  Why would I not like that?  It's a heartwarming victory to gain your approval, Robbie, although the swing of the pendulum is always to be expected.  Just like a woman, in fact!

I'd forgotten about the fact that he's a Jesuit, so it's really quite interesting that he was elected in the first place - the first Jesuit Pope.

Am I not correct in remembering that historically the Jesuits were effectively the Pope's unofficial army?

Were they not also used for conversions and for the acquisitions of overseas territory? Certain parts of Japan and Goa in India spring to mind.

Okay to say what's been plastered over the papers since he was named pope:
  • As Cardinal in Buenos Aires he lived in a small nondescript flat where he looked after himself
  • Used public transport
  • Yes has to now accept certain thing because of security and also too many things the popes expected to do to be able to do all his own chores
  • Wanted to go spend time with the people so yep pissed off his security team by taking a wander the morning after he was elected
  • Yes the Catholic church does have a lot of wealth that could be sold off etc. But do you think the Catholic church doesn't do anything charitable? Across the globe the Catholic church is involved in charitable work from medical help in Africa for Aids victims to food banks in Britain and in other European countries now feeling the pinch from the current economic crisis. It runs childrens clubs and helps abused women and families. Yes there's corruption but the Catholic church does actually spend money on helping people already. Could it do more? There's always more to be done. But not every member of the Catholic church is corrupt or a pervert.

    And I'm not even Catholic!!

The Pope is an avid a fan of San Lorenzo, one of Argentina’s top clubs, of which he is a member.

Why is there no conspiracy thread on MW?
At long last I read The Da Vinci Code a couple of weeks ago.  I couldn't put it down.  It really made me think.  Now I'm about to read The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail.

  It's a good story, is all. For a historical take on the Mary/Christ  antecedents in the Great Goddess/fertility/lunar/vegetative  development of religion try The  Great Goddess, reverence of the divine feminine by Jean Markales. It really does open your mind about how religion works at the deepest levels of the psyche.

Yes it is an interesting book because it touches on Mary Magdalene you will find in other religions many have females at the heart of them. Is it not funny that so many religions give women the brush off yet many have given a great deal to them.
