Well "satan" and "god" are so heavily ingrained into the psyche of our society that it's not as if you could run the experiment in a religion-less vacuum. I think she would have committed the crime without any religion whatsoever, but she's used the judeo-christian allegory as a way to rationalize her own insanity IMO. If it wasn't christianity it would be "evil spirits" or something. When you have voices in your head and uncontrollable behavioral outbursts vague spiritual stories answer the "why?" question in the same way they answer all difficult questions. It's a one-size-fits-all crutch. Plus, she's just nuts; she probably incorporates all sorts of whacked out pop-culture stuff into her head. Hinkley wanted to shoot Reagan to impress Jodie Foster and the Son of Sam thought his dog was telling him to kill people for example.
