Reactions to Osama

 And going a bit farther….

What really grinds my gears (so to speak) about people being idiots about Bin Laden’s death (there are obviously bound to be idiots when stuff like this goes down) is that the most horrible remarks are coming from the so-called Christians, and whoever was in the group outside the White House shouting ‘USA! USA! USA!’

So, let me get this straight, just for clarification purposes of course. You people (Christians) will vehemently defend the right of a baby (fetus, couple of cells hanging out together, etc.) to be born yet will very much rejoice at the death of anyone outside the womb who you disagree with? Now, Bin Laden was hardly a Mother Theresa (the comparison to of which you won’t understand because she was Catholic and of course we all know that Catholics aren’t Christians, but I digress) yet if you are willing to rejoice in a death you are seemingly admitting that some people either should be killed or are at the very least acceptable to be killed. Those people being of course non-Christians non-Jews, because they’re the chosen ones, that have in your opinion done ‘bad’ things and most likely wear some kind of head covering. The chances are that your mythical Jesus wouldn’t agree with this behaviour so I suggest you cut it out for the sake of your own credibility.

This is going to be one of those situations where the whole ‘even Christians make mistakes and partake in behaviour that is un-Godly’ argument is used. This is fine, but it seems pretty obvious that there is something in Christian ideology which causes A LOT of people that follow said ideology to react in the same way. In the spirit of continuous improvement, perhaps this discrepancy should be given some actual discussion rather than just owing it all up to certain individuals partaking in un-godly behaviour.

All I’m saying is, I don’t see any Europeans jumping for joy or freaking the flip out because “Like OMG he’s soooo dead!”….

…and failing to acknowledge the can of worms that comes with killing the head of a major organization without dismantling the rest of it.


A Harry Potter comparison and a subtle hint that there’s going to be a loooong road ahead until he’s finally dead (i.e. situation solved)? Priceless!

*Edit*

(New York Times) 

I guess we Americans get it from our government, seen here, crowding around to watch Bin Laden be murdered. Looks like Friday night at the local AMC 30 to me! Hillary looks particularly scared so it must be the latest Saw. Unless it’s The Notebook or A Walk to Remember and the protagonists have just died.
