Brazillian school shooter was a devout Christian

Actually if you visit Loonwatch here:
Robert Spencer claims the shooter was inspired by Jihad. If I remember correctly he also called the Finnish mall shooter a devout Muslim cause he was pissed at his girlfriend for cheating on him?

Brazil: Rio school gunman ‘motivated by bullying’

A Brazilian gunman who shot dead 12 children at his former school in Rio de Janeiro last week before killing himself was motivated by bullying, letters he wrote have revealed.

The messages left by Wellington Menezes de Oliveira, 23, were released by police along with videos and photos.

In them, he praises a US student who killed 32 people in 2007, calling him his “brother”.

The school massacre in Rio was the first of its kind in Brazil.

“I hope this serves as a lesson, especially to those school officials who stood by with their arms crossed as students were being attacked, humiliated, ridiculed,” Menezes de Oliveira says in one video.

“I want to leave very clear that I am not responsible for the deaths that will occur, even though my fingers will be on the trigger,” he adds, blaming the murders he went on to commit on bullies.

The rambling messages also mention God and quote from the Bible.

Photos show him posing with the two handguns that he used to attack the Tasso da Silveira school in Realengo, a poor suburb in western Rio.

If you go back to the Loonwatch article you'll find this:

A transcript of his suicide note suggests a ritualistic spiritual longing he somehow expected to be fulfilled upon his death. In it, he asked that his body be cleaned by glove-wearing orderlies, buried next his adoptive mother and visited by a religious person so that his soul would be ready for the second coming of Jesus
