God forbid we take a nuanced view of this. The man killed 76 people, so he's going to have some strange views. He appears to have been religious, but his violence was more based on culture than some Christian Jihad.
Before anyone attacks me for being "Islamophobic," I know of many examples of modern, non-Muslim, religious extremists.
I think few people would say that National Liberation Front of Tripura is not christian. That's a real Christian terrorist group. Don't forget that if Breivik converted to Islam. Liberals would say that he's not muslim.

From what I've read, Breivik stated he wasn't a religious Christian, but a cultural Christian. He also said he wasn't very religious, in general, and was proud of his Norse, Odinist heritage, e.g., heathen.
Therefore, I've concluded he was morally confused, and dangerously obsessed with counter-jihad ideology. Personally, I identify with that latter, but not at the expense of fundamental, Christian observance. Granted, in the future struggle, some compromises might have to be made for strategic and tactical expediency, but not in radical violation of Christian Just War doctrine.
