Habemus Papam!

In a surprising turn of events, Catholic Answers let slip its conclavist sympathies when it elevated John Bugay to the papacy.

Re: How not to do apologetics - curtesy of John Bugay and the Triablogue
John is not an historian. He is a fisherman.

The Fisherman's ring is placed, by the cardinal camerlengo on the finger of a newly elected pope. It is made of gold, with a representation of St. Peter in a boat, fishing, and the name of the reigning pope around it.

In a press release, Karl Keating made it official:

Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum:
Habemus Papam!
Eminentissimum ac reverendissimum Dominum,
Dominum Johannes,
Sanctæ Romanæ Ecclesiæ Cardinalem Bugay,
Qui sibi nomen imposuit Petrus II.
