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.

A prison source say the beard James Holmes sported in court last months represents his new-found faith. The source said Mr. Holmes has turned Muslim as a way of justifying his horrific crimes on July 20 which left 12 people dead and 58 people wounded, the Daily Mail reports.

I tend to think attempting to prevent his arse from being ripped wide open has something to do with his conversion.

To justify some future murders, perhaps beheadings, with numbers much higher?

Now if the media treated Islam like they treat Christianity, they would immediately find a Mullah and ask him: “How can a man of the Islam Faith commit such a terrible crime?”

What about his connection to OWS?

And why hasn’t that been talked about at greater length?

Did he get his weapons and training through Eric Holder or the White House?

You areprobably on the right track, but also he needs a religion of sorts and Islam and it’s hatreds is right up his alley.

From what I can see, although he has committed evil acts, he’s shown a great capacity for self-preservation.

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.”

Well thank Allah for that. Good to know a bunch of rapists and murders in a maximum security prison don't condone terroism or extremism!!!

Didn’t Trojan Horse Hussein (resident Obama) weigh in on this fella’ way back when? He said in effect “He could have been my son”.
Refer to the “Photoshopped Joker” image
(Sorry, I haven’t yet figured out how to send a picture in a reply such as this).
Oh, yea, that was about the hoodlum Trayvon Martin. Well he certainly would have liked to say the same about this joker.
