I hope it's the black guy.

Appointed by God. But also a 2/3 majority vote.

they're so secretive. they don't let people in to see the process, so how do we really know they're discussing about pope selection instead of just watching child porn?

It's just like any other fraternity. They probably even use black and white marbles.

This is huge since this is the first time in history that we have a non European pope.

/edit: Son of Italian immigrants apparently...that probably helped him with the votes.

I was baptized a catholic & did my first communion and now as a young adult I realize the Catholic religion is one of the most evil in the world. I hope this religion gets destroyed very soon.
