Aurora Movie theater shooter James Holmes converts to Islam in prison



Apparently James Holmes has converted to Islam to justify the massacre he committed as some sort of Islamic jihad. I’m sure Allah would be proud:

WASHINGTON TIMES – 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.

Didn’t he get it backwards?  Don’t you first become a muslim and then you shoot people?

It’s a fact that islam is a growing belief among prisoners.  Want to know why?  They are making it more difficult for Christian ministers to go into our correctional facilities, and are giving Imams a free pass!  This is a fact that is not only shameful, but dangerous for all of us!

Oh, f’ing please. This gimmick is an attempt to evade the death penalty. Wouldn’t want the American Justice System to offend Islam, would we. The outrageous thing about this is that it will probably work considering the traitorous judges swimming the sewers in Colorado. All I can say is that if the state doesn’t kill him, and they won’t, the immigrants in the prison will for whatever sport.

There was a report somewhere a few years back that moslim clerics are going into prisons to preach to, and convert, the inmates. Beware!

Let’s be honest, there are some crimes where the death sentence is not only called for, but also the only appropriate punishment.

Surprising that inmates would deny believing in Jihad.   NOT.
This is an integral part of being Muslim.  You can not be Muslim and not believe in it.  The closest you can get is to believe now is not the time to perform it.
This “religion” NO this political movement is not compatible with democracy or a republic like America.

“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.”
M’kay…  Good point… President Bush said the exact same thing.  Islam is a religion of peace.  That settles it.  And Muslim thugs in prison reiterating what Dubbya says double settles it.

Now that I agree with!  I don’t give a rat’s rear end whether he’s crazy as bat guano, muslim or perfectly sane.  He took away the lives of several people in cold blood, he needs to swing from the end of the rope.
I was happy to see the judge denied a change of venue for Hasan – which means the death penalty is on the table still.

Does it matter that the original source of this story is the National Enquirer?  WT & Breitbart have picked it up from the Daily Mail who sources it to the National Enquirer.  The link goes back to NE but a search of their site doesn’t bring up any kind of story on Holmes converting to Islam.  So… we have a ‘source’ unnamed that says he’s converted and a link to a supermarket rag.   Is this what passes for journalism now?  Do we even have any real reporters anymore?

My point is that the Daily Mail reporter is unnamed, the source is unnamed and the link back to NE doesn’t bring up any story to tie to anyone…  Just a ‘source’.  That’s not journalism.

Two explanations read on twitter:

*) he’s done it so that he can get a pardon from BHO;
*) he’s done it to justify these murders (‘all infidels’) for himself.

I think both are right.

“”Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed gun bills into law Wednesday
that ban ammunition magazines holding more than 15 rounds and require
background checks for firearm purchases made online or through private
parties.
The laws, which take effect July 1, were signed by the
Democratic governor the day after Tom Clements, executive director of
the Colorado Department of Corrections, was gunned down in his home and
on the eight-month anniversary of the mass shootings at an Aurora movie
theater that left 12 people dead and nearly 60 wounded.””

You’d have to be one serious idiot to believe Islam is to blame for what this monster did. He supposedly converted after the fact, not before; I say supposedly as I don’t fully believe the conviction in the conversion. Even if he were Muslim in a Muslim country, he would get the death penalty under Shariah as murder is the second worst of actions. The “notebook” he mailed to his school detailing the massacre contained no hint of anything Islamic or religious in anyway as being the reason for the massacre. There’s no reason to be a bigot and drag us into this schizophrenic fairy-tale that somehow this sick individual was adhering to Islam by murdering innocent people.

Rshill7

Murder is also considered a form of worship in Islam. One doesn’t have to be a bigot to see what your “religion” not only condones, but orders.

OneThinDime
Guest
OneThinDime

Why don’t you take your religion of death and destruction and worship of Shariah back to the Middle East.  Muslims either (1) take place in the actual terrorism or (2) encourage others to do so.

sDee

You mention the “second worst” sin but isn’t the first shirk?  As in the Holy Trinity? The Father , the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
For such apostasy or shirk, death is the penalty.
You’d have mentioned that except for that pesky taquiyya thing.

Any wonder islam remains a barbaric pre-fuedal religion?

By the way, Islam is whatchacall institutionalized bigotry, OK? The most bigoted group on the planet. For the word “bigot” to even exit your pie-hole, is rich.

AmericanMuslim   I agree. Your are absolutely right.  Your fellow pious and doctrinaire coreligionists, who adhere to the teachings of the Koran and Hadiths regarding the killing of infidels, have enough of their own Islamic induced bigotries to drag themselves into.   Let’s just say that James Holmes is following the Islamic principle that all men are actually born Muslim, even though they don’t realize it until such time that dawa is offered to them to see the light.  Who can blame him for actually following the dictates of his new found religion and applying its dictates retroactively.  And you are absolutely right… that terrorism against the “innocent” is haram in Islam.  But then again Islam teaches that the kuffar by his very nature can never be considered “innocent”.  You see… AmericanMuslim… we dumb kuffars are quickly catching on to the truths of Islam.  Something CAIR and all the other Muslim… Read more »

OneThinDime   It’s time we start “getting in their face” and confronting them about their taqiyya and CAIR indoctrination.  I’m done with being nice to those who pretend to be moderate.  They NEVER EVER condemn their own, but ALWAYS condemn those who expose their murderous and pious Islamic acts.
That’s when you know they’re phony moderates.

Bet you are actually proud of your boy.
Of course, murder is against the law, UNLESS the koran allows it…like in the case of a woman commiting adultery or ‘causing’ a man to rape her, right…in which case you stone the woman? And so forth.
Most of the posters here know all about it…you are wasting your time. We know about lying to the infidel, too, you see.
