Catholic church cements irrelevance till the next Pope

So, a new Pope has just been elected. The new Pope is Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger. If you've never heard of him, lets just say this guy is one hardcore old school Catholic. So just in case you thought the Catholic church might take a few steps foward, check this description of his work at the Vatican.

"In the Vatican, he has been the driving force behind crackdowns on liberation theology, religious pluralism, challenges to traditional moral teachings on issues such as homosexuality, and dissent on such issues as women's ordination."

So once again, American Catholics have yet another Pope who they will politely listen too, and then just do whatever the hell they want to do.
