Is the Pope like another Christ to Catholics? Or is he just this worldwide pastor?

Report as

Catholics (in particular) are confused about this concept. As you see in the other two responses, one calls him the world head of the church. The other says Pastor. He is Neither. God is the head of all Churches and the leader of the flock. Man is simply advancing his own deign on controlling the masses.

The proof of this, in regards to the Catholic Church is the Human invention of 'Papal Infallibility'.

So he is a bit like a governor of the state and Christ is like the President if you will?

Not quite. The Organized Religions are like Groups of Investors looking to do a "Hostile Takeover" all the while having ALL their resources going into PR to convince the shareholders that this is ALL in their best interests. The Religious Sect leaders are NOT in any way GOD. Although they certainly do spout that they are. Think Korresh, or Jeffers if you need an example.

Not like Christ in any way, but the Bishop who is the head of the church on earth. A figurehead, with authority though. Also the Bishop of Rome.

He is like Christ in as much as he is god's representative of earth. He know what god wants and sets all the rules. So if something comes up that wasn't for seen when they wrote the bible, like condoms or stem cell research, he has a chat with god and then lets us all know god's decision.

The Pope is like the CEO of a very large corporation who controls,through executives,the worldwide operation of his company. Remember this is a very simplified analogy

The Christians (or the Protestants) would insist that the Pope is an unblushing impostor, and the Vatican is a vampire fattened by splitting the best blood of the last 2000 years.

He is second only to God Himself, Gods embodiment on earth, HIGHER and more important than Christ even, with Godly powers. According to Catholics.
