If religion is about peace why are some of the worst wars caused by religion?


Look at the Romans waging war against the Jewish stronghold at Masada. Hunting and killing because of religion not land, they had already fled their homes and lands. Through the years so much hate. The pagans of Ireland were persecuted by the protestants, young families stolen and killed; lands and merger dwellings stolen; then those that were shot for their beliefs, refusing to conform.

    Religion is also a powerful platform: that is a great comment and one that is very direct. Thank you for that kaloomba.

    So if there was no religion it would just be another belief of sorts that would be the governing factor. Ah! the world we live in. Thanks Tamara.

    Cool conclusion. I think we mean "equal in the eyes of God". My neighbor is much more crafty than I. Thank you for a nice answer.

    The idea of controling people and preventing them from learning the truth about the real God seems a little off the wall, but then you think about it: and that really is what is happening today. People killing in the name of their God.
