Here's a list of links to stuff worth reading in relation to reaction this week to Osama bin Laden's killing.
Love your Enemies, a post on the blog of 'The Rev and a Dog' has helpful quotes from Martin Luther King on why we should love our enemies and from the Vatican spokesperson a call to reflect on the "serious responsibilities of each person before God and men".
Simon Barrow's blog on 'Ekklesia' has a thoughtful post 'Rejoice? Bin Laden and the Cycle of Violence'
The Archbishop of Canterbury gave a succint answer to a question about whether the killing of Osama Bin Laden was justice for 9/11 and other attacks.
Krish Kandiah, in a post entitled 'Bin Laden is dead: how should we feel?' gave his early reactions under the headings: weep? celebrate? pray? work?
Yesterday, Mark Mardell, from the BBC asked 'Bin Laden Death: Can the Us find closure over 9/11?'
PS. This is really number 6, but my first reaction was 'Can you kill ideas?'
