What's the truth? The guy was just crazy. Mentally ill. This has nothing, nothing to do with religion. The world is full of problems that can be blamed on religion, but this isn't one of them. Once all the dust settles and the courts and psychiatrists have a chance to evaluate Breivik, we'll probably read that he's a classic psychopath, incapable of understanding the harm he caused, and that he has paranoia or possibly undiagnosed schizophrenia. The real tragedy is that the man wasn't diagnosed and helped before he took so many innocent lives.
All you have to do is read his manifesto (large PDF file), which apparently has huge parts plagiarized from 'Unabomber' Ted Kaczenski. After just a few pages, you'll realize that the man had no philosophy at all. His writing is nothing but rambling, disconnected short essays, none of which add up to anything.
If you really want to find out what happened in Norway, I strongly recommend Jon Ronson's new book, The Psychopath Test: A Journey Through the Madness Industry. There's also a great interview with Ronson on NPR that I almost guarantee will change how you think about murderers like Norway's Breivik (click on the "listen" button at the top).
