I find it ironic that the beatification of Pope John Paul II was sandwiched in between such historic events as a royal wedding on Friday and now, Sunday night, the announcement that Osama Bin Laden is dead.

To millions of Catholics and others, around the world, Pope John Paul II was a man of historic proportions -- a saintly man, to be sure.

As the world media were focused all day Friday and all the weekend on the wedding of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton, many Catholics and others were anxiously waiting to hear some coverage of the beatification of their beloved Pope John Paul II. Just as reports about the Pope's beatification were beginning to come on the news Sunday night, the news broke that President Barack Obama was about to address the nation from the White House.

By approximately 10:38 p.m. CST, the news was out that, indeed, Osama Bin Laden had been killed. It has been almost 10 long years since 9-11, and the United States declared war on "terror" and began hunting him down.

Perhaps Blessed John Paul II would be only too willing to sacrifice his moment in heavenly glory for the announcement that the man who demanded the killing of innocents in the name of "god" had finally been silenced.

We hope to hear more soon about Bin Laden's demise, but we know that Blessed John Paul II will have the rest of eternity to share the glory of God.

For those that are uncomfortable with the celebration in NY and all over about this incident of death, well, it is biblical that when a victory over an enemy came, the victors danced and made music. For example, when David killed ... More ›

An Appropriate reaction to the death of Bin Laden....Hack his body into 50 pieces, bury one of the pieces in each state of the USA with a huge sign that says, "This is the just ending for an evil, cruel maniac...Beware, ... More ›

Appropriate: Would have been to take Bin Laden's body, put it in a cruise missile, fill the void with pigs blood, and fire it back at Pakistan. Just Sayin'

As long as justice and injustice have not terminated their ever renewing fight for ascendancy in the affairs of mankind, human beings must be willing, when need is, to do battle for the one against the other. - John Stuart Mill

What I definitely don't want to see is the US put any insane spin on Pakistan's involvement in all of this. It is crystal clear that Pakistan is an enemy to the US- for whatever diplomatic reason our nation is unwilling ... More ›

SC are you serious? Get a life. Appropriate behaviour? Whatever. Every terrorist in the world should see that and understand our resolve. There is a consaquence for attacking the United States.

I'm a bit uncomfortable at seeing the throngs of people in Washington and New York's Time Square dancing in the streets. I'm not sure this is appropriate behavior, nor do I think it will help our image around the globe.
