So do you think he will promote the use of condoms in the fight against HIV. Or is he just a quick fill in till the next one? Anyway best of luck to him. Huge job huge ;)

Probably not. Remember that he was the head of what used to be the Inquisition!

As head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, he disciplined church dissidents -- but mostly with censure and the occasional bout of excommunication.

Burning at the stake is soooooooooooo last millennium . . .

No condom promotion since they also are a form of birth control -- apparently orphans with AIDS are a good thing, according to some in the Church . . .

He's most likely a transitional Pope -- like his predecessor, similarly conservative and not that young -- John Paul II lite -- I expect we'll be seeing another conclave within the next 3-5 years. It'll be interesting to see who gets picked THEN.
