That old time religion

I would like to congratulate Roman Catholics on the election of their new pope.

According to reports, he is conservative, which is exactly what is required from a religious leader.

Religion needs to call people back to the straight and narrow, and not follow them into debauchery. I also believe that many people have a poorly developed sense of right and wrong, and that the fear of eternal damnation is an excellent way to curb whatever criminal predilections they might have. Therefore, the election of a pope not given to wishy-washy moral relativism is a good thing.
