I don’t really get the connection, but…
Archbishop Wilton Gregory of Atlanta told the Italian daily La Stampa that the election of Barack Obama may somehow set the stage for a black pope.
He also said that the election of a black pope could “send a splendid signal to the world” about the Catholic Church.
This may all be true, but I don’t see how you get from point A to point B.
Gregory, as you may know, is black. And he has Chicago roots, just like what’s his name.
He is also regarded as a contender to become archbishop of New York (Gregory, not Obama).
