    Default Why do people like the Pope so much?

    So they just picked the next Pope. There are an astounding amount of people excitedly surrounding the Vatican right now. My mom wanted to watch and she even started crying when he first came out. She isn't even a practicing Christian. I don't get it. The Pope doesn't seem to do much of anything anyway.

    Anyone mind enlightening me?

    They provide illusionary hope for a better future. Kinda like God and Allah, but in a more tangible way.

    A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
    A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

    Ahh okay. I appreciate an actual answer and it makes sense.

    Do you know what exactly the Pope does? I liken him to the royal family in England. They just seem to be there as diplomatic figureheads. Even then, I don't understand why the royal family is so great either.

    John Paul helped bring down the iron curtain.

    The Pope is just the bishop of Rome. Rome otoh has symbolic primacy.

    The interesting thing about his speech is he kept it simple again, and spoke of his mission to Rome.
