CARACAS (Reuters) - Late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez may have had a hand in Christ's decision to opt for a Latin American pope, acting President Nicolas Maduro said on Wednesday.

"We know that our commander ascended to the heights and is face-to-face with Christ," Maduro said at a Caracas book fair. "Something influenced the choice of a South American pope, someone new arrived at Christ's side and said to him: 'Well, it seems to us South America's time has come.'"

Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina was elected in a surprise choice to be the new leader of the Roman Catholic Church on Wednesday, the first non-European pope in nearly 1,300 years.

It’s the Holy Spirit’s job not Jesus’ to pick the Pope!

“face-to-face with Christ”

Receiving his judgement.

True but God is a tool user and Chavez was most definitely a tool.

There’s a word for this that has 8 letters and sounds like a fresh steaming ready-made organic fertilizer product, but it’s a word I don’t want to use on Free Republic.

Is everybody in Venezuela crazy? Perhaps they became crazy from living so many years under a lunatic.

I wonder whatever happened to Hugo’s parrot? Maybe he thought it was the Holy Spirit?

He definitely met Christ face-to-face, but it wasn’t to discuss the new Pope.

When asked if he had anything to do with this, Chavez replied:

"Hell no! I'm too busy putting out my own fires."

This is typical behavior of lovers of dictatorial tyrants. They ‘attain divinity’ after they’re dead, supposedly.

Apparently Maduro is loopier than Chavez.

And that pretty hard to do. Hopefully anyone sensible in Venezuela is getting buckled in for a bumpy ride.

I guess you're right...

Reynolds Group Holdings

The Reynolds Metals Company was founded in 1919 as the U.S. Foil Company in Louisville, Kentucky by Richard S. Reynolds, Sr., a nephew of tobacco king R. J. Reynolds

Yes, but after 15 years of Chavez running the country the only thing that could help Venezuela straighten things out is divine intervention

If we should look for any correlation here, I’d look more along the REPENTANCE FOR HUGO angle rather than the AFFIRMING HUGO angle.

Since Chavez was a communist, I sincerely doubt it. All of them are a bunch of Godless heathens.

It’s the Holy Spirit’s job not Jesus’ to pick the Pope!

The Cardinals disagree.

They said it is their job to pick the Pope.

Yes, guides their choice

They stated that that is so, but it is them that vote for the Pope.

It was on a thread earlier today when it was being discussed.

I heard a priest say that it was Holy Spirit that chose the Pope, and the Cardinal’s job to match that choice.
