Is it ok to be happy for a assassination? Christians

I am of course referring to Osama Bin Ladens death. I have been raised to NEVER be happy for the death of a person no matter what, but what he did to thousands of innocents, what he controlled and put into play. I feel he deserved it, that he got justice, karma, wtfe you know it as. But at the same time my moms voice is in my head telling me not to be happy that justice got served so I'm kinda torn...but at the same time I can't help but be happy that he's gone I know it won't end with him but hopefully we can lessen it ya know?

  • Seriously, I could hug you right now. I was just on the phone talking to my mom about this! We feel like we are the ONLY ones who feel this way. I'm not a part of any religion, but my mom is a Christian. I am so glad you asked this. I feel like this...yes, he deserved it, yes, it was necessary, and yes, I know why people are relieved. But...something inside of me just cannot actually celebrate someone's death, no matter how horrible of a person they are. I feel like since God forgives, even if I can't forgive, I should still not cheer for their death. I'm not looking down on anyone who is, I just feel wrong doing it myself, deep down. I almost feel like I'M thinking wrongly, because everyone else is toasting to his death and I feel wrong doing it.

  • I get voted down because I feel wrong celebrating a death? Really? I'm not saying that it's a bad thing that he was killed. I'm not saying I wish he wasn't. I'm just saying that I feel wrong cheering about a death, that's all. So, who voted me down? Care to say?

    Answer by LovingSAHMommy at 12:45 AM on May. 2, 2011

  • I voted you up... I feel the same. I'm the same as you... I see why this was necessary, I see why people are happy, I see that this was an individual who caused the death of thousands and sometimes there is nothing you can do with a mad dog but shoot it so it ceases to be a threat. But I can't lift a drink to someone's death. Not even this one.
