The bible doesn't say anything about a pope at all. It's just one of the many traditions that Catholic church has madeStopie said:I thought that in the bible, it said that slavery was okay...and therefore an african pope would be kinda funny.
*edit* Sorry...the Bible instructs as to how slaves are to be treated, but does not owtlaw it all together, which is the support for the article that i read which supports what i origionally said. But becasue it doesnt outlaw it does not mean that it supports it, for, it was a social norm for the time the bible was written. Sorry and such...
