    I may be a Muslim...but I wasn't mad at the man.
    My only problem with him and other popes was accepting the title "Holy Father".

    That title belongs only to the Creator.



    One good thing i can say about him was that he wasn't afraid to speak his mind.
    He criticized Bush as well as other world leaders for their hypocisy.

    He also criticized contemporary Western society for its immoral culture and promotion of homosexual marriage.

    I can't think of one positive thing to say about this man. With all the little boys that have been molested in the last 20 years, I've never heard come out once to denounce his own priest on the matter.

    And that's just one topic

    He's a human being like anyone else. It's sad that people seem to forget that in the course of worshipping him as something more.

    I used to listen to brutha Khalid Muhammad diss the pope in his speeches and it "sounded" cool at the time to diss everything white that wasn't right; but we must mature and learn to separate fact from fiction from entertainment if we want the world to take us seriously.

    His life affected alot of people positively. Rather you believe in his faith or not he impacted millions of peoples lives with his passing.

    The Pope appointed over 95% of the cardinals in the catholic church, and paedophilia has run rampant, and people call this man the Holy Father?

    It means nothing to me that he has passed...the bigger concern is the greater younger evil that will replace him

    True indeed, and like I said in that other POPE thread:

    "Personally, I'm glad the POPE is dead. He's been directly and indirectly responsible for much of the mayhem on this earth."

    That's true man. He's a borderline pimp. I really didn't follow the pope or his business, but I don't agree with how he was worshiped even though he's just a man. Like everyone has said, what did he really do to deserve the praise he received? I guess it's sad because he was a fellow human-being, but all in all, I really don't care. If it wasn't on every channel I would have never realized he died or was even sick.
