So many have said Cardinals from the U.S. would likely not be considered, because they are from a super power.  However, it now seems both Cardinals Dolan and O'malley are now rising stars.  Apparently, they've impressed Italians with their charisma.  Dolan does seem very charismatic.  But, I've been reading how he is accused of paying off pedophile priests to go away.  If true, it would seem like status quo, and he wouldn't be the right person to clean up the problems.

CNN is reporting and showing that a Dove has landed on the Chapel Chimney...oh nevermind they are now reporting it is a Seaqull and has no religious significance.

Ps- the Seagull just took a big shit on the chimney and took off, unsure of significance

Out with the old, in with the same old;

Pope Francis Called Gay Adoption A Form Of Discrimination Against Children


REUTERS
Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, Argentina, has been elected the new pope and will now be known as Pope Francis.

Bergoglio, 76, was the "runner-up" last time the College of Cardinals elected a new pope because he "appealed to conservatives," according to John Allen of the National Catholic Reporter.

Here's more from Allen:

Bergoglio is seen an unwaveringly orthodox on matters of sexual morality, staunchly opposing abortion, same-sex marriage, and contraception. In 2010 he asserted that gay adoption is a form of discrimination against children.

In a letter to the monasteries of Buenos Aires explaining his position, Bergoglio wrote: "Let's not be naive, we're not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God."

Furthermore, he said the bill called into question "the identity, and the survival of the family: father, mother, and children" and said the country needed "the special assistance of the Holy Spirit, to place the light of truth in the middle of the darkness of error, to defend us against the enchantment of so many sophistries with which they seek to justify this bill."

Nevertheless, Allen notes that in 2001 Bergoglio "visited a hospice to kiss and wash the feet of 12 AIDS patients."

Part of the draw of Bergoglio was his personal simplicity because he was a Prince of the Church "who chose to live in a simple apartment rather than the archbishop's palace, who gave up his chauffeured limousine in favor of taking the bus to work, and who cooked his own meals," according to Allen.

Did you side with the junta while people were disappearing in Argentina? Do you have to have a fascist background to be a Pope these days? Of course the pundits are peeing themselves because he touched a diseased pinkie.

Indeed I did! I even decorated my apartment with their dried foreskin remnants. Vile, godless communists, all of them.

Now that you mention all of this, maybe I am actually the Pope and am in some sort of fourth dimension vortex at the moment.

ps: the Pope is coming to Philadelphia in 2015 for the "Year of the Family"! How exciting. I need to get pregnant quickly.

Miss P I'm glad you decided to put it away and wait, a little respect for the new Pope is now in order.

Yah, I would say the operative word there is "little" in respect. Don't get me started...

I reckon we're all fortunate that they didn't have to campaign for the position like our great political leaders do.  That would have been way too much to deal with.

ps: the Pope is coming to Philadelphia in 2015 for the "Year of the Family"! How exciting. I need to get pregnant quickly.

Will that be an Immaculate Conception or will you order the regular serving with grunting, sweating, and residual deposits?

At dinner tonight, we had a conversation about how much power the pope really has. 

If a pope decided to sell off everything (especially the Vatican), give all the money to the poor, and scale down the institution to a small church, would he have the authority to do it?  He is God's representative on Earth, after all.  If God told him to do it, who could question it?  Well, who could stop it? 

Or, would the hierarchy step in, and rule him coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs, and have him overruled?  Just something we thunk about.  Does the pope not have control over their assets, money and property?  Does his authority basically stop at setting church doctrine? 

I know it seems silly, but not totally out of the realm of possibility to have a pope go rogue.
