So, Catholics have a new Pope! Not the open-minded one, but the German representative of the Conservative side of the Catholic Church! That’s just great…They deal with the everyday changing world by choosing to go back to the Old School. Brilliant indeed…
Last night I saw a comment of his brother, saying he could never be as popular and attract people as John Paul II did! Really? So, after a Pope that visited so many countries and even had a speech in Romanian when he visited Bucharest and who was worshiped just for who he was and how he acted when surrounded by people, they think the flag should be carried on by someone who is the exact opposite…I’m sure they don’t expect a popularity decrease of the Catholicism! Cause I do.
I always admired Catholic priests for being more open-minded than the Orthodox priests. But I guess that will soon be over! Personally, I think the Italian preferito was a better choice just because he seemed so much warmer and more of a camera-material than the new Pope. But I cannot vote! And maybe the Catholics need a strong hand to publicly fight “heresies” like “The Da Vinci Code”! I’m sure sails for such books will increase.
