Was @R_Mendenhall in the wrong?

Personally I do not believe what Mendenhall said was wrong. For people to say they are Christians and celebrate in another person death, is far from an example of being a Christian. For people to say because you do not celebrate, that your being anti american or not supporting the troops is even worst. If a person chooses to live by the word and forgive this man of his wrong and put things in Gods hand, they should not be look down on. Leviticus 19:17-18 says,

'You shall not hate your brother in your heart. You shall surely rebuke your neighbor, and not bear sin because of him. You shall not take vengeance nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.

So if I look at the verse, and I chose to forgive this man for 9/11 and chose not to celebrate his death, people going look at me as a terrorist instead of a man that follows the word. Deuteronomy 2:35 reads,

"Vengeance is Mind, and recompense; Their foot shall slip in due time; For the day of their calamity is at hand, And the things to come hasten upon them"

So lets say God decided to take his vengeance, are we not just suppose to witness and carry on. Why hate this man so much, 1 John 4:20 reads,

"If someone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?"

Not going go any further, but all I am going say is, no one can say a person does not support the troops by choosing not to celebrate a man's death.
