    Who are South Sudanese to call for the next Pope to come from Africa? It is not the matter of, "it’s our turn." Africans are bunch of rebels and nothing good will ever come out of them

      What is wrong for a pope to come from Africa and South Sudan in particular? It may not be the turn of Africa as such but it can happen and Africa will have its own share to papal leadership.

        I agree with you Kingmaker, people like Dinkdong has no vision for a better day.
        We African can make it including South Sudan. We are talking of spiritual leadership not secular leadership Mr. Dinkdong.
        Let Dinkdong shape his attitude.

    Haah! What a worse nightmare? Have we first handle the issue of insecurity & corruption than to talk of all these leadership stuffs? Look at S. Africa which was initially an African’s beacon of peace has now turned to be a Bagdad. Where else would Pope derive from? From Ngundeng’s kin children? Lets stop dreaming. It’s not gonna happen & believe me.

      Does the Sudan also eye for this postion despite fervent passion for terrorism? How can pope hail come from the midst global terrorists and genocidaires?

      Be content with your irreligious organization as we knowvery well you don’t pray to God the Father, the giver of life and Creater of universe but to idols.

      Sorry Master, if it comes into true spiritual discussion; let us respect how we comment into it. I know there are people who put witches as their god.
      If you have a truly sense of God the Creator, how can we vote for another god. God is final! except the other gods from under the rivers and etc....
      In spiritual duty, we Southerners were known of being faithful.

    If Salva Kiir goes to Kator Catholic Church every Sunday you think your voice can be heard in Pope’s succession?

    repondre message

    • 15 February 2013 07:21, by Jojo

      Salva is a faithful Roman Catholic believer. His going to the Church has nothing to do with Pope succession. Be specific don’t involve an innocent person into this.

        i knew wine was/is taboo so why your pope not tell mr kiir to stop drinking and then take wise desicisons for him self and his state

        No Jojo. Salva Kiir is not a faithful believer. He is a pretender. He is a corrupted adulterer

    Giving Dinka a Pope post wouldn’t be a bad ideas and might stop them from violence towards their Neighbours and themselves, stealing other properties and of course country wealth, nothing else.

        It should certaily come particularly to Lake state where no rebels. It however needs some one who has profound faith in Alighty God and that he should be a highly educated person. Abraham Mayom Athian is a person I choose to become a pope in de world.
