Dark Knight killer James Holmes 'is now a Muslim who prays five times a day'
MailOnline ^ | 20 March 2013 | Daily Mail

Posted on 03/20/2013 6:50:24 PM PDT by wtd

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.

The article doesn't specifically identify when Holmes reverted . . .while Holmes claims his murderous rampage was a personal jihad.

Nothing I read about those warning signs revealed even the slightest hint of his reversion. What about you, did you read anything that would imply he was a devout Muslim?

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if it turns out he reverted before the theatre massacre, and the American press withheld that info.

The Muslims’ horrific crimes against their enemmies has inspiried a lot of crazy men in the US and Europe. Muslims have gotten nothing but attention and power since then. Our government has even progressed to molest and abuse Americans at the airports because the Islamists used airplanes to blow up buildings. What’s not to like about this for a Muslim? The police machinery built to track Islamic terrorists has now named US Vets and Christians the real terrorists!

Suddenly, hatin’ on the Jooos, as long as you have a Muslim rationale is even okay. Hatin’ America and Christians is cool among the wackos, too.

If he wasn’t a Muslim before committing mass murder, he might as well become one. He will fit right in.

"Is it possible that he sized up the prison population for protection, and picked a side?

That thought did cross my mind too. However, this segment of the linked report pulls that proverbial prayer rug right out from underneath it:

"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.

'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.'

NONE OF THEM? Pray tell, all these muslims reside in the same prison because. . .?

Why do we almost always have to get significant news from the BRITISH press? Our media has been subverted by Muslim money. It’s obvious. Why doesn’t the DOJ investigate? Oh wait....

Makes sense. Evil loves darkness.

John 3:19
This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.

Frankly, I think that I see some signs of instability in him, don’t hold me to that, but it is a feeling that I have.

Could be, maybe some.

And I thought he was a COMDEM! /sarcasm

Now you tell me he is a Muslim?

But is there a difference? Both are mental disorders.

wow this guy is truly incredible.

usually muslims have to grow up and spend years of brainwashing before going on their own murderous personal jihads.

I read the whole article. They’re trying very hard to pretend he converted later.

I remember reading something about him hanging out with muzzies at the time.

How appropriate that this murderer would follow a religion founded by a murderer. And the religion of peace that gets offended by pointing out how violent Islam is, responds by killing and burning the aforementioned infidel.
