Since they were married, then marriage itself must be responsible.

I don't think his parents encouraged him to assassinate a member of Congress -- at least, I've seen no evidence of it.

However, the tea party nutjobs do so on a regular basis, and target their hate speech towards people like this who are most susceptible to it.

You don't have to physically meet the leaders of a terrorist organization to become one yourself.

And that's what they are, terrorists.

Well they raised him, no?

Hell, he was living with them. And yet they had no influence on him.
But people he does not know did?

Did they teach him to fear and hate other people and use violence?

Tea party members do.

Sounds like you fear and hate tea party people.

Who taught you to do that?

There's a difference between fearing people who intend to do you harm, and fearing people just because they're different.

So, it's ok then to rationalize your fear and hate of other people?

Are you purposely being obtuse here? Or is this just libertarian black-and-white syndrome at work?

Just because fear-mongering is bad, doesn't mean the emotion of fear should be eliminated from the human race.

You're being hypocritical.
And you don't know it, or acknowledge it.
There is nothing obtuse about that observation.

Are you unable to grasp the difference between fearing something yourself, and trying to make other people fear it?
