    Can you rejoice at someones death and still be a good person ? I am have been giving much thought to it and I still working through it so I cant share my thoughts on it yet.

    I'm not sure about rejoicing, but being relieved is quite reasonable.

    of course you can. to be considered a bad person shouldn't be a conclusion that is drawn on one bad thing you do. it has to be many bad things over time. but i would say rejoicing in peoples death would generally be considered a character flaw. but if you're happy that sadaam is dead then i'd say ur not a friend or relative of him
     
  4. One first must define what a good person is.

    One who lives a life striving and acheiving virtue and justice.

    That was one of my earliest thoughts on the matter.

    Do you mean throw a wild "Glad You Are Dead" Party? That would be a bit tasteless. A little chuckle to yourself would be OK.
     
  8. well, dont be happy that the human itself died, but be happy that the monster that overcame it died aswell.

    Now, see, here's something I don't understand. If someone is religious, and believes that when you die, you go to Heaven, a perfect place where your friend or relative or whomever is eteranally happy & at peace, why *wouldn't* you rejoice?

    Hitler dying was justice. Plenty of people were happy.

    I don't understand how you're not supposed to speak ill of the dead. Some people are just a-holes. They deserve it and the world is better off now that they aren't in it any longer.
     
  12. I agree
     
  13. Katie Couric, while interviewing a Marine sniper,asked:

    "What do you feel when you shoot a Terrorist?"



    The Marine shrugged and replied,"A slight recoil."

    That's funny. When Gary Ridgeway was asked what he felt when he killed those hookers, he also replied "nothing".

    Who'da thunk it?

    To clarify, I find it disturbing when anyone can kill someone without feeling anything. It's not badass, it's insane.
     
  19. I dont think I would even consider hitler a person.
