Many of you may know that on Saturday at approximately 19:37 GMT Pope John Paul II died in his private apartment at the Vatican. He was suffering with heart kidney problems.

The news was met with long applause, an Italian sign of respect, followed by several minutes of silence as the crowd took in the news. A BBC news reporter stated everyone stood in groups comforting each other in ST Peters Square.

Below is the popes life as we know it..

[*]1920 - Born near Krakow, Poland grin
[*]1964 - Archbishop of Krakow smile
[*]1978 - Elected first non-Italian Pope for 450 years shocked
[*]1981 - Assassination attempt mad
[*]2002 - Final visit to homeland cool
[*]2005 - Deceased. frown

Could you all please sign your name and/or nickname on the forum as a sign of respect to the late Pope.

Thank you.

All the best,

-Andy.

Anyway, i tip my hat to the dead.

As an interesting side note, in the time its taken me to write this, approx 324 people world wide have died, wheres your bleeding heart for them? (source)

Well some on here probably wont actually know what a difference he made to the world, but when someone dies it sincerely is a shame. And I hope that he has gone to a better place where he'll suffer no more. smile

you mean like denouncing the use of condoms to prevent aids. Yup, he made a difference there. Probably caused a few thousands deaths cuz of that one. What a nice fella [Edit: altho to be honest its not entirely his fault, its his f**ked up religion thats the problem there, but don't you think that preventing something that i believe will one day wipe out the human race is more important than saving some sperm going down the toilet instead of dying inside a uterus? Bah, gone totally offtopic, but you know what i mean. Religion in my eyes is evil, so he is the embodiment of all that is evil to me]
(to save making another post: lol @ davec below)

grin I'm not even Catholic. :tongue: I just think he's a cool guy and he deserves alot of respect. I'm sure everyone of any religion would agree with me on that one. By the way Danthemandoo, that was totally rude. Like they say, if you don't have anything nice to say, dont say anything. Although i don't always go by that one :tongue:, I think it applies in this case. Talk trash somewhere else dude. I'd hate to see this turn into a religious debate. That would get pretty nasty.

If you meant the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) rather than the BCC, then I'll be pleased to tell you that they did explain the significance of the clapping.

Should I mention that the Vatican is not in Italy? or is that geography snippet too confusing for here?

Geographically The Vatican is located in Italy, however, it is not considered to be part of Italy.

Are you really under the water if you're inside a submarine which has water on all sides (including below it)? You're more 'in' it then 'under' it.

Problem with that is most people wheather they want to accept it or not, follow a relegion becuase there affraid of what is going to happen to them if they dont, either by threat of eternal damnation (aka marriage), or by threat of retalation for lack of faith (aka knocking her up and not marrying her). Once you release there is no hope and your damned if you do and damned if you dont, life becomes alot easier, its like , oh well what are they gonna do to me?

Oh yes, and millions followed hitler, I doubt many would say he was right, so head counts dont mean much, a single deed say more than a chour of voices.

One might well consider enabling people from all over the world to have a cheap and good quality client for irc chatting, has enabled more people to experences other people (if only in text talk) from other countries, and with luck produced a world where people might be just that little more hesitent to start yelling that its some other countries/peoples fault, when they happen to know a few of those people online.

Mybe Khaled has done something saintly?

think about it..
if hilter didn't go nuts and try to erradicate a race and take over the world would he really have been a bad man?

with his technics on punishment and tourtures as detorents the world just might a better place..??

yes/no??

Well actually, Pope John Paul II did manage to get something done. In death, he managed to unite various leaders from all over the world, many were enemies of one another, and they gathered in St. Peters Square to pay their last respects together. I don't know about you all, but I would consider that a miracle in itself since most of the time you can't even get them to meet with one another for discussion on various issues. A small miracle indeed even if it was for just one day...

I dont think so, from what I have read there are spilt votes here on whom will take his place. So who knows when they will decide.

I think they only get so long to do this as well.

What are you saying he should have diea sooner?

ok ill give you a #1 on that but personally i think thats a little lame, he was dead, they payed respects to the position he held not the man (well maybe the man as well i dont know) and as to "unite various leaders" just bringing them into the same room doesnt unite them, I saw this one scene on tv of Prince Charles and President Robert Mugarby sitting next to each other, Charles looked like he wanted to bolt for the door, looked like he was thinking "omg of all the people i could have sat next to"

I believe I heard something about a nine day mourning period, before congregating to vote on who the next pope will be. I'm not positive but I think its something along those lines.

Oh Dave Oh Dave

Well how about a Aussie Pope, will that make any difference to the way you feel ??

You seem to want a answer to things that I see most have tried to tell you already.

Maybe there was a number 6 added to your list. What has he done for us, he lived, he loved and he shone. That should be enough to say the least.

Anyway just for the record lets keep up with the poll on who will be our next cardinal


AS bookmakers double the odds of Australian cardinal George Pell becoming pope, an Italian newspaper has picked "Big George" as one of 18 favourites for next week's papal election.

The Archbishop of Sydney, George Pell, is the portrait of an outsider and the punters looking for a surprise win mustn't disregard this athletic ex-football player, a born fighter on whom John Paul II depended a great deal and who is well regarded by bishops the world over," it said.

?????? or could our next pope be DAVEC

hmm someone doesnt know sarcasim.

ok ill give you a #1 on that but personally i think thats a little lame, he was dead, they payed respects to the position he held not the man (well maybe the man as well i dont know)

I may well have done the same thing, I often follow the formalities of respect, even if i dont think thats how the person themselfs would have lived there live, I have farewelled friends silently and respectfully with theres families, and gone out that nite and got ripped, just as they used to do witrh me, which is the more fitting act of rememberence. And as to cold, maybe I did say "(well maybe the man as well i dont know)" but as to lame, well i could call you being a lame ass for not picking up on the sarcasim, but i wont becuase thats just name calling and and also doesnt prove any points, much like you saying its lame.

So what exactly is it then?

They went there to be politically expedents, failing to show the "right" amount of respect would have shown the "wrong" image to other people, who may or maynot get angry and do things to you of varying natures.

Not and Aussie im from the other side of the ditch.

Do you think I didnt like him? Well I cant say i did or didnt, I called him once to go have a few drinks but his secretary said he was out trying out his new car Pope Mobil (i liked his motorbike better The Popecycle) , and we all know drinking and driving well send ya straight to hell so that day was a bust.

General note, let's watch the name calling smile

We all know religion, particularly in this case as it involves the death of the Pope, can be a very sensitive issue. Please, be aware of other people's feelings, and realise the Pope was not just some man to a very large amount of people around the globe.

Gee Dave you seem to get cut up with no answers that make sense.
Whats the point you saying stuff like that when I feel you are just trying to be known.

Point being the pope is a pope he doesnt have to have qualities that we like or dislike, he was a great man, and hopefully a aussie will get the chance.

By the way you sound your being racist by asking me will it make a difference if his aussie or not.

Well nope Im not racist I have a motto
We are all human no matter what, who or colour we are.
Thats the problem with the world of today.

I hope the next pope is a great understanding man as the one that just passed.

Obviously enough has been said in this thread because answers have become very lame.
