it's the same as asking : "do we need a new ayatollah" too much attention is wasted on an medevol institute. whatever the catholics do is their business , as long as it doesnt interfere with mine. he's not the 'leader of the christians' he's just a figurehead for the church of rome which has always been an institute of oppression, despite the many good things (art, charity, a sense of community etc.) religeon CAN bring. let them have their old dude in drag saying 'wise' stuff like the buddhists have their own giggling homophobe in an orange dress traveling at the expense of his devotees, but please let him stay out of people's bedrooms, their schools and their politics. oh and a general apology for all the fracked up stuff would be nice, same as financial transparance and compensation for those who were wronged, and for GOD's sake open up your libraries and art-storages to the world.
It is characteristic of the human. Every community needs a leader. There is always someone who wants the power. Sometimes the leader is not the true leader, other persons are acting behind the scenes. But the power is still in the hands of an individual or several individuals. No Pope is like a country without a president. Members of the community would be lost. The common point with animals is that human needs also a leader. And a person would fight for control ...
