Yes amh. People underestimate the power of the pope in this country. In catholic developing countries he is basically the number one influence and people hang on.his every word. I amongst filipinos and they basically did what ever he said and looked to him for direction in life. He will have immense influence over south America.


I've looked for news from there, I'm imagining immense crowds and celebrations. A bit emotional for me at the moment. I was thinking of mum last week and this sort of felt like a message from her...sounds soft I know

He really should have been Pope Malvinas. That would have been proper cool.

I hope he brings comfort and hope to those who need it. I hope he STFU about anything not directly related to his specific religion.

I fancied a go at being Pope but it wasn't advertised in the Job Centre - I reckon I'd be pretty good at it - I can be as dogmatic as the next man if I'm pushed ^_^

So many of the people who criticised Paley for his attitude to Muslims are on this thread having a pop at Catholics. At least Paley knew something about Islam.

The Catholic church is hardly a difficult target, or have you not been following the news?

May I ask which word?

Good luck to the new pope. It's not my thing but it's one role that could be a real force for good in the right hands.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I've been thinking about the new Pope - and all the scandals confronting him. Given that he's an Argentine and a man of God I reckon his no. 1 priority should be to investigate the Maradonna "hand of God" scandal - nothing could be of more urgency IMO!

yes let's go easy on the roman catholic church: on of the reasons it's an easy target is that it seserves to be. I think you'll find all religions and the baggage they carry are discussed on here: ritual circimcision for insdtancebeing a recent topic.

This beats the lot. Bradford Catholic priest is in court accused of making sexual advances on a young woman. His defence is that he had no need to give in to lustful temptation because he had a fulfilling sexual relationship with his wife(!!) who he had secretly married ten years ago.

All religion is an easy target. Just like fairies at the bottom of the garden.
