Default And the winner is....

Yet another Vatican flunky assumes the position of God on earth and is apparently already in trouble regarding claims he turned his back on reports of human rights violations.

El primer Jesuita Papa de la historia. Sancta mater deus! Molto curioso . . .

The very first Jesuit pope. First they wouldn't let them in; then they had to use the back door. Now they just march in the grand entrance, sit down anywhere they please, and put their feet up on the silk brocade and gilded armrests.

Anyway, Jorge Mario will have to get into the anthropological matter of the sex lives of the higher primates of the Vatican pretty quickly.

Should make a great National Geographic or Discovery documentary eventually.

I ll credit his PR deptt., been reading much on his Secy., football club affiliation, political stances in past, charity works, personal life, how the future of Catholicism lies not just in Europe etc. etc., haven't read much on how he ll tackle the anthropological matter of the sex lives of the higher primates of the Vatican in particular and the Empire in general.

Will be interesting to watch as an outside observer when the initial euphoria and dysphoria felt in various quarters wears off and views start being reflected based on actions rather than perception.

Rather passionate, that lot.

No pun intended at all, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!

I wonder, choosing a 76 year-old, if Bergoglio isn't a type of interim pope, not intended to be around so long that he can entrench himself and his style. Wojtyla was only 58 and still skiing and clubbing and generally rousting about when he was elevated. He put his mark on the papacy. Some of the old hierarchy were glad to see him shipped off to Elysian Fields. A 76 year-old is not likely to have a 25-year reign. Not within the bounds of senility, at least.

The cardinali can't ignore the huge and growing African Roman Catholic world forever, which is more faithful to the dogmas and traditions, and very youthful demographically.
