Some things don't change

"No, you'll meet with some so preposterously religious that they will sooner endure the broadest scoffs even against Christ himself than hear the Pope or a prince be touched in the least, especially if it be anything that concerns their profit;" From the preface to The Praise of Folly, written over 500 years ago. (For the honor of truth, I must admit that a different edition at Project Gutenberg translates the sentence in a way less obviously tribal.)

While we're on the subject of Facebook, I notice that movies of cute dogs are actually more common on my feed than pictures of cute cats.
