There's very few black catholics, a hispanic pope would make about a billion times more sense.

I doubt the Vatican gives a shit about making a political statement about race though, something tells me it's not a big deal there.

Emerging markets.

He could also be looking for immunity from prosecution to turn states evidence against the current carmelengo, if you go with the far more believable theory DJ Brenton proposed.

Maybe, except he shielded paedo's for years and hasn't exactly been as remorseful as someone should be, imo. Fuck if I was in charge of an organisation and found that stuff out I'd have gone apeshit.

Why would he need immunity in Italy?

Because he only has 100 acres to wander round otherwise he's in Italy. He can't even travel to the airport without passing through Italy.

The report in that website is nonsense BTW. Some random group of self-elected judges have forced the Italian government to honour an arrest warrant they've created? Do me a favour. It's an offfshoot of the Freeman nutters.

The suggestion was that he would go off to some unknown monastery tho. No need to leave Vatican City...
