Post Pope Benedict
They finally elected a new pope....







With a brief membership of Hitler Youth :shock:
I don't think its anything to worry about, he might not have had a choice.

...And he's 78 years old...not sure if that's anything to worry about. I think it's a safe bet to say that all of us will see another Pope elected in the next 10 years.

In his memoirs, Ratzinger wrote that he was enrolled in the Nazi youth movement against his will when he was 14 in 1941, when membership was compulsory. He said he was soon let out because of his studies for the priesthood.

Two years later he was drafted into a Nazi anti-aircraft unit as a helper, a common task for teenage boys too young to be soldiers. A year later he was released, only to be sent to the Austrian-Hungarian border to construct tank barriers.

He deserted the German army in April 1945, in the final weeks of the war in Europe, and returned to Traunstein ? a risky move, since deserters were shot on the spot if caught, or publicly hanged as examples to others.

When he arrived home, U.S. soldiers took him prisoner and held him in a POW camp for several weeks. Upon his release, he re-entered the seminary.
