131. One major difference between your example and what you are
saying is that we didn't kill Falwell. He died on his own without any action on our part. Feeling relieved is not the same thing as rejoicing, which is what you keep referring to.

Your post indicates that you seem to think we somehow killed him.

"Our GI's in WWII didn't "rejoice" in defending themselves and our country against those who attacked us. They didn't feel proud for killing people. They DID feel RELIEF when the war was over, but it wasn't relief in death. It was relief that no more lives would be LOST."

If anything, your example explains what many of us are feeling now that he can no longer blame gay people for everything from 9/11 to tornadoes any more. We are relieved that he can no longer do that, not rejoicing. If anything, the example you used is a contradiction to what you are accusing the OP of doing.
