    Because the religion who dont support love make war with religions who support love. So, it makes crash between both religions.

    Because every religion has something a little different from the others. Then these religions attract the overly protective type people, that in turn like to point out the "flaws" of other religions, and try to prove they are in some way the "true religion." Just like people in general having some thing to disagree about, religions have some thing to disagree about.

    Because religion makes people believes that they are fighting for the right cause. I don't try to say religion is bad. But people tend to be too emotional and think they are doing the rigt thing without even knowing is okay to wage a war? or worse without even knowing what's right and what's wrong.

    Religions support a "holier than thou" attitude.  Religions are a source of evil.

    Religions don't start wars, people do. Often people use their religion as a foundation to start wars.

    jayDee is correct religion does not cause wars but it is used to promote them by humans who try to justify the reason for fighting they have ulterior motives, think of any war in History and I bet that a reason for it will stem from Money, Oil, Land ownership, Power, Racial hatred (Judaism is a nation), and most recently Genetics, or hunger, food shortages, water shortages, fear and ignorance.  I am not a religious man but I am not bitterly against its purpose either and do see that it has been abused and used for human gain.

    First of all...All Religions support love and none preach war.

    It is the human who thinks he is so learned about that particular religion tends to mis-interpret the wrong message to the people across the globe which causes war and bloodshed.

    Have you compared the numbers of deaths to NON-RELIGIOUS countries?  You might be surprised.  The ATHIEST soviet union killed MILLIONS through starvation of their own citizens DURING PEACE TIME.  The ATHIEST Chinese killed about 60 MILLION of their own people using starvation again... and they did this DURING PEACE TIME!!  The Athiest country of cambodia (Pol Pot) killed a couple million.  Recently, the ATHIEST nation of North Korea is killing millions of THEIR own people. 

    Yes, religious wars have happened.  It is shamefull. But don't just overlook what the Athiest communists and socialists have done.

    It's not the religion that causes wars. People cause wars for their own greed and use religion as an issue.

    Sometimes the love that they want only favors them...

    The idea that religion causes wars is ludicrous. Religion is used by the power brokers to rally the non ruling class to die for the material gains of the ruling class. This has always been and will continue as long as the non ruling class believe their religions are exclusive - me vs. them.

    Religion and Religious people do not cause wars,it is rather the wars are created by selfish and greedy individuals or groups of people who have no interest in religion other than worldly gains.  Hitler was a Christian by name but by action he was an animal.
