To loosely quote Carla from "Cheers", Christianity isn't a religion for wimps.

Some of its doctrines are pretty difficult, like the one about Christ wanting to bring all men to salvation.

If you're like me and most other human beings, your gut reaction to this news might be to hope that Clifford Olson is suffering the worst torments hell can possibly offer. But this also entails the hope that God is not infinitely merciful, and the hope that another person persisted, to the very end of his life, in the profound and damnable wickedness that resulted in his murdering eleven people. No one would hope for either of those things.

God help and comfort those eleven families.
