New Pope

April 23, 2015
A high school history teacher was discussing the funeral of Pope John Paul II with his class. One student asked how they chose the new pope.
The teacher explained the process, finishing with, “So the cardinals pick him.”
A student in the back of class, asked, very seriously, “Why would they let a baseball team pick the next pope?”

  1. Because it’s more fun that way. In the past they’ve had to threaten the cardinals with death to get them to vote and actually elect a pope. They aren’t very good at it most of the time.
    We’d probably be better of if the baseball team did it.
