After reading Sal Moretti's thoughtful article in Viewpoints regarding Charles Manson ("If Charles Manson's in heaven, what does that mean for the rest of us?, Feb. 26), I had to wait a few minutes for the hair on the back of my neck to un-bristle.

I often wonder what God thinks of all of us down here on earth as time rocks on and God is getting closer to putting us all in our place.

There are as many opinions as there are people, and we're all so flawed that our opinions don't mean much to the one who is going to sort it all out in his time.

We can rest assured that God has the final word. He is the judge, he judges fairly and he hates evil.
