Perfect choice?

James Holmes, the gunman behind the Dark Knight massacre in Colorado last July, has reportedly turned Muslim and prays five times a day.

The killer showed off a lengthy, thick beard during a court appearance earlier this month, and a prison source has claimed it is a symbol of his new-found faith.

The source said Holmes has turned to Islam as a way of justifying his horrific murder spree in an Aurora, Colorado cinema on July 20 which left 12 people dead and 58 people wounded.

'He has brainwashed himself into believing he was on his own personal jihad and that his victims were infidels,' a prison source told the National Enquirer.

He now prays five times a day, sticks to a strict Muslim diet and spends hours each day studying the Qur'an, the source said. But his new routine has upset Muslim inmates.
'He has brainwashed himself into believing he was on his own personal jihad and that his victims were infidels,
Very likely he had some help in the "brainwashing".

He's severely mentally ill and has nothing to occupy his mind with, this doesn't surprise me in the least.

Yes, because ex post facto justifications reflect on the Muslim community as a whole.

Ex post facto or otherwise, it will be labeled as his justification for the act by the media and people at large.

I'm skeptical. I'm not saying it isn't true; I'm just not the kind of guy to easily swallow the word of an unnamed "prison source" given to National Enquirer--a magazine that has a history of paying large sums of money to fraudulent sources for bunk information.

That'll set him straight.

Note that the sources named in the article are the Daily Mail and the National Enquirer, though so this story is probably bullshit.

Regardless of authenticity, why is this actually that noteworthy (I don't mean you shouldn't have posted it)?

The particular delusion the bored spree-killer with no mental stimulation whatsoever picks from his bland cell is irrelevant really...

He can convert to the church of the bacon loving walmart greeters and claim the shooting was to avenge wrongs done unto him by a talking matchbox car named Gunther for all I care. Its not going to change the fact that he is going to spend the rest of his life incarcerated.
Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false and by the rulers as useful
