Kayla Jean Mueller, a brave American who had been held hostage by murderous Islamist freaks, is dead. Naturally, rather than honor her Christian service to others—her Christian service to Muslims who were suffering—this is a time for right-wing haters to celebrate their pathological contempt for President Obama.
Commenting on an article on The Wall Street Journal website (“U.S. Confirms Death of American Hostage Kayla Mueller”), the haters wasted no time:
I remind you that those comments were among the first to go up on WSJ’s website this morning. More, and worse, will certainly follow.
I don’t know what kind of mind would want to capture and hold and likely kill a 26-year-old girl doing humanitarian work mostly to benefit Muslims suffering unspeakable horrors. And I don’t know what kind of mind would want to cut off the head of a man who also came to help the victims of violence in and around Syria. And I certainly don’t have the slightest idea what kind of mind would cut off a man’s head and place it on his back and take a picture of the scene and proudly send that picture all around the world.
But whatever kind of mind it is that could conceive and carry out such atrocities, that mind may not be all that far removed from the kind of mind that would make a sick joke and attach the picture above, a picture taken by Islamist killers and doctored for a laugh, to an article announcing the tragic and heartbreaking death of a beautiful American girl, inside and out.
Or the kind of mind that would allow such a photograph to remain on a popular conservative website.
