    Could this mean there are many Catholics in the Third World, and that their time has come that a native of a Third World country will become Pope?

    It is a private club, just because dues are collected worldwide does not change the exclusivity of the club.

    There will NOT be what they consider a second class member in charge, not ever.

    Listen guys, before John Paul II there was never a Pope who was not Italian, things are changing with the Catholic Church so let’s see who the next Pope will be before you make our comments.

    It might be in your favor to have been a Nazi.
    Fear of a black pope.

    Check the history before writing. There have already been two popes from north Africa.

    Well, I’m at least going to wait until the candidates name their running mates before expressing my preference.


    Paul Ryan for Vice-Pope!

    Your right I forgot the Borgias. Alexander the VI and his Uncle what’s his name.

    “When will those A-Holes even consider someone from the US (who provides MOST of the MONEY sent to the Vatican for Humanitarian uses!!!) and is PROPERLY given credit for all of its accomplishments, then MAYBE a US Cardinal MIGHT be considered.”


    I read in the paper this morning that something like 54% of the world’s Catholics live in “the Americas”, but bear in mind that that includes Central and South America. So why not an Argentine Pope or a Peruvian Pope?

    “Being non-catholic could be a drawback, I suppose.”


    Idiomatically, if nothing else.


    On the other hand, if the answer to “Does a bear poop in the woods?” might be “No” (some poop in zoos or circuses), perhaps “Is the Pope Catholic?” can be allowed equal uncertainty.

    More then likely the new Pope will be another doddering European Cardinal determined to continue the outmoded, obsolete, and irrelevant Dogma the Catholic Cult has been ramming down people’s throats for Hundreds and Hundreds of years…

    But, I keep hearing that anyone could be elected Pope. Maybe thats any Catholic. Counts me out, too.

    Would Catholics settle for a Prophet?
    I hear there is a Prophet out in Utah where ‘the desert blossoms like a rose’.
