A lot of firsts with this guy. I bet the Brits are thrilled to death with the idea of an 'Argy' as Pope.
It won't take long to get tired of hearing, "Lighten up, Francis" when people disagree with anything he has to say.

Back-door Italian, in that that's where his father came from.

I don't think that there are really enough Catholics here to get worked up over anything papal?

Very nice to see an Argentine come in. Easily one of the best South American countries out there with some of the loveliest people I've ever met.

Gotta love this:

Homosexuality

He has affirmed church teaching on homosexuality, though he teaches the importance of respecting individuals who are gay or lesbian.[citation needed] He strongly opposed legislation introduced in 2010 by the Argentine Government to allow same-sex marriage, calling it a "real and dire anthropological throwback".[9] In a letter to the monasteries of Buenos Aires, he wrote: "Let's not be naive, we're not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God."[10] He has also insisted that adoption by gay and lesbian people is a form of discrimination against children.

I like it. To be quite honest, the thought of an Irish Mic from the US scared me. What especially concerned me was all the nattering naybobs from the US who they interviewed who were visiting the Vatican who were bleating on with their stupidities about women priests and other nonsense. Though I do have to agree with the lefties about celibate priests ... in the first world, it has created a club of falsetto-voiced men who live in a closet. Not so sure about that in the second and third worlds, though.
The essence of what is Catholicism lies outside of the US. The Argentinian is going to have a better grasp of this than some doofus from the west.
We basically got an Italian as both his parents were Italian immigrants.

Even better.

1. Immigration from the old world is generally locked in a time warp when it comes to cultural views. Italian immigration is typically from the central or south, so less chance of being corrupted by Northern sensibilities. Hopefully, that means he is going to be in sync with the old ways based on how he was raised.

2. Argentina hasn't been polluted with mass media to the extent we have here. Not that they're pristine little school children, but there is a larger sense of propriety and perspective as to striving for something greater over there.

As an interesting aside, I've been reading more and more comments lately about how when someone says they are an "athiest", most likely they are of Jewish heritage. I didn't realize until today that Richard Dawkins was of Jewish heritage. Just thought he was of Protestant heritage.

I didn't read this stuff anywhere. I made the connections and observations on my own. It's just interesting to me that others are independently making the same observations I have made on my own.

Which leads me to point 3:

3. Argentina hasn't been corrupted by Jewish secular Cultural Marxism to the extent that we have been in the US. Remember, that's where all the ex-Nazi's went. Lots of Nazi's=Fewer Jews to corrupt the national Catholic culture.

Just making educated guesses here based on "demographic" information, but I am very positive.

Another politically incorrect Pope.

To those cafeteria Catholics who complain? Just go ahead and become Anglicans and leave the rest of us alone!

The Marxist won't like him because he told them to pound salt when they were pushing "liberation theology", back in the day. The criticism's are soon to follow because he's not an Obamaesque pope. The church moved way left and has been steering back the last 30 years, unlike society. They move very slow but have carefully avoided the leftward drift that the gimmie dat and dis and don't cramp my style society worships.

I do wonder what his relationship is vis a vis the Argentine President. Not a fan of Fernandez-Kirchner.

Who cares? You guys can't look at everything from a political prism.

This selection has to do with faith, morality and the essence of maintaining that faith in a world that values the latest electronic gadget over furthering the human cause.

As my tour guide in Sicily told me (he was a professor), if you want to hear the real Sicilian language go to Brooklyn or Staten Island. The language they speak there hasn't been corrupted by the language of the North.

I think the same holds true with the religious and cultural aspects of the faith, which were brought over to Argentina and locked in a 1940 timewarp, before the advent of mass media led people to believe they know more than 2,000 years of cultural wisdom.

Very optimistic.

I did some googling, they don't think well of each other.

It would be nice to see the Argentines remember the cultural tradition, of throwing out their leaders!

That's irrelevant.

Listening to the news media drool over the selection, one would think that God's rules are subject to majority vote. I even heard Fox RADIO coverage talking about women priests, the Church's position on gays and other such pop-culture nonsense.

If people don't like the Church's positions on those matters, there are plenty of liberal options to choose from in the Protestant world.

The Church doesn't need to change what it believes in. It does, however, need to do a better job of teaching WHY the old ways work, and putting them into a common sense format that relates to people's lives so that EVERYBODY can understand the traditions.

I was told by a leftist that we were not permitted to vote on that.

The poorest people I've ever encountered were in interior Belize, near the border with Guatemala. And they were great people, too.
