Quote of the Week

Shepherds don't look after sheep because they love them — although I do think some shepherds like their sheep too much. They look after their sheep so they can, first, fleece them and second, turn them into meat. That’s much more like the priesthood as I know it.

Christopher Hitchens

  1. I love Christopher Hitchens. When I hear the Shepherd analogy my mind jumps back to that great Lewis Carroll poem the Walrus and the Carpenter.
