What is Pope John Paul II's Legacy

This was Time magazine's question of the week and here is my response
There will be many points of view.
His supporters will remember his firm convictions for speaking out against communism AND the 'greed' aspects of capitalism, his modernization of the Catholic church and his anti-abortion and pro-life views.
He has been very openminded by his reaching out to Jews and speaking out against the Irag war.This will be remembered by many.

His critics will frown upon his views against condom use, anti-abortion .Some will also blame him for his part in supressing evidence in the recent sex abuse scandals of the church and for his forgiveness of Cardinal Law.
