Sounds Like Something Jesus Would Say

This quote below has been circulating amongst my liberal facebook friends.

‎"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that" - Martin Luther King, Jr

I don't know if any of these facebook friends are christian, but I know for sure one of them is not. Doesn't this quote sound like scripture? Don't my liberal friends know they sound like religious zealots when they write a quote like this in light of what has happened? I wrote to one of my goofy friends "It is not OBL's death I celebrate, but Praxidike herself" who is the Goddess of exacting justice. Even if we are the most powerful country and the most "progressive" we still have a right to be happy when justice is served. CELEBRATE!
