Even Skeletor Has Friends

I've got multiple tabs up right now as I watch the world wait for President Obama to confirm what all the news stations are blaring: Osama bin Laden is dead.

I'm kind of appalled at what is going on in my news feed on Facebook. People are celebrating the death of another human being.

Yes, I know, 9-11, USS Cole, and a hundred other atrocities can be placed at his feet. But still, he's a human being, and people are lighting fireworks and popping champagne.

The only thing I can think to say is this:

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
