Well, since a couple of minutes we have a new pope. His name is Joseph Ratzinger, a German cardinal. He’ll be named Benedict the 16th.
Being a Roman Catholic myself, I have no reason to be happy about this. Ratzinger is said to be very conservative, very against gays and in general: bad news. Much worse than John Paul the 2nd.
