#SoCs notice

The prompt for this weeks stream of consciousness is notice.
****
this weekend I cant help but notice how much the church is in the news. its because the pope is visiting Ireland this weekend.
I wont be going to see him, I wont even be watching any of the festivities on tv.
its all over our news though. every time I turn on the tv its there. its a little bit frustrating. only because I am not religious and don’t go to church so I really don’t see the fuss and there is a huge fuss being made about it all.
apparently there is going to be half a million people visiting the phoenix park tomorrow to hear the pope say mass.
I’m just glad I don’t live in Dublin. It would be super hard to get around. And everythings so expensive. They’ve really hiked the prices up just because the pope is visiting.
So my question to you all is, would you go see the pope if he visited your country?

  1. No I wouldnt because we go to a pentecostal church. The pope is not like Jesus and an ordinary man. The teachings of the Catholic Church does not correspond to the teachings Jesus gives in the Bible. It also means that we do not judge people. The only thing Jesus wanted is that we should love one another as he loved us. So I do not have anything against people but against wrong teaching.

  2. When John Paul II visited Chicago in ’79, I saw his motorcade. He had come to the South Side to appear at several churches, and the bus I was on (coming home from work) was stopped while he was passing through. As for the current Pope, no, I wouldn’t go out of my way to see him.

  3. Nope. I don’t believe in organised religion anymore. I think those days are gone but I can understand people who follow organised religion: it gives you a secure system.where you know exactly where you stand and what you need to do. That can be very helpful.

  4. No I wouldn’t see the Pope. I’m not religious at all. This includes not conforming to conventional beliefs about morality. I do agree that we should not harm anybody, everybody should get along with everyone else peacefully and people should stay healthy and strong. But there are other beliefs and other religious systems I don’t conform to at all which makes me controversial at times.
