If the new pope reverses his dogmatic hardline positions, if he reverses the idiotic stand of the Roman Catholic Church on reproductive rights, on birth control, on married priests, etc., he will be a great pope. There's no question that he'll continue the reconciliation with the Jewish people. And hopefully, he will put pressure on Israel to end its stupid, hopeless occupation. I am totally against the involvement of any church in state affairs and in politics in general, but since the Catholic Church is going to do it anyway, let him stand for what's right at least.
