    This will eventually be answered, but I wonder if he named himself Francis I or if the media is just calling him that. I remember reading that Pope John Paul I chose a name including the “I” and that this was a precedent.

    Article here (and I’m sure a million other places):

    Anyway, it looks like Pope Francis is already 76, so it’s entirely possible that he may not preside over the Church for any longer than Pope Benedict XVI did.

    Well, the first photo of him I saw was kind of far away and taken with a telephoto lens. My first thought was “He looks like Paul Shaffer”.
    Anywho, saw this paragraph from a news story on Yahoo.

    “Bergoglio was archbishop of Buenos Aires, but stepped down last year. In 2010, he said allowing gay couples to adopt is a form of discrimination against children.”

    so much for reforms.

    Walker; while I have utmost respect for you and how you handle being owner/administrator, it pays to have a sense of humor. In 2013 a bunch of very old men in Rome play politics under the rubric of “divine intervention” and choose a Pope with all the attendant rite and ritual and pomp and circumstance. Forget about all the other issues the Church faces and it is still a bit farcical. No more farcical than the over-the-top attention the press and media gave to the Carnival Cruise ship being towed into port but that proves the point-yes the media cater to the masses rather than what is truly important. Nothing titillates the public like a bunch of people being stuck on a ship with shit rolling down the halls. The tail wags the dog. Whatever happened to the Fourth Estate. Well, it died, intestate. Without a will, Walker. Forgive the puns.

    According to some, this pope could be the last pope…

    I’m sure I could google this, but why is the pope called another name? Pope George sounds better then Francis.

    Snarf doesn’t wear skinny jeans, but he did buy me a shot of Goldschläger recently.
