sexual preferences publicly nor minimize my view of what a normal family should be. I don't hate anyone as a group for their tastes or feelings for others, I just don't want to hear about it constantly nor do I feel it is ok to preach homosexuality being normal to my children in public schools any more than I find it acceptable for them to be taught a religion I don't believe in.
  I believe we are ALL born as equals on this earth. Go ahead, be gay, it doesn't affect my life one bit just shut the hell up about it already because I'm tired of you asshole thought police farkwads trying to tell me how to think and feel.

His beliefs about marriage and family do not make him a bigot or an indecent human, regardless of what you may think about those beliefs.

We were expecting them to actually try to fix their image problem and appoint someone that presents at least a mildly nuanced viewpoint and a conciliatory tone, yes.  I mean, the church's primary point of fame for essentially all non-Catholics and a number of Catholics is "condones the gay rape of prepubescent children by clergymen".  So grabbing someone that goes all fire-and-brimstone on sexual issues is pretty much the single stupidest thing they could do here.

I mean, some combination of a resigned "well, render unto Caesar" and maybe a "we hate the sin, but don't hate the sinner, you can't [perform action x] in our churches but you can still confess and attend mass and so on because we don't wanna be dicks about it" is actually pretty par for the course for both Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular, and would cause a lot of criticism to die down.  The church didn't survive half a dozen schisms and a reformation by taking a firm stance and drawing a line in the sand, they've always bent with the wind... so I'm not sure why they're determined to take their faith down in flames with them like the protestants this time.

Well, they've got to say something positive about a new pope.  You can't simply say, "Yeah, this picked this guy because he played the political game the best". They had an even harder time with the last dude, as I recall they best thing they could say about him was that he had a conservative viewpoint on Catholicism and then they'd make up something beneficial that a conservative pope might do for the sect.  Of course, they didn't realize at the time that he was instrumental in protecting child diddlers which is probably a contributing factor to him emeritiring.

It's the first time a new pope has taken a name that hasn't already been used by a former pope since Pope Lando in 913.

Only a few popes took regnal names before the 11th century, and Lando wasn't one of them. Nor was anyone else without a roman numeral or now known as "the first." Lando was simply his own name.

So Francis is the first pope ever to take a name that wasn't used before (or second, if you count John Paul I). He is the first since Lando not to have a roman numeral (John Paul I did call himself John Paul the First).

He's also the first pope from outside of Europe since the 8th century.

4. He has taken the name Pope Francis. Not Francis I yet. "It will become Francis I after we have a Francis II," the Vatican said.) It's the first time a new pope has taken a name that hasn't already been used by a former pope since Pope Lando in 913.


I think we just found out which Pope had the coolest name.

What about friggin' John Paul? Granted, both names had been used individually before, but not in combination.


nah if he'd gone all the way and added George Ringo we'd be talking

Those are perks of the job. Unless he orders all the walls to be trimmed in gold, I'm not gonna fault him for moving into the Catholic's version of the White House.

But I doubt that much will change with this pope and every other pope before him.
