To say that he was the one choosen by the Holy Spirit seems extremely unlikely to me.

Your comment seems to contradict his actions. Please provide some justification for your misgivings. Thank you.

I think he is too nice of a person to be elected Pope. We need a tough, bossy person who will impose their will on others, especially dissadent priests and religious. A Thomas Becket sort of personality. Someone who will not be afraid to excommunicate, early and often (and I mean have the ceremony televised in HD, not the automatic excommunication which few people know about). Someone who will overturn the tables of the moneychangers in the temple.

How many sould are being lost because previous Popes have been afraid to confront people below them? They are the boss! And it is not a sin to be forceful and angry!

Anyway, we will agree to disagree.
