I do think that John Paul II was a great man and did much for the world at large in his quietly efficient and patient manner.
There is clamour amongst the world's Catholics to beatify him (make him a saint) as soon as possible - fast-tracking if you will... and to append "the Great" to his name - only the third Pope in history to be referred to as such.
I think that the suffixed "the Great" is imbued simply by common usage and may probably be taken "as read"... but how about that beatification ?
What do we as a multidenominational, multitheistic forum think about it ?
John Paul II did very much to include other religious beliefs, rather than perpetuate the old Catholic dogma that "if you ain't Catholic, you'll burn" - should not other religious houses recognise his good works on a pantheistic basis ?
Ladies & Gentlemen... your considered thoughts please...
