    I am a Catholic and the selection of the pope is very important to me. You as a non Catholic would never understand this in a million years.

    The whole idea of religion is idiotic but it's even worse watching Catholics support a system which has allowed the hiding of pedophile priests for centuries.

    Shame on you people.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Well, to answer the poll question: I care if he calls himself Peter and Rome is destroyed.

    I said nothing even slightly derogatory nor claimed to be a Catholic. I did not claim to understand.

    If it's the one called Peter, whose dad was a carpenter, then we're all in deep doo-doo, allegedly.

    Yes. It's an important Church, one that I at least grew up in and respect, and it's a valuable political institution.

    I don't think that's true NP. Lots of us non-Catholics understand well how important the Pope is to Catholics. Historically it's why they weren't all that trusted here in the US.

    You'd think there's nothing else in the world that's of any importance.

    Why the hell is this such a HUGE news item?

    Outside of Vatican City, who really cares?

    Do you?
    Does a pope really effect your daily life?
    Do you honestly have a personal stake in who the pope is?
    Does your day change at all depending on what the pope says or does?

    Is this "next pope" phenomena really that big of a deal?
    No - I couldn't care less. and until this all blows over i'm avoiding the news.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
