WTG Hugo. He hit his goal of going down in history as another Bolivar.As usual, you are right.
From the LA Times, quote:
"Meanwhile, Nicolas Maduro, the interim president of Venezuela, credited Chavez for Bergoglio's election.
'Chavez had some influence in this naming a South American pope,' Maduro said in an interview over state television in Caracas, the capital. 'A new hand arrived [in heaven], and Christ told him, South America's moment has arrived.'"
Yeah man. Mater and pater, yin yang, as above so below, good and evil, light and darkness, regular and unleaded . The Eucharist is the marriage of male and female. In this case God represented by the male Priest and the female Church.The spirit is male the matter is female. The church is built of matter. mater/mother.
Death squads! I can't believe it! Holy material church! That's just anti-catholic racist bigotry. They would never do bad stuff.
Canada’s Marc Ouellet almost became pope
By Matthew Fisher, Postmedia NewsMarch 15, 2013
VATICAN CITY – Marc Ouellet of Canada almost became the Roman Catholic Church’s first pontiff from the New World before he asked his backers to switch their support to the eventual winner, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina, according to several media reports.
That has led to speculation Ouellet is now in line for a powerful new job at the Vatican under the new pope, who has named himself Pope Francis.
Ouellet, the 68-year-old prelate from northwestern Quebec, was neck-and-neck with Cardinal Angelo Scola of Italy after the first round of voting by fellow cardinal-electors Tuesday, with the eventual winner, Bergoglio, a strong third, according to reports in several Italian and American newspapers Friday.
Scola could not gain any more votes Wednesday morning after many cardinals apparently decided they did not want a Vatican insider presiding over the Holy See. After that, the media reports claim, it became a two-race between Ouellet and Bergoglio. The Argentinian, unlike Ouellet, Scola and Brazil’s Cardinal Odilo Scherer, had seldom been mentioned as one of the favourites before the papal conclave to choose a leader began.
Ouellet had been touted as a potential compromise candidate if Scola or Scherer faltered, but as it turned out, the cardinals decided the 76-year-old Argentinian Jesuit was an even better compromise candidate. Bergoglio narrowed the gap with Ouellet by picking up more votes Wednesday morning from Scola’s backers than Ouellet did.
Ouellet was “very close” to Bergoglio in the vote count “through the first three rounds,” Il Sole 24 Ore reported. “After that he threw his support to Bergoglio, saying that they had had the same experience in Latin America so they were similar.”
La Repubblica reported more or less the same story about the voting trends, stating Ouellet got strong support early on and then asked cardinals who backed him to throw their support to Bergoglio.
In backing Francis and bringing his votes along with him, Ouellet did what the Argentinian was said to have done eight years ago when Benedict was elected pope. Lying second after three rounds of voting at that conclave, then Cardinal Bergoglio asked his backers to join him in voting for the German cardinal.

Oaths of secrecy?
More puffs of smoke?
Cults of personality?
Check the dates eh.
Monroe Doctrine 1823
British invasion 1833
therefore, it was after the Doctrine
Kinda funny in that I recall certain right wingers in the 1960s saying Castro's rise to power came as a result of Russian interference and therefore violative of Monroe Doctrine. Yet these critics were nowhere to be found when the subject of the Malvinas came up.
I can't see much of a change in this pope, really, although he seems more apt to be popular than the last putz, er pontiff I mean.
Red-herring. Did that make him popular with Catholics?Benedict is widely acknowledged to have been the greatest theologian in the Papacy since Gregory the Great (who lived in the 6th Century).
Ad hominem. And perhaps you should try discussing my point rather than hopping on the fallacious-argument wagon.Maybe you should read one of his books before putzing around in your troll outfit, LG.
