    This message is for Soledad_Obrien : I look to you to bring DIVERSITY OPINION to your PROGRAM . However, I am a it disappointed in watching the CNN coverage of the Pope resignation PERSON OF COLOR EVEN THOUGH WE CONSTANTLY HEAR THAT THE LARGEST GROWTH OF THE CHURCH HAS BEEN IN NON EUROPEAN countries. This is not surprising but very DISPICABLE. I don't even know if any guests on STARTING POINT are real Catholic or non Catholic observers. As a Catholic I am looking forward to non European Pope, certainly not looking forward to an American, Canadian or Italian. There needs to be a DRASTIC change at the HEAD OF THE LARGEST religion, Europeans have LEAD this Church down the wrong path just like the western politicians in the last 200 years.
