Mehmet Ali Agca

Former would-be papal assassin Mehmet Ali Agca is mourning the pope's death, while his brother may attend the funeral. I wonder how Agca will be portrayed in religious writings 500 years from now, assuming John Paul II is canonized. Pontius Pilate was canonized in the Ethiopian church.

UPDATE: Just to clarify, I don't expect Mehmet Ali Agca to be canonized or anything. That would be a little strange. I was just noting the myriad ways people can be interpreted in religious stories.
