#119360 - 10/01/03 08:53 PM Should the pope retire?

I admit I am not a catholic, but I am really curious about why the pope, who is obviously barely concscious, doesn't just retire and let someone younger take over? How inspiring is it to see someone who looks asleep and listen to someone you can't understand?

I mean no disrespect. As an outsider, I am just curious.

As an insider, I do understand. He appears to be extremely weak....and you can't understand him. Of course, everytime I've seen him, he is speaking one of his fluent 15 languages.

Really, I am not sure retirement is an option. I think you or in this case he is the pope until death.

He's not a whole lot different than the chairman of my bank. Occasionally he wakes and says something important.

That is interesting. I was not aware that it had changed. Well in that case, he should retire.....or speak English and stand up straight....

Now that is cruel...Sorry Sorry Sorry
