Thoughts, anyone?

First thought: Very sad, but at least his suffering's over.

Second thought: Maybe I won't have to hear quite so much of the royal wedding anymore.

Another tragedy. But, for the cruel world we live in, people die, and we have to move on.

Funny to get that breaking news first from Spiderweb :P

He was the first non-italian pope. And he was against prevention - albeit HIV and global over-population. Hopefully, God's next CEO will be more up to date.
Well, I'm not catholic v_v

While I tend not to mourn death in the traditional manor, this has sadened me a bit.

As everyone knows, he was a genuinely good person. Definitely deserving of respect. At least he finally gets his peace. Er... assuming there is no afterlife, of course.

Don't dramatize the situation; The Pope's role was not that significant.

I don't think so. He did a lot to help the world. But there's a lot of hard headed bastards out there whose mindset won't change.

Honestly, the man lived a good life. He saw the world, strived for peace, and did more than any of us probably will.

Personally, I'm a bit glad, because guess who we haven't heard about in the last 24 hours.

You have to adimt, the man had guts. After a man attempted to kill him and was put in jail, he visited his assasin, alone.

Right. Because having the fourth-longest Papacy in history, being the first Pope to set foot in Greece since the Schism, the first Pope to set foot in Israel, a synagogue, or a mosque period, putting more ecumenical outreach programs than previously imagined possible into action, and serving as a visible, personally vital and powerful symbol of the biggest single Christian Church on Earth for almost three decades is nothing much.

He fought war, he fought the Soviets and the excesses of capitalism. Yeah, he also fought abortion, contraception, and ordainment of women, but he was the frigging Pope. What are we supposed to expect?

No matter what you think about his personal politics, you have to admit that John Paul II was a good man, a great Pope, and quite likely the single greatest public figure we will have seen in our lifetimes. And that's worthy of a little respect.

And of course, this is the first I've heard of any of this.
Not that I don't believe you, of course, but I'm just commenting on how I always manage to be ignorant of everything.

EDIT: (This in regards to Alec's post, of course. I saw the news shortly after he was pronounced dead.)

Now that he's dead, we can finally go back to discussing other important issues like Terri Schiavo...

There are 118 of them I believe (the ones under 80), though other sources say 117.

117 sounds better because there is no chance of a draw in the voting. But after the the next Pope is inducted, I will be expecting news reports on bribery, or something.

I'd also say no brains, although some of his actions suggest otherwise.

All of yous worrying about Terri Shiavo....She's dead, last week. What made go into hospital in the first place. I have the thought of that she wasn't always mentally crippled, as she has a husband and her husband wouldn't be able to marry a mentally crippled woman in a hospital bed.

???

Also, I agree with Alec that this Pope was one of the greatest men we'll see in our lifetimes. The rest of you should show more respect - John Paul II spent his life fostering peace, reaching out to Jews and Moslems as well as other Christians. Though I'm not Catholic, and I certainly don't agree with much of the church's dogma, John Paul II was a special man.

Yes she is. However, if you believe this has caused discussion to cease, you are sadly mistaken. People won't and won't shut up about the poor woman and what they think should have been done.

And I agree with AM. I'm protestant and agnostic, but this man did a lot of good. His conservative stance on abortion and prevention etc. aside, he has done a lot for understanding and peace between world religions.

In a way, I'm kind of glad he's gone home. It was so hard to see a man with so much spirit crippled and bedbound like he was. I'm sure he's got a great reward waiting for him on the other side.

Hey, if I can't indulge in a bit of religious talk here, where can I? ;)
