Why is it that they all seem to want the world to end and for everyone to die horribly? It seems each new horrible thing that happens is a CONFIRMATION in their beliefs and they are feeding off of it.
I have even heard preachers are saying the Tsunami was gods will for not celebrating Jesus's birthday and that they were all homosexuals. So God killed them on sunday morning to send a message.
We must stop them before they kill us all.
I don't think any GOD worthy of worshipping would kill innocent people. In fact I don't think any GOD has any power over it. If they did no little children would every be hurt by anything.

Im pretty sure that religion was brought into ALL of those wars to boost moral, such things as "god is on OUR side, therefore we WILL win!!" and since both of these sides said this, its obviously ALOAD OF BALLS.
Religion plays a part in EVERYONES day to day lives, even if you belive or not, religion effects alot of decisions.... Therefore it effects their lives.
Then that's no reason to hate religion, it's a reason to hate people who USE religion as a motivator for war.
Hitler used national pride, racial pride, and the perceived affluence of Jews to drive his troops, not religion.
Blaming religion for hatred is like blaming black/yellow/red skin for racism, blaming Marx for the Cold War, or blaming bombs for killing people. "Damn those nuclear weapons! Why are they so violent? Why do they want to kill so many people?!"
religion still doesnt make it any easier on the confused people. There's always the sheep and the wolves. Religion never tries to be the sheperd.
