A Cause for Jubilation in Osama Bin Laden’s Death

leave a comment »


Further to the previous post, there may be a cause for jubilation in Osama Bin Laden’s death, but only if the US administration accepts that now there is no further excuse for continuing to kill Afghans in their own country. Let the US and its spineless, opportunistic allies in the “coalition” withdraw from its pointless but murderous game of soldiers in central Asia. Let us see something novel perhaps—Christians objecting to the murder of innocents half way round the world on the religious ground of Christian morality rather than supporting it because it makes them feel big and strong. These constant demonstrations of power are signs of weakness, fear that they are not as invincible as they like to think, and signs of utter moral decrepitude! Let the so-called Christian nation actually start to follow the example of Christ in the gospels. He rejected weapons except as tokens, knew that vengeance spawned vengeance, teaching that to turn the other cheek disarmed the aggressor, and taught that universal love and kindness deprived hatred of living room.

Will it happen? How can it. No Christians in the USA show that they merit the name. None of them have the guts to put Christian morality before the Aztec bloodlust that dominates the smug one-eyed US mentality, impelling them constantly to sacrifice innocents at the altar of self righteous vengeance.
