The blogger at Dating God: Franciscan Spirituality for the 21st Century reminds his readers of some Scripture ( Proverbs 24:17-20: Do not rejoice when your enemies fall, and do not let your heart be glad when they stumble, or else the LORD will see it and be displeased, and turn away his anger from them.) and writes:
As I have already said elsewhere, this is not a moment for “triumph” or “celebration,” contrary to what so many television pundits and so-called patriots will suggest. It is indeed an important moment in our national and global history, something to take seriously and reflect upon, but the celebration of the death of a human being is not what Christians are called to do as Jesus makes quite clear above.
God does not desire vengeance and this is not God’s form of justice.
