"An eye for an eye..."

editors note, this blog idea is paraphrased in parts from Bill Maher's show Real time,May 13Th,. 2011, on HBO.)

The United states is so called, 'A Christian Nation," how ironic that many of the 'so called Christians' are cheering and celebrating the death of Bin Laden.

The New testament throughout speaks of forgiveness, loving thy enemy and neighbor, and turning the other cheek. If your a follower of the guy that repeatedly said , "love your enemies, you need to come up with a new name for yourselves and should not call yourselves Christian's.

Shooting thy enemy is not exactly what Jesus would do. "Gandhi gets to call  himself a Christian,  in fact Gandhi was so Christian he was Hindu."

Calling yourselves a Christian and rejoicing in killing according to Bill Maher is like "Joining Green Peace and hating whales."

President Obama said recently on 60 minutes, "Anyone who questions Bin Laden's assassination should have their head examined," this coming from our president who's says he receives scripture on his blackberry first thing every morning.

Don't get me wrong, I am elated Bin Laden is finally officially dead, but find it ironic that so many calling themselves Christians elate in killing.

I am Jewish, we believe in an eye for an eye,  which in the death of Bin Laden was fully warranted.
