Papa Benedetto XVI

Elevated to the Papacy 19 April 2005.

German.

It took me thirty years to come to grips with the concept of a Japanese car (as opposed to thje natural order of things - an Italian car).

At least five years to come to grips with the concept of a Polish Pope (as opposed to the natural order of things - an Italian Pope).

Now a German is in the Vatican and he speaks Italian with a pretty heavy German accent.

How long?

Things take less time these days, don't you find? I'll be alright with this in a month.

In that month, I think I shall read some Benedetto XVI stuff - he believes in objective truth, as I do. He is a massive fan of Thomas More, as I am not. He has weighed in on Turkey in the EU - not a good thing in his view, and on immigration, which he wonders about, wondering straight up why leaving your culture, history and home can possibly be a good thing - wich is a very big deal for wogs, seeing as it goes to the heart of being a wog.

There sure is some meat for me, a proud Roman Catholic, if utterly non-observant all the time except when I am in Italy, and a politics junkie.

Viva Papa.

And he is the Pope, alright? Not a political candidate. You cannot lobby him and expect him to change his views about stuff. You cannot be rational and disappointed in him.

Benedetto - you said it, Pope! ya said it well.
