http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tm...=21&u=/nm/20050202/wl_nm/pope_succession_dc_2 Amazing the man hasnt died yet and the media is already all over who will follow him as Pope. it seems to be all politics going on too. I think the most telling part of the article is the following: If Liberal Catholics get control of the Pontiff's seat I think you can pretty much kiss the influence of Catholicism goodbye. Liberals dont seem to understand that you cant determine truth through a Democratic vote. I mean I dont agree that the Catholic Church teaches the truth on anything but its just the whole concept about it. God isn't going to make the World Flat just because people vote it flat. But like i was saying if liberals take control of the Catholic Church and start allowing things like gay marriages you will see major schism.
