Do you like the system of guidance from the Pope? Do you think that the Pope holds the status of a leader in the world? Do people pay attention to what he says?

I'm an atheist, and while I respect other people's beliefs, I don't agree with religion of any sort, so I don't think the pope should hold any sort of power in matters outside the church.
I think for Catholic people he is definitely a figure of importance.
I shall keep my opinion to myself on this one.

Do share jonaj. Why do I have a feeling you're holding back something negative?
by Vee
I am.

Never discuss politics or religion? lol
I will politics and some religion
but I stop in my tracks with the Pope.
by jonaja
I adore the current Pope. I certainly think he has the heart and mind in the right place. I consider the status of the Pope as an important one among the world leaders.
I wish I could take to Pope Francis, but I read something that has scared the living daylights out of me (of course there is no way to determine its veracity nd it doesn't have anything to do with him personally), and for that reason I can't help but be filled with dread at the sound of his name. He is our leader (I am a Catholic), and for that I respect him. Without him, and those who have come before him, I dare say we would be lost. I think that having a papal figure is important for the unity of the Church and for its members. I adored Pope Paul II. I think he truly was a pope of the people, and he did the Church massive favours by putting together the Theology of the Body. I think that if only more people knew about the fundamental teachings contained therein, they would not be so quick to dismiss the Church or Catholicism in general.

This man is a saint. Literally. I think the importance of the papal figure cannot be underestimated. During a time of dynamic, and sometimes scary, change, he grounds us (Catholics). I think too that the Pope plays an important role on the world stage, amongst other religious and political leaders.
by Vee
Maybe you think this Pope will be the very last?
Time will tell if St Malachy was right.
by jonaja
Oh dear, jonaj. That's exactly what I'm thinking.
by Vee
What did St Malachy predict ?
by fran.
That Francis would be the final pope before "the beginning of the end." Considering nearly all of the other 'signs' are in motion, I can't help but think this might be it.
by Vee
I respect everyone has a right to their religious beliefs. But not being a Catholic, i don't put the Pope on a pedestal. I was always taught not to speak about religion in public and when i think about all the trouble in the world at the moment, I think it was probably good advice!
Sandy, I think that's really sad. We should be able to speak about religion in public. I'm a catholic and I studied Islam at uni and had many muslim friends. I love learning about others' beliefs and cultures. Wouldn't it be great if people could simply respect diversity?
