Vilda - The Pope is, for Catholics, the closest thing to a living God they have. So to them, he is pretty much sitting right next to the big guy himself.
Cyclone - Uh, no. All young men in Germany were forcibly made to join the Hitler Youth, and from there could platform up to Nazi. There's a huge difference between the two; do not confuse the Hitler Youth with the Nazis. Get your facts straight before you throw down ignorance.
As for me, well… I was baptized Catholic but I'm pretty much atheist by all accounts. I can appreciate the Pope for who he is, but it's just kind of an 'oh, wow, er, yay Italy' deal for me personally. Just how it is.
