The religious implications of this don't matter a jot me me, and many millions more. But I see that the favourites include African and South American candidates, both being hugely over populated poor continents.

I wonder if either of these were to succeed, a new enlightenment towards sheath contraception on health grounds, and the obvious acceptance of the side effect of birth control can be at all contemplated within the Church of Rome for the 21st century and beyond?

Or will they continue with the medieval head in the sand approach?

Apparently, Cardinal Angelo Scola is a hot tip for the new pontiff.

If he's elected will the BBC have to follow every news story about him by saying 'other soft drinks are available'?
