    I do not envy him that job.

    If he tries to clean up the Vatican bank from doing its money laundry business he might wake up dead like Pope John Paul I .

    Whatever one feels about the Roman Catholic Church, the immediate future certainly looks like it will be entertaining.
    Boy, I wish I was a whole bunch of flies on a lot of walls inside there at the moment.
    And some people are surely squirming. The comfortable ride is going to get rather bumpy.

    The cardinal seen as a rabid reformer who’d clean things up is still a cardinal. The cardinal seen as the biggest insider who’d make sure things stayed exactly as they are is still a cardinal.


    Pope Cisco the Kid should be shown holding question marks in both hands, with a few sparrows perched on his arms.


    We know all about the rumours that he helped the government create desaparecidos, and the story of the tiny flat with no servants that he lived in as cardinal, and that he mostly used public transportation. But what he’ll be as Pope, no one except maybe Cisco has any idea.

    And Obama is still president. Get on with your life Ima. There are 1 billion plus people to whom this DOES matter. Read some world history to figure out why!

    “But what he’ll be as Pope, no one except maybe Cisco has any idea.”
    I think you are right. What he was a a priest, bishop and cardinal don’t matter now. He is the Pope, and as he becomes immersed in the Vatican it will slowly envelope him. After his election he went and paid his bill in true honorable fashion. But that was his decision, within his control. As Pope more of those decisions will be removed from his control as politics and the mechanics of the Vatican get involved and have to be navigated. Not to mention he is reported to have a very conservative ideology so little is likely to change. At least little of substance to the real world and it’s people’s real lives..

    Nice cartoon. It hadn’t occurred to me that if they HAD chosen a pope from Africa, The Onion could have re-run it’s headline “Black Man Given World’s Worst Job.”

    Christianity was founded on the teachings and ministry of a man who railed against the corruption and abuse of organized religion of his time. How sad that the organized religions that claim to spread Christ’s teachings have themselves become corrupt, abusive, and oppressive.

    Entertaining to disinterested middle class straight men, perhaps. I highly doubt those who are ignored or oppressed by Church dogma find it so.

    He’s gonna need that extra-strength cleanser. You know, the one that’s labeled “for use on built-up lies, corruption and malfeasance”.

    @Omnius

    Can’t argue with that.
    I hope all other religions clean up their acts in this regard. Especially the Dalai Lama’s group.
    And then they go after the Atheists. They’re no better than any other.
    And finally root out all institutions that have no affiliations to anything but have harmed children.

    Pope Francis I has his own skeletons, his pious persona and his close ties to the dictators of Argentina. He has done scrubbing of the slime in his background but some of us know it anyway.

    @ScottPM

    There’s that tired conservative diatribe. Do you have any idea of who really is the majority of those on food stamps? PEOPLE WITH JOBS. Why are there so many working poor who qualify for food stamps? Because there are more people looking for work than there are jobs so it’s an “employers market” unlike the “employee’s market” during Clinton’s administration. When it is the employers’ market they get to pay people less, not less than the employer can afford, just less due to higher competition for the jobs available. When the employer pays less they keep more and thus increase the wealth divide in America and push more people into poverty who then qualify for food stamps. And the economic conditions that cause the mass of poor started under president bush, and has continued thanks in part to bush era policies and in large part due to congressional republican obstruction. Evidently you don’t know a thing about how the real world works, just what your party’s propaganda factory tells you.
