Osama Bin Ladin

Osama Bin Ladin is dead.  May he be fairly judged by Jesus Christ.
You can figure out that he is 2 degrees from John Paul II without
my help.

These celebrations of Bin Laden's death are inappropriate, uncivilized, insensitive, and unChristian.  I am ashamed of my
countrymen who have indulged in this hateful conduct.  Look at the faces, these people were children when the 9/11 attacks occurred.  These are not victims' families.  They are yahoos.
Death, especially of someone who was unrepentant, is not a celebratory affair.
This is not a
sporting event, this is a mass murderer who died.
Sending a care-package to a service man or woman, caring for families of
the victims of Bin Laden, giving blood like we did on 9/11, making our
communities cleaner and safer, these are things we can do to make our world a
better place.  Mr. Bin Laden made the world worse for his presence.  We can
serve the memories of the dead by taking this opportunity to make the world better.
Instead, people have chosen to get drunk, vandalize, and celebrate death.
Soldiers suffer greatly when they see battle.  Making sure the VA has adequate funding
is a far better use of time than drunken celebrations!

War is not a birth or a wedding.  Nobody wins a war, there is always sadness
and horror.  This little child is growing up in a country at war.  No matter what,
he suffers.  We need to pray for him, for the soldiers, and for the conversion
of all souls.  Let's make Jesus proud of our conduct!
Terrorists treat the bodies of their victims horribly.  By burying bin Laden's body with respect and by NOT releasing the photos of his corpse, President Obama is behaving like a Christian leader.  It is my sincere hope that he will expand this behavior to all life issues as well.  Here's praying!
