The Death of Ian Brady

Evil that cannot be redeemed?

This Sunday not many preachers will be eager to choose the death in prison of Moors murderer Ian Brady as the subject for their weekly sermon. They will have heard that the family of one of his victims damned him to “rot in hell” on hearing the news, and they might presume that most of their congregation would concur. Indeed, they might think that the doctrine of hell, a place where the wicked are punished for all eternity, was necessary precisely because of cases like this.
