      Baba Adeboye:
      NO HOPE IN DOPE.That is poetic!
      The racist take by the Pope's brother reminds again of the glass ceilings for black folks in some of these institutions.
      Dont forget sir that tbe Pope who just resigned was a Nazist and it just shows the brothers share other beliefs apart from Christianity.
      And talking about 'experience',the Pope's brother may be saying that African Cardinals are not skilled enough in the art of shielding paedophiles like the out going Pope.
      Two things happened after the Pope resigned:
      -Thunder(ara san!) struck the Vatican.
      - 8 nude women on their knees inside a Catholic  Church in Paris with inscriptions such as "No more Pope","In gay we trust" et al tatooned on their breasts.
      Some thoughts for food!

      Yinka.

      The list of African cardinals show that Arinze has lived in the Vatican for several years. He is a top player and thats why he snd not other African brothers is being mentioned. Please look at. Malachi prophecy.

      We need to protest this so that people realise the years  of slapping
      Africans are over.

      The Ooni of Ife etc are ethnic positions, the Papacy is not.

      Is this not supposed to be the Holy Catholic and Universal Church?

      What is Europe offering from their thoroughly secularised society that
      makes anyone think the Church must always be led by a European?

      The actual leadership of the Church is no more in Europe so what
      Ratzinger is saying is fundamentally meaningless.

      The Church moved from Palestine to Europe.

      It has now moved beyond Europe.

      Appointments should be sensitive to this.
