    That's honestly rather simplistic and dumb.

    According to the NDE people, sitting on the fence is no option.

    So, the NDE crowd proved that their experience wasn't just the effect of their brain shutting down from hypoxia?

    The new pope's a badass named Franz, who comes to clean shit out. With fire.

    Nah, but seriously, it's yet another conservative, except he apparently doesn't like bling as much as other popes and is Argentinian.

    Everything ok with the Pope being argentine, but... Berogoglio? Seriously? :o

    You would understand if you were argentine.

    Hope he doesn't shame us too much.

    In Argentina, powerful people who "don't like bling" are usually the worst and use that as a cheap way to make themselves look better.

    Even if Bergoglio "doesn't like bling", he's still a Church man who had ties with the latests dicatorship which killed thousands of people, and this new place in the Vatican will not make him a better guy at all, I am sure.

    But yeah a person who lacks "bling" seems to always look nicer than a person who lacks the blood of others on his hands.

    Wiki:

    ------------
    "Relations with the Argentine government

    Critics have accused him of ignoring the plight of victims during the country’s military dictatorship from 1976-1983, despite victims and their relatives relating first-hand accounts of torture, death and kidnappings to the priests he supervised as leader of the Jesuit Order.[27]

    On 15 April 2005, a human rights lawyer filed a criminal complaint against Bergoglio, as superior in the Society of Jesus of Argentina, accusing him of involvement in the kidnapping by the Navy in May 1976 (during the military dictatorship) of two Jesuit priests.[28] The priests, Orlando Yorio and Francisco Jalics, were found alive five months later, drugged and semi-nude. Yorio accused Bergoglio of effectively handing them over to the death squads by declining to tell the regime that he endorsed their work. Jalics refused to discuss it after moving into seclusion in a German monastery.[29] Horacio Verbitsky, an Argentine investigative journalist and author, wrote a book about this and other related events titled El Silencio: de Paulo VI a Bergoglio: las relaciones secretas de la Iglesia con la ESMA.[30]".

    Nah, there have been Popes from like...Syria and stuff.

    Oh look, another old white man became Pope. Exciting. I wonder if he's conservative about stuff? He is. Well, I am amazed.

    So much for 'modernizing' the church, like they were saying they wanted to do.
