    I’ve seen numerous news reports about shootings at US churches, mosques, synagogues and temples in recent years. Nearly all fell into one of two categories:

    1) White shooters attacking non-white or jewish buildings (e.g. Dylann Roof, the sikh temple shooting, etc.).

    2) Non-white shooters committing attacks on individuals for personal reasons (e.g. revenge, embezzlement, jealousy over extra marital affairs). The attacks were only related to the religions by where they happened, not motivated by it.

    There may be exceptions, but very few.
