No, from what I've heard and read about him, he's way too conservative.

I hope he doesn't do much as a pope - just wave from his balcony at Easter etc

What do they do except wave from the balcony and kiss the floor?

I couldnt really care less if I'm honest.

Women's tennis sucks.

In a nutshell, no, he's too conservative. Then again what can you expect. The church is outdated as a concept anyway, in my opinion.

He seems to be nice and to believe strongly in what he says,moreover he waited all his life to be Pope(he elected John Paul 1 and John Paul 2)so i kinda like him even if i'm not catholic

Give him a chance, that's why I voted unsure.

I am kind of subjective and unreasonable , though I know very little about him, he looks less friendly than John Paul II.

Good answer, my friend!
I say....Pope Shmope! Course....I'm a bit of a heathen so......
If they weren't so busy molesting children - perhaps I'd be more respectful.

I like.

I'm glad the Cardinals didnt cave & appoint a soppy liberal, but I'd rather the Vatican abandoned its nonsensical stand on contraception.

Well, I mean, I like men Not allowed by the Pope, is it? I am sure he wouldn't respect me and I surely don't respect someone who doesn't respect me

Also, in a way, popes are mass murderers. I know I am not having a mild view on this

I hear ya!
I realize that popes do good things for the less fortunate - however I can't respect someone who is so close-minded.
