Glenn Beck-"We are all Catholics now!"

Although I am not a huge Glenn Beck fan, he does have a valid point here. However, I am not nearly as convinced as he is that all of the new Cardinals are staunch "conservatives" as he labels them. The fact does remain, that if the Catholic Church is neutralized, then there is no hope for the disorganized and divided Protestants. Check out the video.

I kind of agree with Beck about Pope Benedict being conservative. I am glad for that because we need somebody like him to lead the Church against the culture of death and bring back the value of marriage and life.

However, I don't know if I can say he is the most conservative (maybe for this generation) because of how deep the history is in the Catholic Church.

Do you consider him as the most conservative (or one of the most conservative) Popes we ever have?

In reading the history and writings of the many Popes we have had, I personally would not consider him to among the most "conservative". As vicar of Christ of course he cannot err from the Chair of Peter. As far as who he appoints as Cardinals or bishops, or other fallible decisions he makes, I would not consider him to be extremely "conservative" or traditional, if you like. That is my own personal opinion however, and nothing more.
