This soon to be retired pontiff is deeply conservative, who has been overshadowed by sexual abuse scandals. Pope Benedict, 85, leaves his post with a checkered reputation after a papacy that was at times both conservative and divisive.
According to media reports his likely successor could be Cardinal Angelo Scola, archbishop of Milan, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, archbishop of Vienna , or Cardinal Marc Ouellet, the Canadian head of the Vatican’s office for bishops.
Candidates must have no opinion on American’s Foreign Policy, the coming economic collapse, or views that would conflict with the Catholic Doctrine. The coming pontiff must reflect the Church’s opinion on abortion, contraceptives, starvation in Africa, Global warming, melting of the ice caps, women in the priesthood, and ignore the blatant corruption coming from the American Tele evangelists, including the child abuse scandals that have rocked the papacy in recent times.
