    A Jewish Pope. Why not? The last two were Polish and German, a deviation from the centuries old tradition of chosing an Italian.

    Just think, you could be greeted at Jewish holidays with the greeting, “Gut Yontif Pontiff.”

    And you don’t have to be insulted next time a parishoner says he couldn’t understand a word of your speeches, since you will be giving them in Latin, which no one has spoken for 15 centuries.

    Actually, this would be “lehashiv atara le’yoshna” (return to former glory). Jews were, IIRC, two out of the first five popes.

    Do I have to drink communion wine until I can no longer tell Rabbi Emanuel Feldman from Pope Benedict XVI?

    Oh come on, all of those so-called reasons for Rabbi Feldman to not become the new Pope are nothing but lame excuses. All of us know that if he accepted their offer to become the next Pope, that Rabbi Feldman would be the greatest Pope that the world has ever seen. How refreshing it would be, to finally introduce the Catholic Church to such quaint notions as abolishing idolatry of all kinds, once and for all. And, my guess is, that we would then finally have a Pope who actually supports the Jewish Land of Israel. What a revolutionary concept!

    There is some recent precedent for getting elected to head up a very large entity on the world stage in order to undermine it.

    Well, there was one Jewish Pope in history — the first one.
