On what issues, and in what way?


Someone who isn't completely against contraception. More tolerance on homosexuality. Someone who will address and tackle the abuse issues instead of completely avoiding them and continuing to cover them up.

Wishful thinking.

It'll probably be a case of same crap, different pope.

After all, he's going to get to live a life of luxury like a celebrity while millions of his fellow Catholics struggle to put food on the table.

EDIT: Don't misconstrue this post as being anti-Catholic. I was raised one. I just don't agree with many of the church's principles or the way it is run. There are a lot of Catholics that do a lot of good out there, but the church as a whole is a mess.

It's not like he's taking over for Hefner....he is 76....not really going to live a "life" of luxury...yes...he will get that now...but at what cost?
He no longer has a private life.
He has to live the rest of his life knowing there could be someone out there trying to assassinate him.

Don't get me wrong, I agree the "riches" of the Vatican should be used to help the poor...

And the life of luxury is something I really don't understand. I'm a dyed in the wool agnostic...but I'm familiar with a lot of the different religious texts...and it just seems to me...that if the Jesus dude were around right now...the VATICAN would be the last place he'd be shacking up. He'd likely be in a barracks somewhere in the outskirts of Rome, feeding the hungry, cleansing the sick and sheltering the homeless. He wouldn't be living in a 110 acre palace surrounded by Guardsmen. I also seem to remember there being something against the rich man...something like "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to enter the kingdom"...so...if the Pope lives in a palace and calls himself a messenger of god, while his son (granting that he existed and granting he was indeed the son of god) lived the most humble of lives...doesn't that seem just a tiny bit hypocritical?

Actually it's the complete opposite for this Pope.

He is renowned as having always eschewed any of the luxury and lifestyle. As the Cardinal of Argentina, he's famous for not wanting to get driven around in luxury cars. Rather he's always taken the bus and lived in a very modest apartment. In Buenos Aires it's been common knowledge for years that if you wanted a few minutes of the Cardinal's time, just hop on a city bus.

He's the first Jesuit Pope who's known as an evangelist and who's devoted his life to the poor and social justice. So strong is his conviction in social justice and reform that he's the first pope to ever take the name Francis.

The fact that Pope Francis has chosen a name that has not been used for before may signal that he wants to lead the church into a new chapter, or at least embrace a new tone. In Catholic tradition, St. Francis of Assisi is possibly the greatest patron Saint and who had a mystical vision of Jesus Christ who told him to rebuild his church.

In light of the scandals that have tarnished the Church, from its financial troubles to widespread allegations and cover-up of sex abuse, the name carries special significance and a strong message going forward.

Well..that's a beautiful thought...with a lot of superstition...especially the whole "never been used before" thing...but you see this bolded part here..especially.the BLATANT cover-up and coddling of sex abuse....I'll believe this when I see it. The name is irrelevant...what matters is whether or not this new guy..even after living that kind of life in Argentina, continues to live that life now that he's Pope. My guess is no. He will likely just toe the line like the last one did and nothing will get done.

He's a Jesuit so he won't be anti-science, will believe in charity and humility, and will probably preach about doing good works.

On the flip side, he'll be strongly anti-abortion, anti-homosexuality, and will generally be regressive in most aspects of social policy. All in all, not the worst they could have done.

The biggest issue will be that he's already 76 and has one lung so it'll be a race to see who gets replaced first, him or Obama.
