Loss of the Faithful

What does one say when a religious leader dies, especially when the deceased worked to push their exclusive form of religion via political means? How should one feel about the dead knowing they trained tens of thousands to carry out their religious war? Should their earthly crimes and acts of taking ill begotten money be held against them? Is their death a glorious homecoming or God's act of vengance on their tortured soul?

Who died? Is it the latest al Qaeda leader or one of America's fundamentalist Christian faithful? Some days it's hard to know the difference, but rest assured another will rise in his place...
