An unidentified 34-year-old man drove a van into the quarters of the Australian Christian Lobby in Canberra Wednesday evening, causing an explosion that thankfully injured nobody except for him.

With serious burns all over his body, the man then walked to a nearby hospital for treatment, where he remained as of Thursday morning, according to The U.K. Daily Telegraph.

It was not until local police began to investigate the bizarre incident that they discovered the man had filled his van with gas bottles and then ignited them prior to the attack. Yet despite these facts, authorities were certain that the attack had no political or religious motivations.

“(A)s a result of our conversations with the male driver of the vehicle, we have established that the actions of this individual are not politically, religiously or ideologically motivated,” remarked local police commander Mark Walters.

ACL’s managing director Lyle Shelton disagreed.

“This is an attack on free speech in Australia, which I am deeply shocked about and never thought I would see in my lifetime,” he told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, adding that his organization has received a “number of death threats” over the years over its Christian lobbying efforts.

As noted by the BBC, the ACL is a well-established conservative lobby known for opposing gay marriage, abortion, euthanasia and LGBT education programs. This has made it the target of much hate.

“I think something of this nature, that appears to be so deliberate, is an attack against the sort of things that we’ve been saying in the public square,” Shelton reportedly later added in a statement to ABC radio. “And obviously someone didn’t like that which we stand for, which we’ve advocated publicly.”

But again, local police felt differently.

“We do not believe there is any threat to the community as a result of this particular incident,” Walters maintained.
