Seems like quite a few people in blogsphere have been playing celebrity lookie-likeys with the new Pope. My personal favourites are Daily Blatt and Pharyngula. Personally I think I've spotted an alarming similarity between Cardinal Ratzinger and Micheal Howard. I'll try and post the piccies up (if I can remember how) and give everyone a good laugh. They have some similarities in terms of how much I trust them and how open minded they are about cultural differences.
Anyway I could write a couple of essays on the potential ramifications of another fundamentalist Pope. I could write about the potential impact on women's rights, condoms and AIDs, the gay community and the third world. Frankly though, what do you expect from a group of people who believe in all seriousness that a man rose from the dead, raised the dead, cured the blind and crippled, transubstantiated water into wine, walked on water,... The one about father christmas coming down the chimney is more believable. So rather than try and argue with them, why not sign up to the National Secularist Society?
