"... endorses the whole sale slaughter of nations..."

I, too, despise Islam.

Christianity certainly doesn't say this and the conquest wars recorded in Joshua were one-time deals, unlike the open-ended murder called for in the Koran.

"Jainism?"

Were I in the market for a new religion, I'd go with Pastafarianism.

Granted, modern day Christians are not ones to invade foreign countries on religious wars. However, if their religious leaders told them it was God's will. Wouldn't the believers be obligated to follow in the same military history of Moses and Joshua?

Jainism?
Jainism is far from new. It is one of the world's oldest religions even predating Hinduism. Scholars placed some of their earliest leaders in the 9th Century BC.

Pastafarians... hah! Cthulhu will devour them along with everyone else!
Praise he who slumbers in the briny deep!
