Such cases tend to be a test for how much we really see the Church as the sacrament of Christ’s mercy and how much we see it as a political entity that exists to confirm us in our loves and hates.  I, for one, am delighted to hear this news and hope that he entered into eternal mercy for his sins.  I take such deathbed conversions (like the Good Thief’s or Hans Frank, the Gauleiter of Poland) as great signs of hope.  If those guys can be saved, there’s hope for a jerk like me.
