    Here are two very different views on the question. Both from men of religion, both, it seems, biblically bases....what is your view? Why?

    1.Pastor Rick Warren :
    "I take no pleasure in the death of wicked people.I only want them to turn from wicked ways so they may live" Ezek33:11
    Twitter


    2. Radio commentator Dennis Prager spoke on the subject yesterday:

    "...asked Dennis (Dennis is a Jewish scholar)......he asked Dennis......"Dennis, should we be celebrating the death of Osama Bin Laden?. Doesn't the Bible talk about that?"

    Dennis, after his initial shock asked...."why would you not celebrate the death of the purveyor of death? If that is not worth celebrating what is?"

    He then immediately referred the caller to Exodus 14 and 15 which describes the parting of the Red Sea. When the Israelites saw that the evil, the Egyptians had been swallowed up by the sea....what did they do?

    THEY SANG TO THE LORD and the Lord sure didn't seem to have a problem with it. Exodus 15:
    You know what's interesting....in that celebration song to the Lord about the Egyptians being destroyed?.....they sing "They have been hurled to the sea".....LOL....that's exactly what they did to Osama. He's been hurled into the sea! Yea....read the first text of the song. Exodus 15:1.......Love the Bible! "

    There are evil humans and I will always celebrate when these evil humans can not longer hurt people.

    Some humans are so evil the only time they stop hurting peole is when they die.

    Then I celebrate

    You can use the Bible, the Torah, the Quran, or almost any other religious scripture to justify pretty much any point of view.

    Celebrating the death of a mass murderer is no sin

    I have to say, I'm sort of appalled by how unhinged the left is by Osama's death.

    I don't see his death as a cause for jubilation. For one thing, I'm not one of the retards who thinks that Osama was our primary threat. He's one of MANY, and taking him out at this point isn't going to make much of a difference. I think radical Islam knew he was on borrowed time a long time ago, and subsequently many others stepped up to the plate to take his place so that when the inevitable happened, it would make no difference to them.
