This really sucks. With all of the problems the church has it needed to elect a liberal pope who was ready to make some changes. Instead they elect a 79 year old german who isnt going to change anything. Germany isnt even a catholic nation. Elect a Latin American pope, where the people of the church are found. Or a Nigerian pope that can recruit new members to the church. This pope is going to leave everything the same, and people are going to become disinfranchised and leave the church. This is a terrible move.
