No, no american cardianal as pope, not because I hate america but because there are too many stu-pid people in this country. If an american becomes pope you will see a bunch of liars looking for fame and coming out on the media to say they were sexually abused by the new pope, some 40 or 30 years ago. You know what I mean. The church does not need to be the victim of a failing society.
First Give power back to men and build strong families before getting into serious businesses such as having an american Pope.
I prefer an african as Pope.

Like they say,
"Abstinence makes the Church grow fondlers."
The sexual scandals extend all the way to the Vatican. This is the culture of the Catholic church today.

With a pro-gay president, no- one wants another high authority who could be soft on this issue.

'Thou shalt not covet' is a commandment.

If you've broken that commandment then you are in no position to lecture on any of the other values espoused in the bible.

The Catholic church is obsolete so is the pope. More people are leaving the church everyday. The only priests they can find these days to take the job are pedophiles and gays. Now that people are learning the truth that man created GOD to control them, there's little future for the Vatican.

The Church is the refuge for hundreds of millions of people accross south and Central Asia, Africa, south and Central America, many parts of Europe and North America,it can hence not be seen as obsolete.
What is truth though is any liberal is obsolete because he/she doesn't get it.A Liberal just loves turning things upsideown, not understanding that strong family values will make this country stronger.

"There were also moments when there were stormy waters and headwinds... as if God was sleeping," the pope said in an apparent reference to the multiple scandals that have plagued his reign."
