Colorado Shooting

WHAT to do with James Holmes, the lone gunman who shot to kill in an Aurora, Colorado, cinema? The Washington Times reports that Holmes has turned to God:

The man who shot up an Aurora, Colo., movie theater during a screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” last summer has reportedly converted to Islam and prays up to five times a day.

That was first reported in the National Enquirer, which attributes news of Holmes’ spiritual bent to an unnamed source. “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.

How the news organ knows how often Holmes prays is not explained? The godly can pray hundreds of times a day. They do it silently. But this seems to be about Islam more than Holmes. The paper adds:

But most Muslim inmates are not happy with the convict’s new religion. “None of them condone forms of terrorism or extremism,” the source added. “And they don’t want their religion to be connected to that awful shooting.”

But he wasn’t a Muslim when he shot up the cinema? All we know is that when young Holmes attended a Lutheran church. He was a Christian when he killed so many. There is no connection to Islam other than the NE’s story. And doesn’t terrorism imply a cause? Your commit acts of terror to instill fear and push an agenda. What was Holmes’ agenda? It wasn’t jihad. The Muslim prisoners need not worry. Maybe a truth serum can find out why Holmes went on a murderous rampage?
