"God is unfair in that Hitler and a dear old lady (who never accepted Jesus) will both go to hell."

"Sinners often accuse God of being unjust, because they assume that everyone will receive the same punishment in hell. God's judgment, however, will be according to righteousness (Acts 17:31). This verse shows that there will be degrees of punishment. See Mark 6:11."

Yes, people tend to compare themselves to the worst criminals in history, rather than comparing themselves to God's holiness. And indeed, most people don't even understand God's holiness, nor do they even really grasp the concept, I don't think, of what pure holiness is.
