A New Pope

Pope Benedict XVI was elected earlier today. I can’t say it’s surprising they voted for Cardinal Ratzinger as he was easily the most well known of the cardinals. My initial impressions of the man aren’t good. He’s conservative and rigid, but hearing commentary through the day gives me pause for thought. I have heard that the media vilified him wrongly, so his Papacy may not be as clear-cut as people think.
