Requiescat in Pace
While I abhore the death penalty I most assuredly do not think that Saddam Hussein was a good person. I believe that he was a tyrant, a bully, a war criminal and genocidal maniac.
However, I believe that he deserves the same dignity and compassion Christ showed to those who imprisoned and executed him. What Saddam Hussein did, the way he chose to live his life...and, yes, the way he died, saddens and angers me.
Let us pray for the repose of his soul.
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May the souls of the faithful departed
through the mercy of God rest in peace.
Thanks Be to God and Boomer Sooner!
