First of all, as Christians, we should not be rejoicing at the murder of OBL. We should not be condoning murder, or whatever methods were used to extract the information used to get him. So, let’s not. On the other hand, one reason why countries should not be involved in religion is that, in order to protect the populace, sometimes they must use extraordinary methods to extract information. And sometimes nations must do things, like murder, to keep the populace safe.
So I am ambivalent about Bin Laden’s death. We must never do evil in order to perpetuate a good. That’s solid Christian doctrine. Cannot justify killing someone, especially one man, in order to stop terrorism.
All that aside, do we really think that killing the man responsible for 9/11 is going to stop terrorism? Eh, probably not.
Enough of the celebrating, be glad he’s dead and be done with it.
