i have to say....there's a huge amount of apathy towards this in the US, especially with people under the age of 50.

i'm sorry that the pope died, but really...did anyone our age really care?

I care more about the death of Mitch Hedberg than the death of the pope because Mitch Hedberg actually had an effect on my life.

I feel really awful about it. I look at the pope not so much as an iconoclastic figure of Christianity, but more like the way I look at the Dalai Lama. While I may not believe everything they do, I believe their intent is purely for the good of all man. So yes, I do believe everybody has lost out to some degree.

You don't have to be like that.

Don't you mean Catholicism? [img]/wwwthreads/images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

But anyway, yeah. Since I'm not Catholic, this news doesn't really affect me much. Always bad to hear about people dying though.

A number of the people I fence with are Catholic, and yes, they do care. Most of m' mother's side is Catholic too. So...while I'm not Catholic, most of the people I care about, and a number of m' friends, will be mourning.

I'm more concerned about my friend who just died in ICU this Wednesday. I've got to attend his wake today.

It feels so strange that I'll never be able to see him again.

I may not care for him as some kind of religous icon but more I care that he died because he effected other people's life in a positive way...and that's what's sad.
