After unfocused meetings, cardinals to vote for pope next week | National Catholic Reporter
Not me. I declined nomination due to sanity and level-headedness. Atheism might have had a hand in my declination, too.
My bet: it'll be one of 115 men, he will be very conservative and orthodox, he will wear red shoes and a pointy hat, the church will make no progress under his guidance on matters like homosexuality, ordination of women, married priests, contraception, divorce, and remarriage after divorce, and it will continue to lose membership. The church equates modernization with moral decay, as Coldstream often reminds us, because it knows that full modernization would render it largely irrelevant, so that's not going to happen. Nothing will change.
I doubt any of the old boys voting DO know better, the College of Cardinals has been carefully stacked by the last two Popes with very orthodox conservatives. The last Pope who could reasonably be called progressive was John XXIII, and that was 50 years ago.
