    No, really, I'm serious. I really wonder some days where Ballmer and Gates are at in their faith. Giving to the poor is nice and all that, but could ultimately be meaningless depending on what angle you take.

    I think it's awfully noble of them Smiley I wish more rich people had the same perspective in life. Education is extremely important, and whether they are religious men or not, I'm thankful that they understand that, and are trying to make this world a better place.

    Gates is doing great things for the world, and I am very happy to see him focus on the big issues out there.

    Oh I agree the generosity is great, and does help a lot of people in the process. However, in terms of the Law its kind of irrelevant.

    Well, yeah... Smiley But I don't think Gates is a Believer anyway. Just a "good" (what we define that word to mean) guy Smiley
