The new Pope just looks like a Pope.


Yup. White and old. Way to buck the trend, cardinals.

A black Jewish lesbian pedophile was prolly the way to go.

I heard Sue was available but she didn't scout well at holding giant poles.

you know for all the PR hits the Catholic Church has been taking recently you would think they'd know better to replace a former Hitler Youth with a guy who openly supported brutal Argentine dictator Jorge Rafael Videla

Please stick to bad jokes. Politics/social commentary, is not your strong point.

Facts seem to elude your grasp(along with logic, humor and vagina).

I'm not surprised that they haven't covered Argentina in the late 70s yet in your Middle School history class yet

It's not really that they controlled it, but a large portion of the Argentine population is Italian, so Mussolini and his agents exported fascist ideals through the country during his reign/ They appropriated the Italian version of fascism and combined with Catholicism whereas European fascism was mostly secular. After WWII it became a safe haven for Nazi war criminals like Adolf Eichmann.

Around this same time, quite a few dictators cycled through in Argentina. Peron, anyone? ;) Leave it to BN to talk about political history of another country on a baseball site.

For all the love that some South American dictators get from segments of American society, I think you won't hear much about that.

yeah I went on a date with a Chilean in college and I was like "oh I'm really sorry about Pinochet ruining your country" but her family was really rich and her parents cried the day he died. definitely did not get any sugar that night.
