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:
- Why doesn’t it take only one vote that’s unaminous?
- If some cardinals vote for someone other that the elected pope – does that mean they are out of touch with God’s will?
- If enough cardinals are out of touch with God – then could they elect a pope that God wouldn’t have chosen?
- 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.
