    That said the pope is a head of state and the spiritual leader of a quarter of the planet. He has lots of influence, so like it or not the pope is a big player on the world stage.
    Spiritual leader to a quarter of the planet is a bit over-exaggerated I think....

    Plus - I'm betting the 1.2 billion number is hardly a definition of those who are devote enough to attend church on a highly regular basis....

    Who the pope is and/or who the pope is not affects me to an absolute zero.
    I see very little "internet" news about this as well.. not that I care, I e do, a little (just a matter of interest)..
    A good free item on CL is of much greater interest....even goods at fair (and rare) prices on CL..
    Now, if we had a pope against pedophiles...that would be newsworthy....

    Re: Do you REALLY care about the next Pope?

    Just a point here...peohilia is a sin unless you are lawfully married in the Church, and Popes are against sin. I do think a lot of the press the Catholic Church gets on the subject is not accurate, like the below statement. My problem with the Church is how they handle it. Remember the Church thinks God will take care of things in the end.

    A little as it turns out. More like 18%. What I get for parroting what I heard on the news.
    Still even even accounting for people who pay lp service to the religion it's a lot of people.

    It's his signet ring---you know like marking X for your signature. Apparently each pope gets his own. I guess they can't write.
    Pope Benedict's signet ring will be destroyed using special silver papal hammer to ensure documents it was used to sign will not be forged - NY Daily News
