    New Pope

    I cant take credit for this but notice how much the new pope looks like Palpatine:

    they're really not very similar except for the fact that they're both old

    you're just exhibiting age bias

    The new pope served Hitlers army (fact):

    I know. Still fun to make jokes about it though.

    I can see the whole church go right hands up when he is about to say something.

    I understand the cardinals election process.... But why vote for someone who is already old.

    As far at the WWII reference..... almost anyone who was "of age" was in the army then.

    the only thing that is of a concern to meis his conservatism... old doctrines and old beliefs period. Lets put a 20 y.o female in there and see what happens.

    Benedict is an interim pope. They don't expect him to live long. That's the whole reason he was elected. Sad, but very true.

    The problem with electing a younger person to pope, is the fact they do live too long. People then become very attached to the Pope, as everyone saw with John Paul III. It's not a bad thing, but it is a heavy loss when someone of that stature dies after so long in the spotlight.
