There shouldn't even be a Pope.

Hey WhiteDove, look how long it took the USA to get a half-black president! And the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church is wayyy more conservative. Back in the 60's it was a miracle that JFK got elected president, his being Roman Catholic and all....

Yehu

PS: Good answer Tom. Good answer.

PPS: Canada ever have a black prime minister?

PPPS: Popes get voted in.

hahaha, I didn't even think about it, but you are right...Canada has never had a black prime minister.

I guess that was a very stupid question........as you say, look how long it took the USA to get one.

Reminds me of a little song we used to sing when I was a little child.

"Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world....
Red and yellow, black and white
They are precious in His site,
Jesus love the little children of the world."

Yes,

I remember the racial controversy surrounding that song which led to the change -

"Red, brown, yellow, black and white"

(Although technically white people are pink.)

Some people just come unglued over nothing.

Yehu

PS: Of course had my grandfather not been a pastor in Reading, PA I would have known nothing of this as a little kid.  Letters, council meetings, synod declarations, approval committee votes, memo to remove non-compliant VBS (Vacation Bible School) song sheets, new rules on racial sensitivity...

I should have seen the signs and gotten out sooner than I did.  Life's too short to be fighting over perceived slights.

Actually, white people are ivory. Not a big deal. Just putting my 2 cents in.

I wonder who is considered brown. Must be Arabs.
I wish I was brown. I am "brown and white". (freckles by the hundreds)  Wink  queen
