    And they're taking their time announcing who it is.

    Hoping for the American Timothy Dolan!

    Typically after the bells ring (after white smoke emerges), its within 30-45 mins that the new Pope comes out onto the balcony.

    A Jesuit is better than nothing, but the guy is 76. You'd think they would have learned their lesson with Benedict.

    Don't blame me, I voted for Timothy Dolan.

    Now the fun ensues; it's only a matter of time before he makes a controversial statement (which will immediately become true).

    I was hoping for Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson from Ghana.

    Pope Kodwo sounds rather cool. :cool:

    The joke here is that finally they elected a navy guy. Why? He's from the Jesuit order and they are often called God's Marines which is fitting if you're going to wear the shoes of the Fisherman.

    Today must be a slow news day (at least in the UK).

    The fact that the new pope is saying prayers and celebrating mass is NEWS??? Oy vey... :smile:

    The new pope is 76 raising the possibility that he too will retire and there will be 3 living popes. Keep it up and they'll have a minyan.
