I'm not Catholic. Maybe I'd have to be Catholic to understand, or maybe its just me..... ....Why does it appear that people (mostly Catholics) treat the Pope as if he were Jesus Christ? Anytime he goes some where, people always flock to where he is at like he is more than human. I remember watching an epidsode of Saturday Night Live back in the early 90's. Sinead O'Conner was performing a musical act on stage. Toward the end of her song, she held up a picture of Pope Jean Paul II & tore it in two. Alot of people were outraged by that. I don't see hwy they were upset. To me, it was no different than tearing a picture of Jimmy Swaggart, Billy Graham, or Jerry Falwell (I have respect for all three). I could understand people getting ouraged over tearing a picture of Jesus Christ. It just shows how crazy our society has become when we idolize humans. I don't want anyone taking me the wrong way, I thought Pope Jean Paul II was a good guy. I just don't like how people make him out to be more than human.
