All hail.

As an agnostic, I can't personally say that I feel the popes death affects me in any way whatsoever. Though on a different level, I acknowledge that the head of an organisation and someone held in high regard by many has passed away.

Rest in Peace Pope John II.

Mcmurphy may be right, but not all the people that died contriubuted to society and showed unwavering moral standards. Also, why do people always have these "death threads"? so people can just repeat variations on the phrase "rest in peace, he/she was a good person"? its kinda weird, i mean, they should just mention it then lock the thread, Because all that ever happens is everyone says the same thing, then someone starts saying something controvertial, and everyone argues in circles about it, then it gets locked anyways, so.....yeah.

I think Tom Jones should be the pope now.



He's the perfect candidate!

Give all of these people your respect. These people died last week in my town. I think they deserve your utmost respect because they died ok?

Colorado Springs, Colorado Death Notices

THE DEAD DESERVE MORE RESPECT THAN THE LIVING! If someone's dead, you should TRULY appreciate the things they accomplished in their life, because when they're alive their accomplishments mean nothing. You should especially respect and honor people who you have no idea who they are. The sincerest form of appreciation is to respect and honor people you don't know, but only when they're dead and everyone who knew them is crying. rolleyes

Did any of them happen to lead nearly a billion people straightforward in a religion, and still preach tolerance between the many religions of the world?

Did any of them advocate world peace to millions of people and a number of world leaders?

Did any of those folks in Colorado have an assassination attempt on them, and then meet with their assassin sometime after the fact offering forgiveness?

Now, I'm not very religious in the least, but I do think this was a Pope that stands to admire from the Roman Catholic Church. A lot of them were not so kind and well-meaning as this Pope.

I agree with A_Pickle,

Everybody dies, yes, but not everybody has done this much good for the world. He does deserve "special" recognition. And sure there are other good people in the world, its just that he got his chance (by becomeing pope) to do what he wanted to do.

A sad event for Catholics all over the world. I won't go into my own thoughts on the Catholic church and papacy here, though...

What did rather offend me was the 24/7 constant news coverage of the guy's long, drawn-out death rattle. I found that to be rather sick and unpleasant - days and days of hourly updates of an old, ill man dying. It all seemed very morbid and disrespectful.

One good thing has come out of this, though - there are now undercover policemen in Rome disguised as monks. Which is just plain cool.

Did Terri Schiavo do any of that? I think not. My point is not that the pope's death is not important, because it is, but what I think is ridiculous is when someone dies, someone not important (Terri Schiavo for example), people FREAK OUT about it. But only when it's being televised. Laci Peterson is another example. Some random woman gets killed, suddenly she and her murderer husband are celebrities. It's just not right.

I don't believe that the world needs to be forced to listen in on every aspect of a person's life like that, and I agree with Tarn that 24/7 coverage of such things is disrespectful. If everyone on Earth got the same amount of news coverage when they died, fine. But the thing is, THEY DON'T.

This is the same thing with how I feel about the invasion of privacy of celebrities. OH NO! Jen and Brad split up! Well, wow... What is the divorce rate in America? 50%? Let's have news stories for every one of them: "Ken Brady and wife Trischa are getting separated! Who's leaving who? Full story at 11."

So yes, I didn't mean to imply that the pope doesn't deserve respect, but my post was aimed towards sk8npirate's post about how all of these "death threads" are to give people respect. I remember one last year where someone died in someone's school, and the person who posted the story didn't know the person who died. I'm sorry, but it just gets on my nerves.

All this talk about dead people becoming famous, and respected reminds me of "Pauly Shore is Dead"

oddly enough, none, not a single one of my catholic friends cared the least about the pope dying. and these are devout catholics, not the kind who just have catholic parents and don't practice.

I don't particularly think she needed the coverage she got, either, if you'll check my post in that thread.

I agree. One FXhome topic does not constitute 24/7 coverage, merely that someone here feels the pope needed some recognition. I feel that John Paul II was an exceptionally good Pope, and I have MANY reservations about organized religion.

Im not Catholic or anything but I think his death has somehow made an effect on everyone.

I was in Italy during holy week up to Easter, and we visitted the Vatican on Good Friday before the big service. Just by visiting there I think it has hit me somewhere that I wouldnt think it would have if I hadnt visited to see the square and basilica...etc.

Italy is one cool place.

Then don't read them. Leave other people on the forum, who want to post messages of their respect, to do as they please. As long as they aren't hijacking other threads or posting multiple topics etc and causing problems for the moderation team, I see no reason why it should bother you. When you see a thread like "The Pope is Dead", just don't click it, and then your problems are over, right?

Cheers,
Arktic.
