    not at all like the good old days when william randolph hearst's newspapers knowingly mis-reported the sinking of the maine to incite the spanish american war.

    According to CNN and MSNBC (two very trustworthy sources) confirm that he is not dead, but is in a very poor condition right now.

    I propose this question!What if the pope stays alive in this condition for two years? is someone going to PULL THE PLUG? Has the vatigan got the compassion not to see him suffer? to the end.

    I saw the pope in person when I visited Italy. He go out of the popemobile in St. Peter's Square and walked up the steps all by himself! That was a few years ago though.

    Sorry to say The Pope has died. It has been officically announced.

    No, they will not pull the plug. The church has been emphatic for years that God should be the one to choose the final moment of a human life. Every reasonably attempt was made to keep him alive, and if it ever became apparent that nothing more could be done, I'm sure every attempt was made to keep him comfortable. Suffering is a part of life and the pope himself was very well aware of this. He has even written an encyclical specifically addressing suffering.
