Norwegian bishops were divided when asked whether Anders Behring Breivik could get into heaven, according to reports.



Saying, “Obviously, the answer is yes”, the Bishop of Stavanger, Erling Pettersen, told Aftenbladet, “Heaven is for everyone no matter what you have on your conscience.”

Four other bishops, in Oslo, Bjørgvin, Agder and Telemark, and Sør-Hålogaland also believe so, put in different ways.
The Bishops of Møre as well as Hamar, and Helga Haugland Byfuglien, praeses in the Norwegian Church share the opinion that it is not up to us but God to judge Breivik’s fate.

Borg and Tunsberg’s bishops did not wish to comment, and the Bishop of Nord-Hålogaland will not state his opinion of Breivik’s blessedness.

Nidaros bishop, Tor Singsaas, would not want to speculate on whether Breivik would get to heaven.

“I do not want to comment on these questions based on the grounds that it has only been a short time since July 22nd. We need more time before we begin to concern ourselves with such questions,” he said.
