I grew up as a Catholic so I can only say that the Catholic church may not publically oppose other religions or their leaders but this doesn't mean they agree or support the other's views. A smiling photo between the Pope and HH Dahli Lama means only that they agreed to pose together. To assume that it means they are good friends is unrealistic. The Pope doesn't have friends...to millions of people the Pope is the infallible representative of Jesue Christ here on earth.
Peace to all,
