You're drastically misinterpreting her. Her (and my!) Lutheran denomination has mostly been politically isolationist, so she has no interest in being reductionist on that front. Rather, her instincts as a (very good, I think) reporter and her religious experience likely leads her to believe that theology matters. Other extenuating influences are important, but it's silly to set aside the, you know, religious beliefs/texts of the religious when interpreting their actions.

She simply tied the predictibility of some people's responses to the likelihood of their actions appearing in the group's holy text. If very religious people often do a thing, it's natural and important to ask whether they do the thing because they're religious.
