Pope is more like a Judge. He is the final voice and representation of God on the mortal level. Being nice has nothing to do it with it.

Pope John Paul II was beloved by most and he had assassination attempts on his life several times. He was still strict himself and nice. Most Popes have NOT been nice. They're judges.

He is the singular leader of the moral center of half of the western world. He's supposed to be nice.

the pope is supposed to be the chosen man to uphold the values of Catholicism and see that the church proceeds in the correct order. He is supposed to be the man with the strongest connection to God, not necessarily the kindest man. Also, most popes in the past have been more conservative and fundamental Christians, interpreting everything in the bible much more literally and less likely to change traditions that were once seen as acceptable, but are not any longer. However, this new pope is focusing more on the "what would Jesus do?" train of thought instead of trying to interpret everything exactly as it was written.

Just remember kids, the bible was written by man, not god himself.

Well I think the reason it's so cool is that a pope that actually does his job is so rare

IKR. This is how christians, ESPECIALLY the pope, are supposed to be. But now all these freaking Westboro Baptist Churches and gay haters and extremist are giving christianity a bad name. Thank the lord we have a pope that actually does things RIGHT.
