A life is a life. Sad to see another good person die. I can't say his beleives stop me from being sad, just because we don't see the world in the same light and all that.
Sad to see someone pass who gave hope to so many people, and who so many looked to. But yeah, down to the nitty gritty, it is just another person, in that regard, I agree.
Lets be mindful of how we phrase things, this is a sensitive topic just as the gay rights thread was. I don't want to issue warnings for disrespect.
Well, he's just another person in the sense that he's a human being, but the pope was also THE most respected person in the world. Not because he was just "the Pope" but because his diligence in spreading the faith to everyone has never wavered even with attempted assassinations and failing health. The man was a great man, regardless if you are catholic or not, people should respect his peaceful objectives, regardless if you are muslim, atheist, jewish ect.
