Is Pope Francis really non-European?

There has been much hue and cry across the world since the resignation of Pope Benedict and appointment of Pope Francis. He has been touted as the "First non-European Pope" and so on and so forth. I have a simple question: Is he really non-European? and Who is media trying to fool? Is the media and Catholic church trying to make a fool of everyone in the world? Come on! have some logic. Just because Jorge Bergoglio aka Pope Francis I was born in Buenos Aires, it doesn't make him non-European. His parents were Italians - aka Europeans.

Whatever the media may assert and the Catholic church may proclaim, this new pope is as European as one can get. The media is just trying to hoodwink people into believing that the Catholic church has become open to having non-European Pope. They haven't even gone out of their own nation, Pope Francis is a "person of Italian Origins". Stop the media frenzy please. Reference: NPR

Money - the Focus of America

Close at heels of the other story I blogged about is this one about the US Catholic Church. As I exited from my Hotmail account this headline screamed out for attention: "US Catholic Church a $170 billion business". The article, written in the aftermath of the appointment of new pope in the Vatican is all about the challenges that he would be facing. This article focuses on the $170 billion business of the Catholic churches. The write up draws broad comparisons between the Catholic church and the few corporations that spend as much money ($170 billion) in a year. There is no data on how much the church makes, I am pretty sure it is a lot more compared to how much it spends.
