    This post isn't about Pope Benedict, it's about Pope John II. Since we don't have too many pope threads, I thought I'd put this here. This one surprised me

    I loved it when the guy asked what position he played and the priests responded "Any position he wants!"

    I Father Dougal McGuire. Father Ted is one of the best comedy shows ever made, it was very sad when Dermot Morgan died unexpectedly and they had to stop making it. At least they went out on a high.

    Will the Pope have any input in his successor (ie:suggesting someone, casting a vote, etc.)?
    Because of his age (over 80) he will not be in the Conclave. I 'spect the cardinals will pick someone of their own.

    Stephen Colbert has come out strongly against Cardinal Marc Ouellet to replace Pope Benedict, who resigned from the papacy Monday. The TV satirist's reason? He's Canadian.

    "Cardinal Marc Ouellet is also a contender with only one major weakness: he is a Canadian," Colbert said on his late-night show Monday. "The pope cannot be polite. 'Sorry, but I think God might not want you to use a condom, eh,' won't work."

    Colbert also objected to Ouellet on the grounds that the pope's iconic staff shouldn't change. "Who wants a pope whose staff looks like this?" he said, showing a photoshopped image of Ouellet dressed in pope robes and holding a Team Canada hockey stick.

    Ouellet, No. 3 at the Vatican, is the head of the Vatican's office for bishops and widely believed to be among the top contenders to replace Pope Benedict.
    It is my understanding that Colbert is a devout Catholic himself; who best to poke fun at the church?

    Ouellet, sounds impressive. Will have to do some research.
