    It appears that there is white smoke.

    When I posted, the smoke was still coming out of the chimney.

    He's extremely conservative. What crappy times we live in.

    Yeah, it's all cyclical though. Conservatives will take over 'till the world is all screwed up then we liberals will get our chance 'till things are all screwed up again.

    This is a very surprising choice. I never thought he would be elected. I considered him to be a too controversial candidate. Now he has to prove he can be a bridgebuilder between all the factions within the RCC and he has to prove he can reach out to the other world-religions.

    May God bless Pope Benedict XVI.

    What do you think, personally, about his selection, bridgebuilding aside? You're the most vocal Catholic on RHP (which I don't intend as a slur of any kind), and I'm interested to see what your reaction is.

    Since he's been the favorite all along, I don't know why it would be a surprise. I'd call it a "W" for Ivanhoe's side; Ratzinger is an arch-conservative willing to run the Church into oblivion in the Western world by taking political positions unsupported by Jesus' teachings. He has been a firm believer in denying Communion to pro-choice RC politicians for example. Nice work, RCC; I'm sure this will pack 'em in the pews and start a flood of young people into the seminaries!
