    I could see myself switching and becoming Catholic because of the new Pope. He is an inspiration.

    Churches do far more to help people than those "preachers" who don't go to church and tell others they have to help others while they sit watching.

    It is nice the Pope is so humble and talks about the poor. Did the Vatican know what they were getting when they elected this guy? He seems............ so saintly, like Jesus.. I mean literally this guy is what I would picture Jesus being like. It is very refreshing.

    Actually a true form of capitalism would be the European soccer league, those teams that are not competitive are bounced out of the Premier division and relegated to a lower division, just as Khan's Fulham soccer teams was this year. The NFL is a cartel, like our government just how the 1% want it, profits flow to them not to the common folk.

    The new Pope is awesome. He makes me want to get out and help people even though I am a protestant.
