Anyone who is reading this knows that there have been a plethora of reactions to the shooting of Osama Bin Laden - even amongst Catholics. In fact, a question was posed asking if a faithful Catholic could rejoice in the death of Bin Laden, since he was inarguably responsible for so much death and mayhem 10 years ago.
Let's look at Ezekiel 33:11, that says, "as surely as I live, declares the sovereign Lord, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked but rather that they turn from their ways and live". That settles the matter now, doesn't it?
While I rejoice that he can cause no more harm and that Al Qaeda has been stymied a bit, I do not rejoice at his death.
