I’m not a subscriber to Catholic Daily, so I really don’t know all the details of papal doctrines under Pope John Paul II. I’m sure many have their issues with his policies, as with all popes I would imagine. But, I have to admit I liked him. He seemed like a good guy, and he reminded me a bit of my grandpa. On top of that, he did some cool things, like issue an official apology on behalf of the Catholic Church for 2000 years of, well, pretty shitty stuff they’ve done to humanity. He called the American priests to task for their addiction to little boys. He did a lot toward healing rifts between Christians and Jews. Instead of sitting in his posh digs in Vatican City, he travelled enough to circle the globe 30 times over, visiting the impoverished and oppressed.
I’m sure he’s done his bad stuff too, but he seems to me a good man that was just trying to faithfully execute his beliefs. God speed, sir.
So, the WTC attack happened on Davion’s birthday. The Pope has now died on my birthday. Alphamonkey, I’ll need to know your birthday so I can be sure to stay indoors and be watching CNN that day.
