Default Mark Zuckenberg meets with the pope

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/...2ed7?section=&

I do hope he files this time as one where he met one of the most important leaders in the world.

It is something that I do hope he shares with his children, appreciating this meeting with one of the most important leaders of our time

(ANSA) - Vatican City, August 29 - The Vatican said that Pope Francis on Monday met with Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan.
"Together they spoke about how to use communications technology to alleviate poverty, encourage a culture of encounter, and to communicate a message of hope, especially to the most disadvantaged", Vatican press office director Greg Burke said.

I'm so glad they had this meeting. The power of God, combined with FB, will surely eliminate poverty?

They said "alleviate", not "eliminate" poverty.

Do you know the difference between those two words?

Because while Zucker may be FB, this Pope has never presumed to be God.

As far as I know.

Trump, on the other hand, appears to believe he is a god. Most un-American.
