From the moment I saw his famous video, I couldn’t hate Elliot Rodger.

He was too pathetic to hate, like a ventriloquist’s dummy. That didn’t make him less evil.

At some point his rage opened him to cruel thoughts. They flooded into him like the ocean roaring into the funnel of a foundering ship until they filled him to the brim. So that on his last day of rage he was completely consumed by what in former times people called the Devil.

But the Devil doesn’t exist you know. Or so we are told.
We’ve purged him from our modern, secular, shrink-ridden world. But by whatever alias he lives under now, Elliot Rodgers is a reminder that the power of the idea walks among us as fiercely as ever. He can materialize, quite suddenly, whether over New York City or in California, you never know when.

Wrote it about Jared Loughner, but it fits here, too:

"He has a demon, and is mad."

I'm a Christian but I think the old Flip Wilson squawk "The Devil Made Me Do It", is a copout.

Men commit these heinous acts and as the world gets worse the weak minded will degrade to the point that they reflect exactly what society permits itself to become. And, there are millions of the weak minded that will serve society with their psychosis.

The greatest trick of Satan is that he has convinced Mankind that he doesn't exist.
