Wind's in the east, a mist coming in
Like something is brewing and about to begin
Can't put my finger on what lies in store
but I feel what's to happen has happened before...

Any bets as to what irreverent name the atheist community will bestow upon him?

RE: The Papal conclave is over
At first glance he seems like a nice geezer. Bugger!

Pope Francis (from here http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/mar...-key-facts )

• He likes to travel by bus.
• He has lived for more than 50 years with one functioning lung. He had the other removed as a young man because of infection.
• He is the son of an Italian railway worker.
• He trained as a chemist.
• He is the first non-European pope in the modern era.
• He claims that adoption by homosexuals is a form of discrimination against children but believes that condoms "can be permissible" to prevent infection.
• In 2001 he washed and kissed the feet of Aids patients in a hospice.
• He speaks fluent Italian, as well as Spanish and German.
• Until now he has been living in a small flat, eschewing a formal bishop's residence.
• He told Argentinians not to travel to Rome to celebrate if he was appointed but to give their money to the poor instead.
• He is believed to have been the runner-up in the last papal conclave in 2005.
• He has co-written a book, in Spanish, called Sobre el Cielo y la Tierra (On Heaven and Earth). You can buy it on Kindle.
• Though conservative on church doctrine, he has criticised priests who refuse to baptise babies born to single mothers.

I'm sure that did them a whole world of good. The ostentatious "humility" of the Catholic church is despicable.

How about those who dedicate their lives to helping, treating and caring for those people, instead of doing publicity stints (in rather poor taste, too). Plus, he can wash as many feet as he wants to, that will never clear his precious church of their responsibility and even guilt over AIDS in Africa.

He may not be that nazi abomination we had before, but he's the same conservative Jesuit bigot they all are.

Phew! That's a relief.

RE: The Papal conclave is over
My schools going nuts over the whole thing. Now their starting to preach the holy name of the pope everywhere and condemning all other religions and screwing us atheists over. Well, they were before, its just massively worse now.

Apparently the new pope is a jingoist when it comes to the Falklands. Let's hope being pope changes his stance and he preaches non-violence, or simply doesn't get involved. The last thing Argentina needs is more fuel for that nonsense.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.

Well said, I can't give a crap about that useless feud.
