I think the key to understand something like this, is that it's the act of a human being, not his beliefs. You have to be motivated to do something like this, and it's a kind of motivation that doesn't need any specific belief to go from thought to action. He could have used any delusional interpretation of any belief to act on his motivation.
I fear things like this will confuse the fact that we're fundamentally flawed, and that what we believe or what we stand for will never take that away. We must look at ourselves first, before we look for external causes.
Every belief or non-belief can be twisted into a reason for almost any act. We have an inherent incapacity to act rationally - if we're sufficiently motivated for destruction or self-destruction.
Waste of potential
