White smoke is coming out of the holy chimney at the Vatican ... signaling that Cardinals have finally selected a NEW POPE!  

The THOUSANDS of people who are waiting at St. Peter's Square are going crazy right now -- cheering, shouting, praying.  The place is packed ... it's like Pope-chella.

It only took the Cardinals 5 rounds of voting during the secret conclave in the Vatican to select the Catholic Church's new fearless leader.

The new pope is expected to be announced to the world within the hour.

Dennis Rodman is so happy right now ...

Story developing ...

The pope is just some dude that a bunch of other dudes picked to be the boss. Why do people pretend he is somehow holier now than before he was picked ? Nothing changed, he's still just some dude.

Very high odds that it will be another super-conservative pope who would have been fine in 1613, but not in 2013.

Don't they just put the names in a hat? I don't think it's as dramatic as survivor, but this should not be a long process.
