1. Los Angeles Times: Dalai Lama Suggests Osama bin Laden’s Death Was Justified
“As the leader of Tibetan Buddhism, the 14th Dalai Lama says he practices compassion to such an extent that he tries to avoid swatting mosquitoes “when my mood is good and there is no danger of malaria,” sometimes watching with interest as they swell with his blood. Yet, in an appearance Tuesday at USC, he appeared to suggest that the United States was justified in killing Osama bin Laden.”

2. Chris Stedman: ‘Darkness Cannot Drive Out Darkness’
“In times of trouble, I often reflect on the unifying words of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.” he wrote. “Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction.”

3. Daniel Burke: Agnostic Explores Faith in ‘There Be Dragons’
“British film director Roland Joffe calls himself a “wobbly agnostic.” But in his Oscar-winning 1986 film The Mission about Jesuit missionaries in South America, and the upcoming film There Be Dragons, faith takes center stage. There Be Dragons, which opens on Friday (May 5), is a historical epic based on the life of Spanish St. Josemaria Escriva, who founded the secretive and powerful Catholic order Opus Dei. The 65-year-old director spoke about faith, free will and what it takes to become a saint.”
