Note how the genocides occur almost exclusively in nations marked by godlessness or Islam? Where God isn't, Death is.

I'm not ascribing this necessarily to religion per se, but to the morality that derives from religion. And in the Peace Sweepstakes, it would seem that Christianity is emerging as the top contender.

Christianity went through its killing-spree period when the best weapons were pikes and matchlocks (the Thirty Years' War). The fanatics of the time did their best, but their best just doesn't stack up very well against the power of a modern industrial state.
