What's your opinion on the Pope's resignation?

Just want to know

Report as

I think he did the wise thing by resigning. He knew what his limitations were, what his Doctors told him, and chances are great that He felt as though he would be "cheating" people by not giving it 100%. I respect him for doing so.

It's big news to me. I find new and old as really cool. Monotonous and unexpected things I find equally enthralling. I'm glad to hear something new is happening but I'm also happy to hear there will be a new pope.

And no opinion on this new thing? Why happened? Good or bad? (Besides being good foe newness) etc.

I feel honored he is deciding to do this in the month I turn 20 in. I like new things and this is a chance for a new man to be part of an age old tradition. Besides now that my eyes are open to this world I want to experience the new feeling of all the celebratory atmosphere that will rain down from such a lovely land as the Vatican. I am full of joy to hear news like this even if it will never effect me.

I'm wondering is there a medical condition that prompted him to step down?

Sad to hear that.

Yes there was a medical condition. His doctors adviced him to do so, and any futuing flying on a plane was out of the question, amont other health issues which some have not been disclosed as of yet.

The combination of his health and age makes it a good choice. At 86 he realizes the need to slow it down, smart move.

I am hoping they pick a young guy to fill the space. Someone who will actually take charge and do something. The Catholics have a large influence around the world. But a poor reputation

He can't handle being on throne anymore while being known for helping some of the sickest and most vile criminals escape. He may have health problems but that is just the excuse he needs.

He is old, and apparently doesn't feel physically nor mentally capable of the job. But who knows? There may be other reasons considering the scandals in the church. Only time will tell. Interesting nevertheless.

I think he is very ill. His appearance has changed drastically. He may have some sort of terminal illness.

It's his concession to the all seeing eye. Mordor is at his gates and he doesn't think cross hairs look good on him. Jk, I dunno it's k. He looks like a reptile, I'd retire too. He probably looks at his assistant every day and is like "the PILL doesn't even work any more! Why won't I die already? If god keeps this up I'm going atheist!"

I don't really care. It has nothing to concern me with.
