Sure, we have.
But It is related to the concept of peace you beleive in.
Some people beleive that peace is when you love others & support them even if your suffer sometimes, when you give even you need.
While for other people, destroying others for their benifits & pleasure is the peace.
Don't reckon any religion is especially un-peaceful all by itself, methinks it's the followers who make it more or less so.
On second thought, though... oh, never mind
Taoism, Buddhism. Strong respect for life, even insects. I think Western religions tend more to respect only the life of those "like" ourselves so end up justifying war and violence easier.
We do have one self-proclaimed religion of peace and we know how they are doing.
I know from reading the teachings of Jesus that he taught a non-violent religion. Turn the other cheek, go the extra mile, clothe the naked, feed the hungry, etc. Unfortunately, like all of the religions at points and times, it has been co-opted by the powers that be to manipulate the masses into doing things contrary to Jesus' teachings in his name. According to Jesus' teachings, following him is non-violent.
I responded using non-violent rather than peaceful because at times we will rock the boat (through non-violent means) if we are truly following Jesus and caring for the things that he instructed us to care for. We should not be able to see oppression and just let it go. We are willing to die but not kill.
All religions are peaceful in bottom line, but the people i.e. followers are not.
i'd have to say only buddhism. all other religions claim to be peaceful but history has proven that to be a lie.
Atheism, Budhism, Bahai, etc. there are plenty of peaceful religions, but none of them seem to be monotheisms.
