Hmmmm... being agnotistic, not sure if i should let this thread go or if it should be confined to the Lounge thread. I'll recuse myself and let my fellow mods decide.

Let's not turn this into a pissing contest. I like not having to moderate this board much

I guess the Pope wasn't perfect after all - here he is in the penalty box

I respect everybody's opinion Reaper and I know this is a hockey board. It was a particular moment when I started this thread, and I thought it was a good idea to do it. About me, I'm Catholic, but not a die-hard catholic. This Pope was a great man, a man who did a lot of amazing things, who always fought for pour people and for freedom. In these days a lot of people is coming to Rome to celebrate him and his life, and not all of them are catholic. He was just a great man, not only a great Pope.

BTW, this wasn't a thread to debate.
David is the moderator and wants to move this thread? Fine.
But why posting something like "I'm agnostic, I don't know what to do?"


I don't want to offend anybody, but it was a pretty useless post.

Giving reason why I was recusing myself.

Further, the reason I am apprehensive about these threads is it opens the door to "Mother Teresa just died (I realized she's already dead, just using it as illustration) and we need a thread", "Nelson Mandela just died and we need a thread", "Joe Blow just died and we need a thread". (i.) This is a hockey, and loosely other sports, forum; and (ii.) The Lounge Thread was created specifically for topics of this nature. But knowing that I am agnostic, I did not think I could make a proper decision regarding this thread so I had to recuse. I apologize if you don't understand that.

Personally, I prefer many little threads that I can ignore rather than the lounge thread. I won't read it because there's too many posts in there and it would take me days to catch up on the conversation. Plus, lounge threads also start to be like lounges, big, noisy, and no direction. We get off topic enough in threads to begin with (see Brian Boyle, A prayer for a man who was one of us), we don't need an entire thread for getting off topic. Seeing as how there's only about 20 people who post here, having a brief memorial for somebody as momentous as JP2 isn't going to change a whole lot IMO. Then again, that's why I don't have supreme executive power.
