Sandy Hook Gunman Adam Lanza Worshiped the Devil

The Sandy Hook gunman worshiped the devil and  had an online page dedicated to Satan, a former classmate revealed, as his  childhood barber recalls Adam Lanza never spoke and would stare at the floor  every time he had his hair cut.

Lanza’s worshiping page had the word ‘Devil’  written in red, Gothic-style letters against a black background, Trevor L. Todd  told The National Enquirer, something which he said was ‘weird’ and ‘gave him  the chills’.

The FBI are trying to piece together his  smashed up hard drive to see if his online footprint will reveal any motive for  the killing, but they strongly believe he made use of devil-worshiping and  suicide sites and boasted of his murder plans on message forums…

    Well his actions certainly were Satanic but I strongly suspect that even his Satan worship was a part of his mental illness. I used to work as a Registered Nurse on psychiatric units for 20 years and it is clear to me that no normal person whether he worships the devil or not is going to shoot his mother and then kill 20 people. It sounds more to me like he had Major Depression ( of course I can’t really say what mental illness because I don’t know his other symptoms.) At least the action of him killing the people he did was an act of exteme rage and when a person gets extremely depressed they can feel persecuted by others because of persecutory Delusions.

    Of course the main thing to realize is that the problem was with the person pulling the trigger not the fault of an inanimate object that is unable to make any decisions on their own. I read today that Nancy Pulosy wants to make magazines or pictures of assault rifles illegal. Talk about an ignorant hysterical idea! As if a person had no will power of their own and because they see a picture of a gun they will run out and kill someone.

    It shows how much the reality of God and of religion have declined in the world. Part of the trouble is because of the ascendance of the philosophy of Determinism which has gained in influence in the past 50 years. The Philosophies main tenant is that a person can not make a decision that is contrary to their environment. In the 1960′s when I started college the definition of psychology was the “influence” that internal structures of the psyche have on the persons conclusions and decisions. Sociology was the study of external (outside the body) situations and social structures that “influence” a persons decisions.

    Now that has changed and that Behaviorism states that psychology is the study of internal structures in the psyche that “Determine” behavior. Likewise, Sociology is the study of external factors that determine a persons decisions and actions. That is why todays Sociologists say we have to find and change the “root causes” of crime like poverty and fatherless families. They don’t want to punish the criminal they want to change society and then never give up their control of things. They will want more and more laws to “Determine” what we do. The choice of what tooth paste to use is too important to let the private individual make that decision. Think this is too absurd. Is it New York or some other Eastern State where Michele Obama has gotten the “Big Gulp Drink” made illegal.

    In our sadness and grieving for this tragic action that has just occurred please do not let our politicians who want to control every aspect of our lives make a bunch of silly laws against the possession of objects of inanimate matter that will solve no problem but cause us to slide down the slippery slope leading to a Police State and more oppressive government than we can even imagine at this time. Think I am off the wall. Who would have thought 10 years ago that a government would make the large size of a soft drink illegal and no one is up in arms about it. Our fore fathers would have done more than dump a shipment of tea overboard if something so oppressive as outlawing a size of a soft drink.

    What a crazy world we now live in.

    Fr. Smuts, I’m thinking this is one of those things where you need to know the source from where you are quoting. The National Enquirer is an American sensation rag that reports such stories as “Alien Colony Discovered living in a Bunker in Arizona!!!”, takes unflattering pictures of celebrities with “Look at the Celluite!!!!” headlines, and makes such wild claims like “George Bush and Margaret Thatcher have a Secret Love Child!!!!” I would not believe them if they reported that the sun was going to rise tomorrow. It is possible that this story is true, but I’d give it about the same chance as being true as “South African Priest Discovers the Philospher’s Stone in Attic!!!”

    Did you discover the Philosopher’s stone in your attic? ;)

    • Nope… Alchemy ain’t my thing ;)

    • The source is a former classmate, not the Enquirer. Maybe the Enquirer, however much a rage it may be, has the guts to print that. It would not surprise anyone that Lanza worshiped the devil or had in some way given himself over to the devil. His crimes are diabolical in nature and only someone in the grip of the demonic could have murdered his own mother and then 20 innocent children and the adults who tried to protect them.

    They’re all atheists.

    Cho Seung-Hui. Atheist.
    Jared Lee Loughner. Atheist.
    James Eagan Holmes? Atheist. (People involved in science tend to be.)
    Adam Lanza? Absentee father. Probably an atheist. Stronger implication with the fact of his mental illness and suicide.

    And I believe people like C. Hitchens and Dawkins would also shoot up their local God-worshipping center, if they weren’t such cowards that they can’t stand the sight of a gun, much less point it to someone. Hence, they resort to the coward’s resort of hurting each other and write volumes talking about how God doesn’t exist and how stupid people are for believing in God, like a child throwing a tantrum, screaming loudly and repeating bad language for not getting what he wants.
