Maybe it's difficult to understand when society teaches that we don't have to be responsible for our own actions. I don't know about resign, but it is his responsibility to take control of the situation and resolve the problems in a way to make sure it does not happen again.

The pope can't be held responsible for what some shady priests have done it would be better for you to say nothing than talk about what you don't know
The CEO of any other corporation that commits crimes is held accountable. Some crimes are more disgusting tha others and the Catholic church has commited some of the most attrocious against humanity.

Whether against children by sick individuals or against cultures as a whole.

Could you imagine if the Pope was indited for crimes against the children of the world. The Catholic church has done plenty to protect the bastards that committed these crimes.

I was catholic, not anymore, none the less I agree, we did loose a great man, catholic folks or not should recognize that.

faith does not determine the morals of the man, the man determines the morals of the man.
I have always tried to stick with one principle and that is, I don't attend weddings, re-enlistments or funerals...all these events mark the end of something good.
wolfdad, I gree with ya tho havent been able to entirly follow it, here's where I went wrong (if my wife read this she would be pissed!)

I attended one wedding, (mine)

I attended one re-enlistment, (mine)

and I attended one funeral (mine, when I re-enlisted )

(BTW the opinions stated by me are not neccesarily mine nor do I support the opinions therein)

Ask your Doctor if getting off your ass is right for you.

Many people were touched by him, and loved him. It's like losing a loved one to them. I don't see that it's that bizarre.

That said, he was considered by Catholics to be 'god's man on earth' so to speak.

I for one am glad to see him go...that's his lifes devotion to the church..etc... so be pleased to have him meet his end ...I'ts what he wanted and I hope for his sake it's actually there !! Dead and forever dark is still a possibility in some peoples eyes...mine included.

Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.... Dennis

It just seems odd to me as well that people spend so much of their time seemingly worshipping the Pope and the virgin Mary that they seem to forget that they are suppose to worship God. I'm not very religious myself but have read the bible enough to realize this. The only people in this world I will grieve over like some of these people grieve over the Pope is my immediate family. I mean, to be in the street breaking down whaling because a church leader dies seems very bizarre - do these people not have a life of their own? I agree he was a good man, but there are lots of those. I just can't honor any sort of organization that condones child molestation by allowing priest to get away with it for decades (possibly centuries) and sending them on to other churchs to do it over and over. And just because the catholic church says something is so doesn't make it so - if it was, the sun would be revolving around the Earth!!!

I'm not Catholic, but...

It was by chance that I was in St. Peter's Square last Wednesday when he made what turned out to be his final public appearance.

I don't consider myself especially religious, but I have to say it was a humbling experience made even more significant by his passing.

I strongly agree. If you try to recall the 10 commandments it clearly says in the first commandment that we should only worship the one true God.christians should follow the bible not the traditions of their religion.

Why don't you get your facts right no one is worshipping the pope he was the leader of the catholics and when you are a leader people respect you not worship you.

It amazes me how ignorant people are when they don't know what they are talking about. Before you go spouting off negative things about the Pope, why don't you do a little fact-finding on him first. He spent a large portion of his lifetime doing more for this world and for others than anybody on this board. I am not Catholic nor am I asking you to join the Catholic church, just to show a little respect for a man that passed on.

Well, we live in a free country and we have a right to our own opinions.
Ah, but then again if someones opinion doesn't agree with yours we're ignorant.
What people are doing seems like worship to me. Looks at these links:

http://www.roadsideamerica.com/tips...ractionNo==5296

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4019295.stm

This is the kind of thing that shows how out of touch with reality some people are. Give me a break - toast with the virgin Mary on it!!!!!

The catholic church is one of the most corrupt organizations in the world - look at what everyone else is writing here - most agree. Thank you but I'll put my faith in science.

I don't know if he was a good man. I know I haven't seen him do
anything but what he considered to be good. Only God and the
Pope himself knew of his sins.. and yes, I say sins... because
we are all sinners..

"judgement is mine sayeth the lord"

There are lots of people whaling about this on the air in front of the
cameras.. I wonder how many tears do they shed everynight when
they watch the news about a young teenage girl being raped or
killed. Or about young children being trapped in a blazing house
that took their lives.. Or even their neighbor who bids them good
morning for twenty years passing..

keep it all in perspective..
