You bet! I listen when most people talk because I want to know what others are thinking. I may not agree, but I will listen. I don't revere the Pope and I often don't agree, but I listen. Does what he has to say matter to me? Not anymore than anyone else. I value the opinion of certain people in my life--those people whom I know love me for me and those that I know will have my back. I value the opinion of others because it is there opinion not because it matters to me personally or because I think they are right "no matter what".
He is the Pope and, like the President, or, the Queen, I respect and honor them because of their position, their office, not because I always agree, etc.
