How to choose a Pope: an interactive guide

To elect the successor to Pope Benedict XVI, the cardinal-electors will be housed in a guesthouse within the Vatican. The prelates will travel by bus to and from the Sistine Chapel, where the voting takes place beneath Michelangelo's fresco of the Last Judgment.

Really...! (http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/interactive/2013/mar/04/choose-a-pope-interactive-guide):D

Crap! The only progressive one out of all 115 is also the one who was stripped of all his public and administrative duties because of his role in protecting priests accused of sexual abuse in the US...:gasmaske:

Back to the drawing board.

10 things about the conclave (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-21514787)

Portable loos play an essential role - FACT!

Conclave comes from the Latin "cum-cave" meaning literally "choirboys mouth"

:eek:

We've got movement!

The press coverage has been hysterically funny all week. They've basically been reporting on the NOTHING.

He still hates the gays and doesn't want women priests but he's ok with a bit of contraception to prevent disease... so a moderniser.

Well, he has been implicated in leading a church that did nothing to speak out against the Junta. Maybe he was the undercover 4th General...?

Funko

Catholic church not speaking out about fascism shocker
