Anyone, from any walk of life, and who believe in different things, including religion, or other spiritual walks of life, are able to kill, and or
murder for many reasons.
Meanwhle it is true that morality is not the"sole province of those who believe in a deity", and btw not all spiritual walks of life have a belief in
a deity, but I also find it extremely ironic that many atheists act as if they are exempt of causing evil simply because they are atheists.
Atheists have also committed untold murders around the world.
Communists, and more so early communists who were ardent atheists, caused the murder of more than 110 million people in about 80 years or so, and
imprisoned millions more in gulags, and in "indoctrination camps".
Even the communists in Spain in the 1930s decided to murder priests, and any catholic they got their hands on, which is why their movement died off so
fast, because when people saw the reality of what these communists were bringing to Spain, the people united and fought the communists.
However, some communists have learned a bit from history and are now using religion to swell their ranks by claiming they are religious, such as
Many people are capable of doing despicable things, and they will use any, and every excuse to cause such despicable things. That is the truth.
I don't believe that all of mankind is evil, or that all of mankind must pay for what some have done, or are doing, but a large section of humanity
are just evil no matter what they believe in.
