America unites in Osama's death

Osama Bin Laden is dead.

And citizens of America, from Denver to Boston, rich and poor, liberal and conservative, discarded their moral differences and united. Celebrating and rejoicing with each other, Coloradoans welcomed the news, especially the politicians.

Senator Michael Bennet announced: "The architect of this attack was killed thanks to the competent and courageous efforts of American forces."

Likewise, Rep. Ed Perlmutter, declared: "This is a moment of justice. The United States took out an enormous threat to the safety and security of our country."

This is a moment of justice. And a sober moment for self-examination: why is everyone suddenly in favor of the death penalty?

Because when push comes to shove, those who reject God's law still must live by that law.

But now, the moral relativists and liberals welcome the death of a fellow human being! The irony is palpable.

Osama Bin Laden is dead.

And so is moral relativism--at least for now.

Great point. And what about the "potential" reaction of the Muslim community? Why didn't that prevent us from exercising our "right" to take military action? Ridiculously inconsistent thinking.
