thoughts on bergoglio's odd new cardinals

thoughts on bergoglio's odd new cardinals

Diversity. One of the cardinal virtues? Not that I recall..

Did I miss something? I didn't notice any cardinals from the middle east where muslims are literally killing the Church. Why is that?... since at least one Catholic commentator pointed out that the new cardinals come from countries where the Church is suffering...

My guess as to how this will affect the next papal conclave... many of these new cardinals come from countries with small catholic populations... and we keep hearing about how the German church is funding other Catholic communities around the world... it wouldn't take a whole lot of deutsch-marks to gain a whole lot of influence with these new cardinals... maximum bang for the buck (er... deutsch-mark)...

Ethiopia, yes!... sub-saharan Africa... NO!... deal with it... or you can talk to Kasper if you have any further questions on this topic...

Muslim countries... how many cardinals from muslim dominated countries... like say Turkey or Pakistan... or even Saudi Arabia... surely they must have some Catholics in Saudi Arabia... if not, why not?... Lampedusa is covered... so I guess that is sort of like a muslim mini-country... see bergoglio didn't forget the muslims after all...

... and of course bergoglio gets to show off how "non-traditional" he is... they used to call that sort of thing "anti-Catholic"... but times change...
