Assuming that Cardinal Turkson was speaking of his own chances at becomming pope, my main concern is going to be over the validity of his baptismal certificate.
- Does it have a raised seal?
- Is it signed?
- Does it have any creases?
- What proof will we have that it's an authentic baptismal certificate?
Would any of that even matter? You can go out on the net and download your own template for a baptism certificate.
After all, it's one thing for a black man to be president of the United States. It's another thing altogether to have one as the spiritual leader of the Catholic world. Look what happened when we had a Polish pope.
