Most mainstream media outlets are selling the same story today that they were selling yesterday.
They have no idea why coward Devin Kelley shot up a Texas Baptist church yesterday, killing 26 people – including children as young as five years old.
But for journalists who are actually interested in looking, Kelley’s motives… his dark secret… have been incredibly easy to discover.
They’re just not something that the liberal mainstream media wants to discuss.
Kelley was a violent anti-Christian atheist.
And his assault on the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs is the latest evidence that Christians are being increasingly targeted with persecution and violence in America.
Just don’t expect the media to admit that – they only want to talk about gun control instead.
Not long after the shooting, the mainstream media tried to paint a picture of Kelley as a man who may have had Christian leanings himself, even speculating that he may have participated in Bible study.
But once the conservative Washington Times did some digging, it found Kelley’s friends telling a much different story.
Kelley was a rabid atheist who regularly and openly mocked Christians and other believers on social media.
It was such a common occurrence that his friends were getting sick of him.
And this wasn’t a new cause for Kelley. A high school friend, Patrick Boyce, described Kelley as, “the first atheist I met.”
Another friend, Nina Rose Nava, had recently blocked him on Facebook because she was tiring of his anti-religious rants.
“He was always talking about how people who believe in God [were] stupid and trying to preach his atheism,” Nava wrote, according to the Washington Times.
“I removed him off [Facebook] for those same reasons,” wrote another friend, Christopher Leo Longoria.
Kelley also had a history of acting out on his violent impulses. He was dishonorably discharged from the Air Force after a 2012 court martial for assaulting his wife and child.
And it looks like Kelley may have planned his assault on the First Baptist Church for some time. Authorities are looking into whether a photo of an AR-15 Kelley posted a week before the attacks may have been the gun he used.
It’s certainly beginning to look like an anti-Christian atheist unleashed a carefully planned bloodbath on a Christian church.
But liberal media outlets and politicians don’t want to talk about Christian persecution – they only want to talk about gun control.
“Don’t look for the left-leaning media to harp on these revelations of Kelley’s character and beliefs, though,” wrote Washington Times reporter Cheryl K. Chumley. “Rather, it’s all about the gun control — all about the fact Kelley had access to guns, all about pressuring Congress to now restrict other Americans’ access to guns.”
