Your quite right, it doesn't make any difference. Just like at Virginia Tech, this is a case of a badly unstable individual going on a murderous rampage. It's an example of what the media does to us at times. The news was quick to report that he hated the congregation's "liberal views", which immediately gives people the impression of him being a simple bigot. But in fact, he hated everyone that differed from him, and it now seems that before she moved away, his ex-wife had been a member of that same church. He may very well have targeted it thinking that they had influenced the failure of their marriage by filling her with those liberal ideas.
This is one where we'll just have to ignore the headlines and read the whole article
