Does Eru still love the Orcs? Can't Post

Personally i percieve Eru, to be very similar, if not, exactly the same to my christian God. In saying that, I see him being a loving, gentle, and forgiving father of all people. We christians believe that any one, is redeemable, and God loves them all. Even if they are as bad as a terrorist leader, God still loves them.
Could this be the same for Eru? The Orcs, are evil, but they are still created partly from his own thought. If it wasnt for his creation of the elves, the orcs wouldnt exsist. So basically they are like an off shoot of elves. So if that is the case, then they too are children of illuvatar, just corrupted, and tortured by Melkor, into hateful beings. I personally believe, that Eru pitys them, and has places for them in the halls of mandos. Here they probably will stay for a very long time, slowly realising the evil they had done.

But either way, i believe that Eru loves them as much as his own children, even though they are considered evil.

I believe that Azog and Bolg are possibly the only two orcs who may be an exception to the typical evil nature of an orc. Azog had brought up his son, well enough that he actually acknowledges him as his own son. That is a first for any orc. And Bolg sets out to march upon Erebor in vengeance of his fathers death. How many orcs will Try and avenge another dead orc? Most will just forget about the dead one. This gives me hope that Orcs, have some traits of good in them, even if it is small aspects.
