No. Because Pope Benedict is over 80 years old, he is not a voting member of the College of Cardinals.
The fix is in. ACORN will make certain that the next Pope is gay.
Thanks for your answers, FRiends.
Being an outsider, I have to seek guidance on this.
With time to reflect, do you think the conclave would be more inclined toward a younger Pope having a longer tenure or an older Pope having a shorter one? (Recognizing, of course, that God can call any of us home at any time.)
And, the question already asked about the conclave, is there a group(s) within the church known for their spirituality who could give insight into the actual needs of the church?
