Another Homily from a Corporate Source

Billionaire Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has called for 'understanding, empathy and love' in order to defeat terrorism.

Zuckerberg lives behind the wall of a mansion with sixteen armed bodyguards on 24 hour duty.  Still, I'm glad he can offer his naive illumination to us from time to time.  Although, I would value such observations a bit more coming from, say, an actual clergyperson working in the Middle East.

Shortly after September 11th, I listened to a similar homily from an actual holy man who suggested that we should "bomb with love" the members of Al Qaeda.  Again, sagacity from a fellow who lived a privileged life behind gates and walls.  [Interestingly, he would later get into trouble for trying to "bomb with love" some of the young workers laboring at his cathedral.]
