Pope John Paul II – A tribute

The world has lost a religious leader who was revered across people of all faiths and none. I don’t exist? He was an inspiration, yes, the message that one day, you too could father 300 children a man of extraordinary blind faith, dignity and courage. Even the courage to tell homosexuals they were evil – standing up to that massive majority.

Throughout a hard and often difficult life as opposed to everyone else, he stood for social justice (unless you’re gay, want an abortion or have HIV \ AIDs) and on the side of the oppressed apart from the choir boys, whether as a young man facing the Nazi occupation in Poland or later in challenging the communist regime. Both of which he single handedly defeated, and never claiming any of the vacated power for himself. He never wavered, metaphorically speaking, never flinched, never admitted he was wrong, in the struggle for what he thought was good and right.

Yet whatever his own hardship and experience of what was wrong in human nature (those bloody gays again), he never lost faith in the human spirit and its ultimate capacity to do good. Unless you’re handing out contraception – that’s a wicked act – for which you will burn in hell for all eternity.

Bloody hell, I bet I’m gonna get flamed for that one…

Pope John Paul II – A tribute

  1. Alex Newman says:

    I don’t really pay any attention to the pope. The first time I heard he died was the day after, when someone told a story about a pope who took office (or however you say it for a pope), went out to a garden, and died. Fun, right?

  2. alex trafford says:

    I don’t really care about the popes death either, but what was good was the day before he died the mirrors front page was covered with Michael Douglas’s "face job" and featured the dying man in the corner.

  3. I think he changed much society thats why I care. I cant still believe that he was the first Pope to go in2 a synagouge (sorry for incorrect spelling) and a mosque. Also i feel very sorry about that guy on the contender last night. I heard one of them commited suicide and that mental black guy called Naiji did and he had a daughter but supposedly he commited suicide because of his health and not the contender

  4. Pope Abby I says:

    seemed he did some good things for the church and society however he was also homophobic and against euthanasia and abortion therefore i am not really bothered about his death as my own views differ greatly from many things he was trying to achieve.

  5. Daragh says:

    John Paul II Pope – ‘Pontius Maximus – Supreme Bridge Builder.’ He built bridges between Continents, Nations, World Religions and most of all between individual people. How could these aspirations / achievements differ from anyone trying to build a better world…

  6. S Charles says:

    I didnt realise the pope was homophobic. How could he not love the whole of mankind notwithstanding. I find it strange that a man of such intellectual capacity could be so inflexible on subjects such as contraception, abortion and gay rights. That cannot be right. We are all Gods people he has made us, no one human being can deny the work of God. Pope or no Pope.
