A unilateral commitment from above that one can be “saved” and forgiven for any sinful acts of deviance. Does this religious safety net genuinely apply to everyone?  Redemption without exception? A  “get out of hell jail” free card waiting in the wings for all?   Even for those who commit murderous acts so vile, on-lookers turn their heads away in shame? Can we uphold and stand in this truism in any circumstance, including serial killers?  As forgiving beings, do we have the capacity to sincerely welcome these spiritual evil-castaways back into …
