As a Catholic, I actually look sideways at people who hate on gays and people who are different. Why? JESUS HIMSELF SAID "Love one another as I love you."

God is LOVE. God loves all of His creations, so it's so contradictory to see a person of God hating on gay people.

I personally am not a fan of abortion, but I won't go picketing. I myself wouldn't abort a baby if I got pregnant, but I won't condemn women who do because they're probably in a bad place in life and they need LOVE and understanding, not hate and rejection.

I hope the new pope is a little less tightassed about gay rights and condoms.
That's an attitude I wish the next pope would share! Unfortunately, I think it will take some time before we get there.

I want an African Pope, just to see how well Racism and Religion really holds together.
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?

Also is it African specifically or any man who self identifies and/or is perceived by others as other then European?

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

Re: The Pope

It would be nice to see a non-caucasian pope but I don't think the Vatican is ready for much change yet. I do hope we will see a move towards a less rigid stance on the condom issue when the new pope is elected.

Would send a hell of a message to all those Catholics in Africa who got HIV because of the ridiculous doctrine when the new pope suddenly is saying "Yeah, maybe you should have used condoms all along. We were not quite correct on that issue. (Next time don't listen to us!)"

At least the Vatican would take a step towards living in the real world.

So Eastern Europe, I guess many might turn Orthodox. What I am seeing in America are young Catholic Priest who are not the big brother of the hero protagonist white ethnic cop like they are on the cop show procedurals. So an entire generation of Catholics, like the ones who elected President Obama, have had a Priest from Africa, Latin America or the Philippines who immigrated under an R (religious) or H (work) visa.

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.

I am guessing an Italian "Latino" will cause no hair pulling in Poland.
