Wow, that's possibly the most frightening picture I've ever seen of a pope... ::shudders::

I think it might might mean that he has a sense of humor, (I have to admit that up to now I had not considered that possibility). Maybe he is even human, who knows?

For now I'd be prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Just an aside about having been in the hitler youth:

In the 1960's or so there used to be a standing joke in Austria (which had been enthusiastically annexed by germany at some stage [after all, Uncle Adolf was originally Austrian rather than German]) which went a bit like this.

Q: What's the difference between a man who says he was a nazi and a man who sais he was not a nazi?

A: The man who said he was a nazi is an honest man!

Just something to think about. It is so easy to judge someone for something that was done in a particular set of circumstances. But no-one knows how we ourselves would have acted in the same circumstances.

You folks are scarin' =D>

Well, at least we know he thinks gay marriages are "wicked..."

Seems like the gay marriage proponents in Spain were right on the ball in terms of presenting a challenge to his Holyness' infallible authority... :thefinger:

i've seen a new trend on teh intarweb these days, what i've deemed "one trick ponies." someone gets a hold of a single fact (schools can give the information they have on you to recruiters, the Pope was in Hitler Youth, etc) and bring it up at every relevant opportunity. i'm not blaming anyone here, no, i've just seen "OMFG TEH POPMAN IS A NAZII!!11!!!" all over the internet.

he's too conservative for my liking, but i imagine that comes with the job of being Pope. he's pretty up in years, though, and i think that's what a lot of the papal council or whatever had in mind when they picked him. John Paul II had a really long run as the pope, they don't want that again so soon.

but Wikipedia says he's an accomplished pianist, so he can't be THAT bad. anyone who plays the piano is OK by me. :-)

Here's another computer nerd tendencies:

char ans;
cout << "Did you understand the l33t (Y/N)?";
cin >> ans;
if (ans == Y)
{ cout << "joo are teh nerd!" }
{ cout << "all your base are belong to me"; }
//Someone find the mistake in this code...if you can!

And of course...

01001001 01101011011011100110111101110111 011000100110100101101110011000010111001001111001 011101000110111101101111
