I won't be surprised if that shit happens soon. If anything happens, there will always be religions folks who will run around and scream that the dark anti-Christ is going to arrive very soon while months pass and nothing happens.
Yeah, I even thought that Popes won't resign too early. But most people in their old age must resign from their jobs 'cause they may be at risk.. and the Pope will have plenty of time for his wife and kids. Haha! There were some gossips that other races will have a chance, but for me as a Catholic, I'd still prefer a European Pope other than Asian (like myself) or any other. And how I wish, they could choose someone a bit younger so he can serve for more years to come, just like Pope John Paul (my favorite).

Well, he's apparently the first pope to do so in years. But either he resigns from being the pope like a guy quits his dayjob, or he dies, I still say good ridance. I don't care what position he's in, or how close to "God" he is, he's still a pedophile, he's still a quitter, and he's still an embarassement to society
Well, woop-de-fucking-doo. Now the Catholics of the world will have to worship a different old fart. Maybe the next one won't be a pedophile enabling Emperor Palpatine look-a-like. You know I heard a rumor a few years back that they chose such an old man to be the pope because they were fairly certain that the world was going to come to an end real soon anyways.
