70. Not at all
Forgiveness and grace are unearned, and not granted because they're sought, but because they are free gifts of God. There is plenty of biblical support for this concept (lepers seeking healing, but getting forgiveness, Zaccheus climing a tree and Jesus inviting himself to Zaccheus' house for lunch, the parable of the harvest and the workers). But beside that point, how do you know bin Laden did not seek forgiveness?

And forgiveness for what? Although "everybody" says he was involved in 9/11, I'm kind of a stickler when it comes to another quaint old concept known as "evidence." The Bush administration promised we the people a white paper that would explain in great detail bin Laden's involvement, but it probably got pushed to the back burner after the Waco economic summit (another promised report from the Bush administration that's never come out). Oddly enough, bin Laden's FBI wanted poster doesn't mention 9/11 as one of the crimes he was being sought for.
