    He’s got the whole fisherman thing going, plus it’s a pretty good bet he’s already celibate.

    With all this talk about who would be a better Pope … I wonder … not being Catholic … just how much power does the Pope really have? Could a new Pope suddenly say that priests and nuns can marry and no longer have to be celibate … reverse the stand on contraception … etc … can he do that? Or does everything have to be agreed on by some committee?
    Is the Pope like a king .. or a president who has to answer to various councils?

    Bruno, I think he could..The Infallible thing should be enough. But wow, now that would raise a ruckus, eh? I’d love to see that!

    I’m a recovering Catholic….

    the next pope, should be a young married woman with kids. someone who lives in the real world, and not fantasy land of 1400s. that praying will not alleviate poverty or disease. that all those old men who covered up abuses should be defrocked. and, close all of their overseas diplomatic missions since they are not a real nation. and, they should admit gays into their congregation and the clergy.

    the reason for their opulence is their large amounts of cash they have laying around.

    Imagine a huge bureaucracy thousands of years in the making. It contains elements of many archaic philosophies. Imagine doctrines based on metaphysical standards arrived at by theological hodge-podge, increasingly separated by modern realities and needs.
    Imagine the Church as a huge edifice with all this encrusted on it, uprooted, put on wheels (ultimate Pope Mobile), and steered by the Pope down a paved road with inevitable potholes of human politics and greed.
    Enough metaphors and analogies for you? (Drank too much coffee this morning.) The answer to your question is, No. Besides, anyone selected as pope, would not make decisions by himself without consultation with a lot of similar-thinking cardinals and theologians.
    There was a movie made years ago, with Anthony Quinn elected pope. I might be sorry I didn’t look it up, but I think at the end he made a personal decision to give all the Church’s riches to the poor of the world — in particular, China! How things have changed!
    In the real world, major personal proclamations by the Pope like that or the ones you describe would not happen in any short amount of time.
