Face it - you weren't going to get a liberal pope that supported gay marriage, contraception, or the like. The cardinals were all appointed by John Paul and Benedict and therefore share the same conservative views - which are the official views of the church itself.

That said, even though I'm not Catholic, I'm interested in seeing how Francis does. He's already conducting himself totally differently from Benedict, and he seems to be really into social justice and helping the poor - which I'm really happy with. We'll have to see how his papacy turns out.
And just like that, the story ends.
