Why We Should Love Osama Bin Laden

by Jamie Venes

What is the opposite of love? Is it hatred? Some people claim that the opposite of love is fear - not hatred. But I believe the opposite of love is really less than that. I believe the opposite of love is indifference. I say this because I believe there is evidence that hatred is actually love - distorted. Logically, one must first know and love a person before they can truly hate them. If one has never known and loved the person before, how can they really hate them? My answer is that their hated is out of ignorance. I believe that to really hate Osama Bin Laden, for example, is to be indifferent to him. It is not logical to hate someone you don\'t personally know and love. Some people say that Bin Laden is an evil man. For various reasons, I don\'t agree. I believe the evidence shows that evil does not really exist - only distorted goodness. Although I believe that Bin Laden should be captured and imprisoned, I believe that we should love the man as we should love everyone - unconditionally. This article will present the case why we should believe that Bin Laden is not evil and why we should love him - even pray for him. To lay down the logical foundation for your obligation to love Bin Laden unconditionally (even if he is cutting your head off while you are loving him unconditionally), I want to begin with some quotes from some great thinkers which are related to this discussion. Here they are:

\"There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.\" - Socrates

\"One may say that evil does not exist for subjective man at all, that there exist only different conceptions of good. Nobody ever does anything deliberately in the interests of evil, for the sake of evil. Everybody acts in the interests of good, as he understands it. But everybody understands it in a different way. Consequently men drown, slay, and kill one another in the interests of good.\" -...
