    Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, of Argentina, named Pope.

    VATICAN CITY (AP) -- Argentine Jorge Bergoglio has been elected pope, the first ever from the Americas and the first from outside Europe in more than a millennium. He chose the name Pope Francis.

    I'm glad he went with Francis, Hor-hay sounds bad.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I was hoping he would have chosen Peter II. But in any case, they revealed that he is a liberal .. So nothing within the catholic church will change.

    I love my God, my country, my flag, and my troops ....

    He's a liberal on "social justice" issues - but not on things like contraception, homosexuality, etc.

    Thank you.



    On another note, I just knew the new Pope would be Catholic. I'm wanting to laugh at some of the liberals who are actually upset that he's a social conservative. I'm like "Really?"

    I'm hoping he might try to open a door to allow priests to get married.

    Don't worry. He is so against gay marriage and adoption. Oh, the horror.


    I'm trying to focus on the good though.

    At least we'll have a ready response when he does his inevitable critique of the US military:
    --Odysseus
    Sic Hacer Pace, Para Bellum.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Apparently the first two they tried caught fire, the third one was a charm.
