Pope John Paul II

Jessica made a good point on her journal yesterday.

Since the Pope died a few days ago, I purposely stopped reading the news. It’s events like these that really force me hate the media. It has nothing to do with the Pope. Hell, I don’t really know much about the guy… But all this news seems a bit much and what’s the deal with not having a casket? I know having an open casket is foreign to us Jews, but being moved around on a platform with no casket? Seems kinda creepy to me… The Jews don’t have a be-all-and-end-all type character like the Pope, but I am sure we’d never prance our dead leader around like that. And it’s not to say we’re better. Who am I to say that. I think that might be one thing religion did teach me. But to me it seemed disrespectful. I guess it’s a Catholic thing and something I will never fully understand.

Religion is funny.

if it doesn’t sell, it’s not creative.
