So is there an actual group of Catholics who have not already left for other reasons that you expect to walk if an African is at their head?
Plenty. If they choose an African, I'll buy popcorn and read all comments of those pissed off "good Catholic" Poles on all available Polish news portals. Sure it could be a minority from the whole group, but it would be a very vocal minority. Watching their heads steam and smoke would be a lot of fun
So Eastern Europe, I guess many might turn Orthodox.
I highly doubt that. Catholicism is too deeply ingrained into Polish culture to be eradicated by a "wrong" pope. They'd rather go lamenting that he's not another "beloved John Paul II", but abandoning their faith? No, it wouldn't happen.
