I thought he was a bad choice for pope when he was selected and I haven't seen a thing he's done yet to make me change my mind.

Oh yes, totally agreed.
I was (searching for the right word, the dic gives me more than I need *lol*) baffled (?) (what would be the right word if something amazes you but in the sense of thinking it's creepy?) by the reactions of all the people when he was announced as pope. I mean...wtf??? It was like a pop star hysteria. Strange thing.
And reintruducing the mass in latin and all such things, like you said, back to the 1500's.

I think a lot of that was because there hadn't been a new pope in so long. For some people, Pope John Paul was the only pope they ever knew.

Yes, that's possible.
And my guess is, that this is also a reason, they voted for someone in Ratzingers age.
They (the political powers in the vatican) wouldn't want another pope that reigned for so long.

This really wasn't unexpected. A good number of older Catholics prefer it as it is what they grew up with.

"Vatican 'meddling' as Italian minister quits"

On the positive side, look at this quote from the article:

Quote
"The country is in pieces," he said. "There is lazy administration and a shirking of responsibility."

He cited the rubbish crisis in Naples and deplored the policy on gay rights.

One city with a trash problem and a less-than-perfect policy on gay rights, and the country is in pieces.  Cheesy  Come pay us a visit, Cardinal, I think you need a lesson on what a country falling to pieces really looks like.

Dude, he looks like Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars. It's even better if you see pictures of them side by side.

Maybe his Dark Side powers will give him extra longevity.

You know, I put one of those pictures on an earlier thread.  I tried to find it but the pic was gone.

*hunts for a new pic*

Try this one out.

No, it just means that you are reasonably sane and know what's going on in the world.

It is, isn't it.  I had nightmares after I first saw it.

That and the fact, too, that JP2 was "my" pope for pretty much my entire life and NOBODY can ever take his place! Wink
