Dennis Rodman is on his way to Rome to campaign on his behalf.

I wish I was making that up.

Maybe Jeremy Irons was elected?

After all, he knows the politics of the Vatican and how to handle scandals.

Just kidding. Bad joke.

It's an Argentinian - the archbishop of Buenos Aires.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio - or Pope Francisco/Francis I as I heard. The first Jesuit.

He looks humble and nervous. Better impression than Benedict XVI who seemed too thrilled to say he dreaded being elected.

Con - has the same old views on abortion and homosexuality. Criticized Argentina allowing same sex marriage.

Pro - he took public transportation as archbishop and supposedly cooked his own meals.

Does anyone expect much to change? I sure don't.

This church is only growing in places where gay rights do not exist.

There will be no married priest anytime soon. With married priests comes children up the ying yang, remember no birth control.
Who supports these priests' children? And then there is divorce, child support??

what is positive, i suppose, is that this pope cares about the poor.

which is very unusual for conservatives.

as for SSM and abortion and vaginas, did we expect anything different?

I believe a Pope cares about the poor when he starts selling off the valuables in the Vatican to go to charity

I look forward to saying "Lighten up, Francis" in the coming years.

CBS News papal consultant Monsignor Anthony Figueiredo said Bergoglio “did not want to be pope.”

“This man did not expect to be pope,” Figueiredo said, adding that Bergoglio’s selection is an “incredibly courageous choice.”

The new pope, who had a lung removed when he was a teenager due to a lung infection, reportedly got the second most votes after Joseph Ratzinger in the 2005 papal election to replace Pope John Paul II. Bergoglio is the first Jesuit to become pontiff.

CBS News reports that Bergoglio is not a favorite of the Vatican curia.

“This man now has a clear mandate from 115 cardinals to come in and clear out the curia,” Monsignor Figueiredo said.

He didn't want to be Pope? Would be funny if we'll get a scene like from the movie "Habemus Papam" with the newly elected Pope just running away and hiding

Seriously, I wouldn't get my hopes up about reforms and stuff, won't happen.

Disappointed given some of the other options out there, but at least it's something sorta fresh and new.

At least going to give the guy a shot for a few years.
