Is Cardinal O’Malley Qualified For The Papacy?

BOSTON — Boston Cardinal Sean O’Malley is in Rome Thursday meeting with Pope Benedict XVI on his last day and will then take part in the conclave to choose Benedict’s successor.

O’Malley’s name has been floated in the Italian press as a possible candidate for the position  but most acknowledge he is a long shot.

Two members of the Catholic community in Boston have different views as to whether O’Malley is qualified for the post: C.J. Doyle, president of the Catholic Action League, and Father Roger Landy, the pastor of St. Bernadette Church in Fall River, spoke with WBUR’s Bob Oakes on the topic.

    His out of date bigoted social views make him over-qualified to be Pope.
