    I'm an Atheist and could care less what the church does. I was taking bets on Father Guido Sarducci for Pope though
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.

    Still don't care - I was annoyed when I logged into youtube and every time I surfed to a new screen a pop-up scroll bar gave me some sort of line about the Vatican.

    While I am not Catholic and do I not believe in religious hierarchy, I also recognize that the Pope has great influence over millions around the world. Considering that, I do care who is chosen.

    I don't really care but the selection of Pope will have outcomes on the isues here in the US on many political issues like health care and the freedom of worship.

    Well, in a way, like with intercourse with the thought of procreation, it is necessary to one extent or another, but is mostly one-sided in that regard. And to answer your first question, no, I haven't seriously contemplated the implications of why humans, or even the larger mammal (and animal) family, having the ability to feel the sensations of either pleasure or pain.

    For anyone hoping that the new Pope will be more modern, and in line with many American Catholics... Your perpetual hope has been dashed again.

    The conservative Cardinals have once again elected a dried up prune, with a penchant for no married priests, no birth control, no change, no nuthin... period.

    Good luck boys and girls, because every thing in this world is changing constantly... Except the Catholic Church.
    Nothing in excess.

    I didn't expect change.....I just HATE hearing and reading about that damn church on a daily basis.

    The pope is more important than the president of the united states.

    For that reason, it matters, and you should care. Even if you're not catholic.

    If you're not Catholic, then the first premise is probably false.
