Swiss paper holds out hope for Buddy Christ

Catch the last three paragraphs of this round up of Swiss opinion: "The canton Valais paper Le Nouvelliste says it is likely that the new Pope will surprise everyone. It adds that during the Second Vatican Council of the early 1960s he was considered 'open to reform'.

Reform is at the top of a wish-list which Blick presents to the new Pope. 'We want a Pope who will engage in dialogue... a Pope with the courage to doubt and question himself... a Pope who will defend the poor and... who will do away with discrimination.'

Finally it hopes the new Pope 'will not be obsessed with sex'. 'Constantly harping on about sexual morality suffocates the liberating Christian message of love and hope,' it argues."
