A study conducted at William and Mary College has led researchers to predict that Boston Cardinal O'Malley will be the next CEO of the world's leading provider of false religious claims.

 

The authors of the study suggest we are unconsciously influenced by facial appearance and perceived attractiveness, and by presenting subjects with photos of well known Cardinals they have concluded Cardinal O'Malley has the looks to get the job.

It's reasonable to say he is a good looking man, and he is the only US Cardinal I've ever heard a good word about, he did crack down hard on pedophile priests in Boston and the practice of shielding them, according to some reports.

 

Still, I strongly suspect the large Board of Directors of HRCC meeting now in the make believe nation of let's pretend will be thinking about a lot more than just good looks.  They need somebody that can stop a ship from going under after it has already started sinking.  Let's hope they choose poorly.   Plus, a beard?  On a Pope?  It certainly would be a change of pace from Ex-Nazi Ratzi.

 

A study conducted by psychologists Jennifer A. Stevens and Peter M. Vishton predicts that American Cardinal Sean O'Malley, 69, the archbishop of Boston, will be selected as the next pope of the Roman Catholic Church when the conclave of cardinals meets in Rome later this month.

Every Eastern Orthodox pope I've ever seen has a beard. The Catholic popes are the odd ones out.

That's not the only thing that's odd about HRCC corporate executives, it might be the most benign though.

Is that influence supposed to UNconscious? I though it was up front for everyone: "That looks nice, I'll have that one."


Believe nothing you hear and only half what you see.
