The gunman who opened fire inside a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, has been identified as Devin Kelley, an Antifa member who vowed to start a civil war by “targeting white conservative churches” and causing anarchy in the United States.


Devin Kelley, who killed at least 27 people and injured many more, was one of two shooters in the church, according to eyewitnesses, who also report Kelley carried an Antifa flag and told the churchgoers “this is a communist revolution” before unloading on the congregation, reloading several times.

Classmates of Texas Gunman Reveal the Unsettling Things He Said Leading Up to Church Attack


Sunday afternoon, Devin Patrick Kelley stormed into a Sutherland Springs, Texas, church and opened fire, killing 26 and injuring many more.

While there is no question Kelley was deranged in his actions, it turns out those who knew him prior referred to him as “creepy,” “crazy,” and “weird.”

But Kelley's most well-known quality was his distaste for religion, with some referring to him as the first atheist they'd ever met. Just prior to the shooting, a number of his classmates from New Braunfels High School said they had deleted him as a Facebook friend because they couldn't deal with his hateful posts all the time.

There is less in Atheism to promote violence than there is in some of the Abrahamic Religions.  There is no "one size fits all"  atheism.  Atheists have very varied and individual reasons for not following the religious beliefs and practices of the people in the communities in which they grew up.  Almost all the atheists I have met were very tolerant of people with variant, even idiosyncratic beliefs, and there is no doctrine of violence embedded in atheism  as there is  in,  say Islam.   Islam in its most extreme forms promotes war, murder and violence.  Christianity  prior to the Enlightenment  was little better and Judaism in its earliest days could hardly be distinguished from ISIS or Boko Haram today.  The only reason why Jews are currently  less violent than Islam now, or Christianity during the days of the Crusades,  is because Jews had the shit kicked out of them 2500 years ago. 

The Asiatic religions particularly Budhaism are considerably less violence prone  at the level of doctrine than are the Abrahamic religions. 

Atheists have no common or central doctrine around which brotherhoods or bunds of  excitable males are likely to form.  There  is no atheist jihad or struggle doctrine.  There is little in atheism to promote an "us against the world"  attitude.  Just about the only time that atheists get "worked up" is when they are bullied by the religionists, primarily Muslims and Christians. This does not seem to be the case with regard to the Texas shooter. 

So atheists when they go bad, go bad for very individual and idiosyncratic  reasons.
