quote of the day

“I have often said that one of the principal causes of terrorism is the issue of loss. People resort to violence when they feel something has been taken from them. Giving love to them, instead of returning violence with violence, is returning to them something that has been lost. Giving love can radically change even seemingly hopeless situations. This is why Jeus tells us to love those who do not love us. Much of my work in religious sectarianism is simply about showing love to the unlovely.”

            -Andrew White, the bishop of the Anglican cathedral in Baghdad. He has worked with and befriended many terrorists and perpetrators of great crimes, in Israel/Palestine and in Iraq, and is widely recognized for his work across all boundaries, for peace.
