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.

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

Mr. Holmes now prays five times a day, sticks to a strict Muslim diet and spends hours each day studying the Koran, the source told the Enquirer.

Full story.

    After the fatwa issued by that one crazy imam which says that
    sodomy is okay if its for jihad purposes maybe Holmes wanted to
    justify getting his, you know what, stretched and expanded in prison. Or if he knows any chemistry and has studied civil war history, he may also know that southern ladies used to go door to door with ‘piss buckets’, to collect fresh urine which was then collected, dried and treated to make percussion explosives for percussion caps when the south was running short on material. So he could still fill himself up and go boom yet.

    The saddest part is, the asshole governor of Colorado is harder on his citizens than this vermin. If he asked for flying lessons, he’d probably get them.

    I’m so shocked I can hardly stifle my yawn.

    Possibly Holmes has repented and has turned to Islam in repentance. It doesn’t sound that way, though.
    Perhaps Holmes has seen that introducing Islam into otherwise cut-and-dried homicide cases has made them more difficult — KSM has still not come to trial, nor Nidal Hasan, and several free-lance jihadists have avoided the death penalty.
    Holmes seems to be manipulative and wicked; I wouldn’t blame any religion to which he turns for what he is. Hitler was raised a Catholic and Stalin was once in seminary. Che Guevara was a physician.
