    Jim Jones is known for the mass suicide of 909 people including over 200 children. All of these people were forced to ingest cyanide.

    All of these men...Christians.

    The point of your OP was to point the finger at an Atheist. I am not defending James Holmes at all. But I am defending the Atheist community. You can't tell me that the Atheist community is bad because of one crazy person. Crazy people reside in all communities.
    Are you seriously wanting to play the "who has killed more people" game? You're going to have a tough time surpassing Joseph Stalin's 50 million people if that's the case.

    Why would what he believed in and didn't believe in not be relevant?

    Because that has nothing to do with why he killed those people.

    Are you seriously wanting to misinterpret everything that people say?

    OP made it out like Christians don't kill people out of pure stupidity.

    Here's a list.

    So because he doesn't go to church anymore, but still believe in the Christian way of life, that absolves him of all Christian teachings? Whatever helps you sleep at night. The complete denial by some of you Christians is bordering on insanity...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    Oh, ok, so this is all about belief correct? Fair enough: his belief was that he was the Joker.

    Im fairly certain next week he will believe he's Joan of Arc. Followed by Charlemagne. After that Mario Williams.

    The guys personal belief system had very little to do with his massacre. What it had to do with is his medical condition. He was a nutjob who, for whatever reason, couldnt get adequate treatment. The treatment he was receiving clearly wasnt working.

    You're wrong sir. It's because he didn't let Jesus into his heart, you brought the holy ghost with him? Maybe? And then I'm pretty sure the devil anally raped him, injecting into his body the evil semen of murderers, which caused him to go on a murderous rampage. This is what happens to all murderers. Then afterwards, they join the illuminati, and take Big Foot to go and ride the Loch Ness monster to Narnia.

    Of course, if he was a Christian, he wasn't really one. He was a cultural Christian, not a real one. This is a simple explanation for every Christian who does a bad thing. They weren't really Christians, despite actually reading and following the bible, they aren't real Christians.

    This is a much more plausible explanation than he was simply a sick man. Gotta learn your stuff my friend...
