    Maybe a bunch of miracles can change my outlook on religion.

    What -miracles???
    We are all doomed!

    This is the Pope's message: "Pray for me".
    What kind of self indulgent bullshit is that?

    Seems like a really nice man, though.

    I think the "Pray for me" is to further underscore that he's no different from us, really.

    Humility is his thing.

    (Plus, it's a big job and he's almost 80; he probably needs the prayers.)

    for a non-believing heathen like me it's really odd I've been totally hooked on watching the wall-to-wall Pope coverage... MSNBC has been the best with this.
    No news just all Pope and circumstance

    The Pope seemed to cure John Boehner's problems. John's pain in the ass will soon be over.

    I am a semi-believer and am thrilled to have it on TV all day!!!

    Am in public now and the TV is on in the store.

    :snicker:

    I think the Pope appeals to people's need for something higher, for a life of service; plus he's relatable.

    Genius P.R.!!!

    he is much better then the nazi pope he replaced. seems like a nice old man who really believes in that gabaley gook. after all he is just a prisoner of his office. he is told what to do and when to do it. everything is highly planned and scripted.

    Do non-Catholics give a damn about the Pope?

    My husband said that DC had asked the Pope to fix the problem ridden metro. Now that would be a miracle.

    I do have one friend who tells me he "prays for me."

    How do I tell him nicely to stop doing this?

    I feel like it'd be too much of an asshole thing for me to say "Dude, STOP praying for me."

    Why does this bother me so much in the first place?
