Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg made a stunning announcement Christmas Day that stunned social media-ites on both the political left and right — he made public the fact that he was no longer an atheist.
Not only did he announce his change in beliefs on Christmas Day, but he wished everyone a Merry Christmas.
“Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah from Priscilla, Max, Beast and me!” he posted Christmas Day. ” Seeing the moments of joy and family shared on Facebook today is one of my favorite things about our community. I hope you’re surrounded by friends and loved ones, and that you have a chance to reflect on all the meaningful things in your life.”
“May the light of your friendships continue to brighten your life and our entire world,” he concluded.
One of the top commenters asked him what many were thinking: Aren’t you an atheist?
His response was one of the best he has ever given.
“No,” he replied. “I was raised Jewish and then I went through a period where I questioned things, but now I believe religion is very important.”
It’s tricky to be optimistic when someone says that they put their trust in “religion,” but it’s also difficult to be less than enthusiastic to hear such a public, influential leader in society renounce atheism in favor of a creator.
This is especially true of the creator of Facebook — with a site so integral to current society, it’s good to have one more reason to believe that our freedom of religious expression is, at least for now, safe.
Who knows when he came to his new religious belief, but one thing is certain — you don’t renounce atheism unless something has changed in your life, and the deliberate inclusion of “Merry Christmas” leads me to hope that God still has a work to do in Zuckerberg.
The fact that his saying “Merry Christmas” annoyed some leftists was just gravy.
