Let us as Christians, Remember Osama was a child of God as we all are, and He was a brother. This does not excuse his sins, and He needed to be brought down as anyone who commits such terrible sins and be brought to Justice. Then kept so He could do no more harm, as it went he died in the attempt, so be it. God says Vengence is His, so let us put Christian
morals before us daily.
Muslim clerics Monday said Osama bin Laden's burial at sea was a violation of Islamic tradition that may further provoke militant calls for revenge attacks against U.S. targets.
Although there appears to be some room for debate over the burial — as with many issues within the faith — a wide range of Islamic scholars interpreted it as a humiliating disregard for the standard Muslim practice of placing the body in a grave with the head pointed toward the holy city of Mecca.
Sea burials can be allowed, they said, but only in special cases where the death occurred aboard a ship.
“The Americans want to humiliate Muslims through this burial, and I don't think this is in the interest of the U.S. administration,” said Omar Bakri Mohammed, a radical cleric in Lebanon.
A U.S. official said the burial decision was made after concluding it would have been difficult to find a country willing to accept the remains. There also was speculation about worry that a grave site could have become a rallying point for militants.
The U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive national security matters, did not say where the burial took place.
U.S. President Barack Obama said the remains had been handled in accordance with Islamic custom, which requires speedy burial.
But the Lebanese cleric Mohammed called it a “strategic mistake” that was bound to stoke rage.
In Washington, CIA director Leon Panetta warned that “terrorists almost certainly will attempt to avenge” the killing of the mastermind behind the Sept. 11 attacks.
“Bin Laden is dead,” Mr. Panetta wrote in a memo to CIA staff. “Al-Qaeda is not.”

Glorious Easter to Each and All.
On this day Christ is Risen. As Christ, Jesus is the Word; the Alpha and Omega (the Beginning and End).
Jesus lived 33 years, was crucified, lay seemingly for 3 days and was resurrected. Yet Christ is eternal. From beginning to end. And therein is the question, is Jesus the crucible, the cup of the Last Supper in which the Christ is contained, or are the body of Jesus and the Christ One? Is Christ and God the Father One?
Most of us consider life to be day to day actions; awake, get dressed go to work, get groceries on the way home, play with our children, eat dinner, and at the end of the day, go to sleep.
Time and space. Just this simple. Yet here on this day all life is made divine, pardon me for saying so, there can be no other conclusion. Christ is Eternal. There is no evolution in Eternity, only in time and space.
If you need Bible references for my statements, please email me and I will answer.

PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS
The official death toll following Friday’s massive earthquake and tsunami has topped 1,200, but one police official has been quoted as saying that it could end up passing 10,000. It is, as Prime Minister Naoto Kan described it, the biggest crisis Japan has faced since World War II.
Speaking to reporters on Sunday, Kan said: ‘The earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear incident have been the biggest crisis Japan has encountered in the 65 years since the end of World War II…We're under scrutiny on whether we, the Japanese people, can overcome this crisis.’
An estimated 2 million homes in Japan’s north are said to be without power as the temperature there plunges. About 1.4 million are currently without running water, according to Reuters. Here in Tokyo, supermarkets started to run low on fresh produce like eggs, bread and fresh fruit and vegetables, but most stores appeared to still be open as normal, as were many cafes and restaurants.
There’s stress and concern, not least over the uncertain situation surrounding the ongoing efforts to prevent a meltdown at power plants in Fukushima, but no panic. Still, the French Embassy has contacted its citizens in Tokyo and recommended that they leave the Kanto region for the time being.
All eyes now, though, are undoubtedly on nuclear power plants crippled by the magnitude 9 earthquake and tsunami. News about what’s going on at the reactors is sketchy and there have been a number of what seem like conflicting reports.
According to the BBC, the country’s nuclear energy agency ‘has declared a state of emergency at a second nuclear facility, at Onagawa, after excessive radiation levels were recorded there. It said cooling systems at all three reactors at the Onagawa complex, which were automatically shut down after the earthquake and tsunami, were functioning properly and the rise in local radiation levels might have been caused by the Fukushima leak.’
The Daily Yomiuri, meanwhile, reported that almost 200 people might have been exposed to radioactivity from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.
‘The Fukushima prefectural government and the nuclear safety agency confirmed that 22 people had been exposed to radioactive material because of substances temporarily released from the No. 1 plant's No. 1 reactor after its hydrogen explosion Saturday afternoon,’ the paper reported this evening.
And, as if all this wasn’t enough, the country’s weather agency reported that a volcano in the south of the country has started spewing ash. AP notes that the Shinmoedake volcano has resumed activity after a couple of quiet weeks, although it’s unclear if the latest activity is related to Friday’s quake.
As time has slid by much has happened in the world and we have heard less and less about Japan. I encourage everyone to keep our brothers and sisters in their prayers.
