We live in sick times…

I’m going to skip commentary on the morality of extrajudicial killings, whether this guy deserved it (or if anyone can ever “deserve it”), whether there is a better way, or who’s right and who’s wrong. That is subject to nuance and could fill a few pages to say the least.

All I can say is this (via Twitter and Facebook) is sick:

Celebrating death, anyone’s death no matter how bad they are, is twisted. Ok. I’ll give you maybe Adolf Hitler, Stalin, or someone similar, but in the last 100 years, you can probably count them on one hand.

Moreover to do it like it was some Hollywood billboard, complete with faux-distressed type is just off the rails.

That every news outlet isn’t decrying this, that ever “civilized” western citizen (including Israelis) aren’t horrified says just how far our collective psyches have been perverted.

Death as entertainment. Life so cheap. Would our god, the god of Christ and the Jews, treat life so irreverently (yes, I am an agnost at best, but I was raised Judeo-Christian and thus hold certain expectations of my brethren)?
