“Trotted out”, that’s a funny way to put it. Makes me imagine the bishops are stored up in the attic, with dropcloths over them to keep the dust off until it’s time to pick a new pope.
The media repeated this story for the same tired bishops for the last 15 years.
These were supposed to be the bishops last time, same ones, but nobody picked Benedict, one of the few cardinals not chosen by Pope John Paul II.
I’m sure they will be wrong again.
