    I couldn't care much less.

    A dumbass Pope will replace the last dumbass Pope to lead their dumbass religion (of course, ALL major religions are 'dumbass' imo).

    I think that those that vote against the teachings are the exceptions rather the the rule and they are not good Catholics.

    Because blind faith in dogma always ends well for everyone.

    There are many polls that show a majority of Catholics in North America favor such anti-Catholic policies as gay marriage, abortion, and contraceptives. This is why the term "cafeteria Catholics" was first coined - it rings true.

    American Catholics, for the most part, ignore the Vatican and do their own thing. That's something that's concerned the Vatican for a long time, they came up with the term "cafeteria Catholic" to describe their frustration of having no control over them.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It's likely why there won't be an American Pope anytime soon - the rebel nuns don't help in this regard either - if you can't lead your limited flock in the States, how can you be expected to lead the world's Catholics?
