I'm unhappy that Mike presumes to know the eternal destination of anyone. No one on earth knows for sure unless they're present at the moment of death and the person dies while publicly asserting his antipathy to God's salvation. One of the thieves who died next to Jesus is an obvious example--deathbed conversions are real and commonplace.
Amen to that I was disheartened by that too.
The article posted at the Townhall website says Bilbo is "probably" in Hell.
So it doesn't seem to me that Mike is "presuming" the outcome, although he certainly has a strong opinion as to the relevant probabilities.
(And I guess there must be two slightly different versions of the article floating around in cyberspace.)
