Well, you did say that the road to hell was from the bad things that come out of our mouths. I figure that also means digital mouths.

I apologize for over reacting.

The pope this time around is an odd bird and he has made me uneasy from the outset, including the unusual way he came into office. So many are coming into leadership out if nowhere, and I generally suspect some behind the scenes billionaire oligarch pulling the strings.

To: Mamzelle
An alternative narrative is that Bergoglio and Ratzinger were running neck-and-neck in the 2005 Conclave until Bergoglio gave a short but impassioned speech asking the Cardinal to vote for Ratzinger. Then when Ratzinger abdicated this year, many completed the do-si-do and said "Bene! It's Bergoglio's turn."

I'd like to turn down the heat-pumps in this thread, not fire them up. There's always been considerable mutual amity between you and me, Mamzelle. I nurture the hope that nothing has injured that good will.
