Is the Media Ignoring Atheism as a Motive in Devin Patrick Kelley?

Survivor of Texas Massacre​ Recounts the Words She Heard While Playing Dead, 'Everybody Dies Motherf**ker'

There seems to be a wide gap between what we know about Devin Patrick Kelley and what is being reported about him in the Mainstream Media.

In every crime, there are three elements that come in to play before it is committed: Motive, Means, and Opportunity. The means and opportunity are obvious in the case where a man bursts into a church and starts gunning down its helpless worshipers.  What we are left with after the fact is the reason for such a carnage and destruction of human life.  Why would someone specifically target a church in a small town and systematically execute unarmed people?  Reports are coming in that Devin Patrick Kelley specifically targeting crying children who had no hope of defending themselves.  This kind of maliciousness goes beyond what most people can even contemplate but it does show the kind of mindset that can put aside all forms of morality, ethics, and empathy as it sets out to fulfill its ruthless ambitions.  What were those ambitions and why did they require the deaths to occur specifically in a small country church?

Since the event, that shocked the world, a picture of Devin Patrick Kelley life is coming together.  He was a troubled man who had an enormous tendency to violence.  His first marriage broke down through violence, he fractured his own son’s skull in an attack and as a result, was dishonorably discharged from military service.  There are even reports that he had escaped from a mental institution at some stage.

Yet we are still left with the question of why he chose to target a church and why he chose to deliberately execute everyone he could.  His actions go far beyond taking revenge upon a hated ex-mother-inlaw to collective hatred of target group of people.  Devin could have gone to the homes of the people he hated.  He could have stalked them individually to satisfy his individual revenge.  However, that was not enough, he wanted to take his wrath out on an entire congregation.

People who knew Devin through his online social media accounts describe a man who was a fanatical atheist who had nothing but contempt for religious people.  He considered them to be stupid and contemptible.  He was linked to a number of atheist social media accounts and had no hesitation in preaching that he collectively hated Christians.

Nina Rose Nava, who also said she attended school with Kelley had this to say:

“[I]n complete shock! I legit just deleted him off my [Facebook] cause I couldn’t stand his post. He was always talking about how people who believe in God [were] stupid and trying to preach his atheism.”

At least one atheist group that Devin associated with now wants to distance itself from any their infamous subscriber.

“Reports say the Texas shooter ‘liked’ my Facebook page,” he posted on Twitter in the wake of the attack. “It should go without saying that his actions go against everything I stand for.”

Law officers have also been trying to steer the blame away from atheism:

“This was not racially motivated, it wasn’t over religious beliefs,” Freeman Martin, a regional director with the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Despite the domestic issues surrounding this case, no one has explained how a mass murder attack upon a church of people is not religiously motivated.  It beggars belief.

The entire picture of what was going through the mind of Devin may never be known however authorities and media commentators have been quick to steer away from any mention of his contempt of people who believed in god.
