Todays radio question: 04/06/05

Would you stand 8 hours in a line to pay your respects to the Pope?
post #2 of 20
Nope, simply because I'm not catholic.

I'm catholic but since ive already seen the pope i dont need to go there.
I just saw on tv that there have been people standing there for 12 hrs to get in

No. I can pay my respects right here. Simply say a prayer.

I think those people who are standing in line like that are more curious to "see" what's going on.

BTW - I read this morning that the line is now a 24 hour wait and they will be stopping it soon.

Regarding on this matter

Do you think there should be another pope?

Because i dont...

Nope. Not Catholic so it doesn't mean a whole lot to me. Yeah, the wait times, as reported at lunch were between 20-24 hours. They said they would be stopping people getting in line very soon.

As for another Pope? Yes, there will always be another Pope. There has been a Pope for centuries. Even if this one was one of the best, there still should be a successor to run the Church and be the official voice of God or whatever. To not have another Pope would mean the end of the Catholic Church.

I once slept outside for a furbee that I did not get.. But I would not stand in line for the Pope.. I don't like funerals as it is and it's not like you get dinner afterwards or anything.. But there are very few people I would stand 8 hours in line for.

LoL! thanx heidi!!!
AS you have noticed i dont really follow the religion... or any for that matter...
I hope the next pope is going to be pretty like he is

I'm not catholic, so it's a non-issue for me, but I can't imagine the situation where I would do that. One does not have to look upon the deceased's face to pay one's respects -- that is the way I see it, anyway.
post #13 of 20
I'm not a religious person, so i'd say no. I'm not even sure if i'd do it for anyone in teh public eye.
post #14 of 20
No i wouldnt.

But I would have stood in line to speak to him while he was living.
post #16 of 20
I have said my prayers and will continue to do so, but at this point no I would not.
I waited 7 hours once to see him while he was alive and that memory will always far outshadow seeing him in death.

Last night nightline did a show that was a reporter with a camera standing in line, interviewing people and then filming going inside. I really felt like I was there, it seemed very emtional for many as once they were inside they were crying, the pope just looked like he was asleep.

I'm not catholic either, but I know I wouldn't wait that long for much of anything!
