Capitalizing on the opportunity to continue exploiting a tragedy, the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins extended blame for the shooting from the Southern Poverty Law Center onto President Obama’s administration. Speaking with Rick Santorum on Washington Watch Weekly, Perkins claimed “his administration’s indifference towards religious freedom has really created an open season all across this country”:

PERKINS: Well I think as we witnessed this past week at the Family Research Council, clearly linked to that same atmosphere of hostility that’s created by the public policies of an administration that’s indifferent or hostile to religious freedom and groups like as I mentioned the Southern Poverty Law Center that recklessly throws around labels giving people like this gunman who came into our building a license to take innocent life.
