I have been thinking about a lot of people's faith and how really I believe it is a delusion people have. I have thought of a good example of the lack of faith in today’s society and just wanted some others opinions on this. This involves the catholic religion, I'm not going to try to be offensive to any Catholics and I know little about Catholicism so if you are catholic feel free to correct anything about my dribble. I was thinking about how the Pope is paraded around in a bulletproof booth...the pope mobile I'm sure you have heard it called. Like I said, I know little about Catholicism, but from what I understand the Pope is as holy as any human being alive today could possibly be. God's main man here on earth so to speak. Now I understand the reason behind the bulletproof pope mobile. Pope John Paul II was attempted to be assassinated in 1981 and the Popes has been protected by bulletproof glass every since. To me, if anyone or this forsaken earth should have faith that God will protect them from harm, it should be the Pope! The Pope should have thought "The assassin missed because God protected me. It was divine intervention and God will always protect me until he wills it that I should die. No assassins bullet will harm me as my faith in God will always protect me" or something along those lines. Didn't happen, instead it gets a bulletproof Pope mobile. To me that is saying the Pope, the holiest of the holy, puts more faith in bulletproof glass then his faith in God. If the Pope himself doesn't have faith that God would protect him what chance does any other human being have? Not that I put any faith in God what-so-ever, but to me this shows that human faith is mainly a delusion, a sham. If a person of faith was being shot at today and had the option of being behind bulletproof glass or holding a Bible (or religion object of their choice) how many people do you think would actually choose to hold the Bible. (that's a rhetorical question by the way) But I would just like some feedback I guess from anyone's opinion on this, especially someone who has religious values and any Catholics opinions as well. Just to satisfy my curiosity.
