I am claiming such. Even the head snake oil salesman, Billy Graham used such tactics to move the political argument and push the religious agenda.According to published reports the shooter lived alone with a stack of bibles and no furniture.
Was he nuts before finding religion, or after finding religion?

Are you claiming that his having a lot of bibles means his acts were politically motivated?
