Looking back at history, do you think religion is a foundation for disagreement and war?

Very true ElleBee, I hadn't considered the Holocaust in my question, but it is an important note to be made. Thankyou
Sorry, ElleBee, I disagree, the Jews were just a scapegoat. He had an insasitiable lust for power, and he hated every human that didn't fit into his ideals of blond, blue eyed Arayans.
Do you think Renee, that the leaders of warring religions are afflicted by pride and this is why they try to enforce their views, and become frustrated when their work fails?
I do think pride and ego plays a lot in this, but also remember some totally believe their religion is the only truth, and act according. Them and us is a dangerous belief. We seen this with Hilter and others.
An interesting point-of-view, MickS. I like the idea that religon doesn't cause war, people do. Thanks for your input
Again an interesting view point, thanks for your contribution Zachariahs78.
Do you think religious disagreements form the basis of these conflicts though, or simply compound a conflict that already exists?
