please, Jesus, NO

Just read and see why I'm apprehensive. Catholics: your leadership is making a mistake if this man becomes pope. Trust me on this. Pray it doesn't happen.

These lines from the NYT article are reassuring:

But interviews with more than a dozen Vatican experts and church officials suggest that forces are lining up against Cardinal Ratzinger - who, at 78, may be judged too old, too uncharismatic and, perhaps most important, too rigid to hold together a polarized church that is a billion people strong.

Some believe the church needs a more moderate man, a less authoritarian leader or one from outside of Europe.

I have to agree with "some."
