You might ask why there is a vote at all. Couldn’t god just float the one he wants through the air and in a big booming voice heard all over the world at once say I want this one? Oh, my bad, that would mean that god would have to show himself, and that aint gonna happen now, is it?

Thinking out loud

    Or why don’t they just do it like the Copts, by writing the names on pieces of paper, putting them in a bowl, and have a blindfolded little boy grapple in the bowl and pick one. And whoever’s name is on the paper he chooses becomes the next Coptic patriarch.

    • That sounds about right 😉

    • Are you kidding? You want to blindfold a little boy and parade him around all those cardinals? That’s insane!

        They could also just have the one presiding over the election do that. I believe that person is ineligible, to avoid election fraud.

        • Fraud? When god is telling them who to vote for? Impossible!

            Perhaps he is telling them. But I doubt any of them really listen to what he has to say.

            • LOL, that’s a good point. I wonder if it was god that told them to spend 30million for apartments over top of Europe’s largest gay sauna?

    • Well, in ancient Athens (you know the “first democracy”), people selected their representatives through lottery. Why? Because they believed that in this way the gods (especially Athena) expressed their choice whom they wanted to be appointed.

      The catholic church could easily do this same, just replace “Athena” with “the holy spirit” or “Mary”. One round will be enough, no ties.
