It is hard to care or even take them serious with such idiotic statements saying condoms are bad, gay is immoral etc.
The believers will believe anything he has to say regardless of how unlikely/irrational/idiotic and the non believers will go on as if nothing has changed.

Like Kelly Bundy once said...case of rum, case of rum (Que Sera Sera)

It matters if you care about issues in the rest of the world. I don't feel the Pope whoever it is has much impact on the day to day lives of people here in the U.S though. I was raised Catholic and I know a lot of people who still identify as Catholics wish that a Pope would come in that would make the church more "modern" and moderate so to them it is important.

Default Should It Matter To Atheists/Agnostics Who Is Pope?

It matters because the Pope is just as much a cultural icon as he is a religious one. Culture belongs to us all.

Regardless of who's wearing it, the Pope's hat is miter than the sword.
