Does God choose the Pope?

In theory – God controls the cardinals when they choose the pope so that the cardinals choose the pope that is God’s choice. If that is true then:

  1. Why doesn’t it take only one vote that’s unaminous?
  2. If some cardinals vote for someone other that the elected pope – does that mean they are out of touch with God’s will?
  3. If enough cardinals are out of touch with God – then could they elect a pope that God wouldn’t have chosen?
  4. Why doesn’t God just show up and pick the pope?

I just hope that God doesn’t pick a pope who allows preists to have sex with children.

At Least Cardnial Law wasn’t in the running (we hope!).

My sentiments exactly. The whole thing was like pro wrestling: “I’m gonna win that robe, I’m gonna slam cardinal so-and-so, and it’s all gonna happen sunday-sunday-sunday!”
