A Thought Experiment Concerning bin Laden's Death

Imagine your spouse was brutally murdered by a hardened criminal. Imagine the day of his sentencing; he is given the death penalty by lethal injection. Years pass and the day of his death arrives. Given the option, you may even watch the event, perhaps to see justice completed in his cold and stiffening corpse. Would one think you loved your spouse little or much if you left the prison with cheers and celebrations?

Interesting no one has commented on this. For me, Bin Laden's death was a study. Very interesting to see reactions especially among evangelical Christians, shaped almost entirely by stories other than the gospel story.
