Pope Benedict XVI

The Catholic church has played it safe and named Joseph Ratzinger the 265th Pontiff. Ratzinger has warned against Europe's secular slide, but may not appeal to the vast majority of Catholics who aren't European. He also recently turned 78, more thatn 19 years older than John Paul II was on his first day as Pope.

Cardinal Ratzinger was a favored candidate, the strongest non-Italian in the field. I believe, however, that the Church would have done itself good to name a hard-liner like Giacomo Biffi to the Papacy if they were going to stick with a European. To Quote Biffi:
"Europe will either become Christian again or it will become Muslim. The vast majority of Muslims are coming here determined to remain outside our humanity."
A man who understands the real dangers of the 21st Century.

That same year Biffi also said that he believed the Antichrist was alive and would soon rise to prominence.

Biffi told a conference meeting in Bologna that the Antichrist was a prominent philanthropist who advocated causes like human rights, the environment and ecumenicism.

Biffi said that this man (who he never identified) had a "fascinating personality" and espoused causes like vegetarianism, pacifism, environmentalism and animal rights.

George Soros? Another reason to kill this traitor to the Jewish race.
Biffi added that this Antichrist would be a Bible expert who would discard its truths to prosletyze for "vague and fashionable spiritual values."
John Shelby Spong perhaps?
