Don’t celebrate death of bin Laden: Vatican


The Vatican has called on Christians not to celebrate the killing of Osama Bin Laden.


Vatican asks to not celebrate killing of Bin Laden, fears it will increase hate (Rome Reports/YouTube)



  1. Jim says:

    Do I celebrate the death of Osama Bin Laden? No. Am I relieved that the mastermind behind 9/11 and a source of monstrous evil in the world and a threat to the security of the Western world has met his creator? You betcha!

    Woe to those who call evil good
    and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    (Isaiah 5:20)

  2. Mary Ann Hilgeman, CSJ says:

    I agree. We shouldn’t celebrate anyone’s death. Just as I pray for those who were killed or had loved ones killed in 9/11, I also pray for Bin Laden and the members of his family. Even though he perpretated many horribly evil acts, we don’t know what was inside him or what may have been the cause of his hatred.

  3. Dave in San Juan Capistrano CA says:

    As hard as this is to say — may God have mercy on his soul.

  4. Donna says:

    This is why my heart has been so heavy since the news. Thank you for such a quick response from The Pope!!!!

  5. Kathleen Sabetti says:

    This is something that needs to be said. The crowds celebrating because of his death remind me of the crowds that celebrated the destruction caused by the 9/11 attacks. Totally unChristian!

    • Joseph Basehart says:

      The President said the death of Osama Bin Laden was an act of justice. I feel it was an act of revenge for the 9/11 attacks. This is not a cause for celebration, but more for mourning the death of more human life.
