Taking Out bin Laden: Dalai Lama For, Archbishop of Canterbury Against

By reputation, Buddhists lean toward the flaky side. Yet even the Dalai Lama is far less of a moonbat than the dhimmi heading up the remnants of the Church of England. The demise of Osama bin Laden gave Rowan Williams another chance to side with Islam against civilization:

The Archbishop of Canterbury has said that the killing of an unarmed Osama bin Laden by US special forces left him with a "very uncomfortable feeling". … Asked about any moral justification for the al-Qaida leader's death in Pakistan, he [bleated]: "I think the killing of an unarmed man is always going to leave a very uncomfortable feeling, because it doesn't look as if justice is seen to be done."

In contrast,

On Monday a Vatican spokesman, Father Federico Lombardi, said that while Christians "do not rejoice" over a death, it serves to remind them of "each person's responsibility before God and men".

The Dalai Lama also struck a contrast to Williams:

Asked about bin Laden's death at an event in Los Angeles, where the Buddhist leader was at the start of a trip to five US states, he said the al-Qaeda chief may have deserved compassion and even forgiveness.
But, cited by the LA Times, he said: "Forgiveness doesn't mean forget what happened. If something is serious and it is necessary to take counter-measures, you have to take counter-measures."

The term counter-measures in this context means blowing the terrorist rat's brains across the wall. Well done, SEAL Team Six. As for Pigswilliams, he shouldn't be so sure that the Islamic crocodile will eat him last.

Williams's poorly connected head has come loose again.
