I see Pope Ben is at it again. Same as last year, same as the year before that, same for at least 100 years. And the prayers are invariably followed by an outbreak of wars, assassinations, rebellions, tsunamis, earthquakes....you name it.
Now it's one of the most overdone cliches I know, but Einstein defined madness as doing exactly the same thing repeatedly while expecting a different result each time. Maybe Ben should consider the unconsiderable: Maybe his Boss actually doesn't want Peace on Earth.
