11. Is ISIS motivated by religious teachings?

If so, then a person pledging allegiance to them is also. I guess FBI has a lot of info about his social media activity. But if ISIS is just a secular social club, then the faith connection falls apart. ISIS does share the killer's interest in brutally killing gay people, and does invoke explicitly Islamic doctrine for doing so, so that is an argument for a faith connection.
