Usama Bin Laden's Killing - What A Catholic Should Know

Jimmy Akin of Catholic Answers has the Catholic perspective that all Catholics should be aware of. It's easy to go long with the crowds and sometimes we can stray from Catholic teaching.

So here we go...thanks Jimmy.

Killing bin Laden: Catholic Perspective

So it has been announced that Osama bin Laden is dead.
The twisted, evil mastermind responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent human beings has been shuffled off this mortal coil.
This provides a measure of justice. Not full justice. That’s in God’s hands. But some justice.
Of course, Our Lord’s command to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us still applies. We must hope that Osama bin Laden repented at the last second, or that he had been crazy for years and not responsible for his actions, or that God might provide for his salvation in some other way.
And we must remember that Christ himself died to make salvation possible for all men, Osama bin Laden included.
