Aside from the Jewish-Catholic aspect of the Church and the Papal election, I am saddened that the Church elected such an old, conservative, European Pope. What the Catholic Church needs is a modern leader from the developing world. Most of my German (Bavarians excluded) don't like him from what I've heard. He's called Gods Rottweieler for G_d's sake.
