I think one of the reasons he was elected was to be a...what was the term for it...ahh yes, 'transitional' Pope. He's 78 or 79 years old, and I think thats what they wanted: Someone who's not going to last very long.

I thinks its just wrong to go around saying other religions are wrong. And hes not the person I wouldve gone for if I could vote. Just glad he doesnt rule a country.

In that truth link, That part about him joining the Hitler youth wasn't completely true. He was forced to join, then he ran away and joined the semenary, and then they tried to get him to join again and he deserted again i believe. Though he is still not who I would have voted for if I could vote for pope.

I donna know maybe it has something to do with the phrase with age comes wisdom but maybe it has to do with an age requirement

I mean country as in has an army. We've all seen what a religious leader can do with a fanatical army.

I'm an Atheist, but I think I know why: Old popes are popes with lots of experience behind them. Second reason: You have to be a cardinal to become a canidate for being And it takes a while to become a cardinal!
If you think about it, the popes aren't very old. Anybody above the age of 80 can't be pope.

i agree coz the Pope must represent peace to everyone not just christians, and his job(like every religion man) is to help people understand each others not to divide them.
