The key to this man’s understanding is in this statement from him: “how does it [our celebration of bin Laden’s death] make us any better than those in the Mideast who celebrate when America falls? This is not a Christian perspective.”
Now that’s a dead fish that’s been sitting in the sun for three days; it stinks to high heaven. Well, Beck is a professional Christian, in the sense that this is how he makes his pieces of silver.
O’Reilly took Beck to task, but his heart didn’t seem to be in it. O’Reilly’s a Catholic, and perhaps gets collar fright when confronting a priest. Regardless of his collar, Edward Beck comes across as just another mindless liberal who does not know the difference between good and evil. And, what is worse, claims the high ground of “a Christian perspective” to further his moral equivalence.
Cheering the death of a mass murderer is right and proper. Why? Because that man, OBL, will never again be able to kill or maim innocents. Truly, something to cheer. Where’s the “Christian love?” Love does not mean you don’t protect innocents. Love does not mean you don’t take whatever steps are needed to do so.
On the other hand, cheering the deaths of innocent men, women, and children is what barbarian savages in the Middle East do. We don’t.
