Except, like, way worse.
Here's some cool facts about the new pope:
He wrote a letter of advice to U.S. bishops on denying communion to politicians who support abortion rights!
He publicly cautioned Europe against admitting Turkey to the European Union and wrote a letter to bishops around the world stating that the continent is essentially Christian in nature!
He was active in stamping out liberation theology, with its emphasis on grass-roots activism to fight poverty!
He once called homosexuality a tendency toward "intrinsic moral evil" and dismissed the uproar over priestly pedophilia in the United States as a "planned campaign" against the church!
He opposes contraception and the use of condoms to combat HIV/AIDS!
He advocates a diminished role for women in the Church and has called for mandatory celibacy for priests!
He was a member of the Hitler Youth!
Clearly the Catholic Church is begging for irrelevancy, though I'm not sure why.
