Really? What major religions would that be? If you are talking about Christianity (e.g. Crusades, colonialism, counter-reformation, etc.), let me point out a simple fact to you. When muslims rape and pillage and force conversions, they are following the fundamental tenets of their founder and their Koran. When so-called Christians do this, they are going directly against the teachings of their founder, Jesus Christ. See the difference?

Look at the track record. Muhammad killed many and made the first Jihads. Jesus killed no one and in fact healed a few. I wonder if there are any healings in the Koran by Mohammed. I'll bet not! Mad Mo' was too busy making wars and looking for child brides.

At the moment, Islam is the world's number one troublemaker. Everywhere there are Muslims, there is hate, discontent, poverty, riots and war.

It is a stretch to find support for this kind of behavior in the teachings of Jesus, but it has been done. I've heard people within the last week on television say that war can be justified by Jesus' driving the moneychangers out of the temple. I find this a stretch.

I say every time I get the opportunity that goodness and evil are properties of individuals rather than ideas. Of course cultures that have stupid beliefs are more susceptible to being led by evil people. that is why we say "those who believe absurdities will commit atrocities."
