The Norwegian Dagbladet reports that Anders Behring Breivik is apparently a Freemason and one of the loony right.
The alleged offender is a member of the John lodge St. Olaus TD Three pillars of the Norwegian Masonic Order. He has the status of the 3rd degree, where the highest order is the 10th degree. “We have no way to express an opinion on individuals or incidents related to any members”, Helge Qvigstad, spokesman of the Norwegian Freemasons order told Dagbladet. On a Facebook profile he appears to be 32-year-old Christian and politically conservative. His favorite books showing the man behind the profile include George Orwell’s “1984″ and Kafka’s “process”.
The gunman was dressed as a police officer and gunned down young people as they ran for their lives at a youth camp. Police said Friday evening that they’ve linked the youth camp shooting and Oslo bombing. Breivik is believed to have acted alone.
Norwegian TV2 reports that Breivik belongs to “ring-wing circles” in Oslo. ….

Another Freemason involved with a mass shooting (in case we forget) – Thomas Hamilton, who commited the Dunblaine massacre in Scotland.
