LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Don’t compromise principles over bin Laden death

Ashlee Bradley

The death of Osama bin Laden is definitely a victory for the individuals and families who were impacted by 9/11 and others who were impacted by his cruel treatment and plots of terrorism.

While this is true and I understand the significance of his death, I will not rejoice in the loss of a life. We are all God’s children and in His eyes, all sins are equal.

How can anyone say they believe in God and believe in His word, yet rejoice in a life lost? This is a major contradiction. If you are going to celebrate that some of bin Laden’s wrongdoings against others will be partially justified and that the families will have some closure because of his death, do that. But don’t compromise your religious principles and celebrate for the wrong reasons.
