7. Actually, I'm not really that cynical a person

In the end, it's more like ... does it matter what the Pope says? I remember that when I was a kid, in the late 50s and early 60s, it seemed to really matter to a lot of people what the Pope said. (What do I know, I'm Jewish, but I had a lot of Catholic friends.) Now it doesn't seem so influential, at least in the US and Europe, where the current Pope is either a joke for his shoes, or an object of interest for Vatican spy goings-on. Maybe the Latin Americans are listening.
