Philosophically, the consensus seems to be that people who are developmentally unable to understand the concepts are, like children, not held to the same standards. Basically most theologians use more or less the same standards as our justice system, so if one would be ruled incompetent to stand trial they are only expected to be as "Christ-like" as their developmental development makes possible. They seem to assume that God will know what their mental abilities will allow.

No they are not. Behaviors must be a concious decision or at least ones that we are able to resist.
