- Pope Francis

If there is a single character trait that leftists lack utterly, it's humility. Theirs is the cult of the ego; the elevation of the common reactions to personal insecurity, as the unspoken dogma of an entire belief system. I don't know much about Pope Francis yet, but he clearly possesses humility. So he will probably be making all the right enemies.

As John Paul II was the anti communist leader for Eastern Europe, I pray that Francis I will have a similar effect on the political imbalance in South America and for all Latin Americans.
The Pope in the 21st century must follow precedence and like JPII he must publicly stand against Kirchner, Morales, The Chavistas and the cartels of Mexico.
What is interesting is if this Pope takes a hometown position on the Falklands as we are assured Cristina Kirchner will press the issue.

The first Latin Pope - likely the result of an appeal by the moderates, whose last choice would be an ass kicker.

one need not kick ass to set examples, however...
Not a Latin Pope. A Jesuit Pope.

While the French Press finds this amuzing, Maduro is the high priest of the Chavez Cult. Look for this brutish oaf to make more Saintly comparisons of his mentor in weeks to come.
This will not go unnoticed by a Jesuit Pope.
I went to a LaSalle School. You can only joke around long enough until you get hauled into detention or get assigned some form of manual labor as penance for potentially insulting the hierarchy.
I don't expect Francis I to be a softy, because that is the way the Media wants us to believe him to be.

Agreed. Jesuits see through bullshit and broker fools poorly.

I went to a Christian Brothers High School and my father did College and Law School at Fordham. Jesuit Pope is a good thing, but the "First Latin Pope" thing makes me suspicious knowing that liberation theology got its start in Rio de Janeiro
