Benedict XVI

A new pope has been elected today. Joseph Ratzinger, the German cardinal is now Pope Benedict XVI.

The news commentator here on ABC set up a false contrast between John Paul II reaching out to other faiths and Ratzinger saying that religions other than Christianity don't have the road to salvation (I'm citing this from memory). The way he put it, there was no contradiction there, but most viewers probably didn't realize that...
