A former Hitler Youth and leader of the Inquisition is elected Pope.
UPDATE: before somebody points it out in comments, I know that membership in the Hitler Youth was compulsory at the time. As I understand it, worshipping the Emperor was also compulsory in ancient Rome.
UPDATE 2: really detailed article on Ratzinger here. Interesting stuff.
Perhaps later: some writing on why I even care about who’s Pope, not being Catholic and all, and why I’m disappointed it’s Ratzinger.
