The Boston Bombing: 11

Today is Monday, 6 May 2013.

One hears, ad nauseum, that the USA is a "Christian" country.  So why is it that multitudes so angrily oppose giving the alleged Boston Bomber, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a decent burial on American soil?

Have they never heard of caritas, Latin for "love for others?"  Have they never heard of the words of Jesus, in the Gospel of Mark 12.31:  "Love thy neighbor as thyself?"  I learned the latter very early on in Sunday School.  Was I absent the following Sunday, when Jesus listed the exceptions, beginning with Tamerlan Tsarnaev?

I think not.

Might not these people show a shred of human decency?
