    Official - Pope Francis I now exists!

    I just wanted to be first to say the name on TSR. So, what do we make of this new Pope?

    His wikipedia entry is running slowly!
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jorge_Bergoglio

    He's a Jesuit. He's a Conservative and although he is supposed to be pro- 'social justice', in practise he takes a reactionary approach to it.

    So Jesuits are more conservative within the Catholic Church? Because what the Catholic church needs is more conservatism.

    If it's a case of "old wine, new bottles", will they at least pimp the Popemobile?

    Just a little bit of progress, please.

    *Sigh* I'd better start going to the gym to prepare for when I'm conscripted in the upcoming Falklands war... :grumble:
    With the election of Francis I, any chance of another Falklands conflict has vanished. There is not a chance whilst he is Pontiff that a Argentine government will touch The Falklands.

    Never! Curses. Discovered.

    I have a bit of a thing at the moment about Brian Cox, I actually think he would look pretty nice in a Cosmologists Popemobile, waving to the crowds from his bullet-proof perspex box. Or Harry Styles? It would show off his lovely hair well.

    Do you mean that as a serious point? If anything, given his statements about it on record, they will be encouraged.

    Mind you, Cardinals being what they are, he may have just been doing his best to 'blend in' in Buenos Aires, saying things to please the crowd.

    Ok. I'm sure there's a joke or reference in there somewhere but I'm not getting it.

    Oh, don't worry, it's not subtle - I was just thinking, who is even more famous than the Pope? Answer - Kim Kardashian! Would she be comfortable with a Popemobile? She doesn't need one - her fans commune with her via the tabloids and she likes being close up with the papps. However, her cats may need special protection when on display, she is very fond of them and probably would like them to not be in actual physical contact with her mobs of fans.

    I suppose a Biebermobile is also a possibility though.

    Ah fair enough. I thought there was a more to it. I guess their cats/kats need their own pope mobiles when out for walks to....keep up with the Kardashians.

    He is quoted as saying that homosexuals should be treated with compassion and respect; he is against gay marriage and adoption. Make of that what you will.
    Yeahhh but that's sort of like when the religious say "I'll pray for you" towards atheists, that sort of compassion. Meaning he thinks they're wrong and sinful but he still "cares about them". So definitely no gay marriage!
