    No it is political diversity causing wars. People try to abuse religion as a political tool similar to the way others might use money, influence, law or business politically.
    Usually atheists try to blame all religion for war while forgetting that in the modern world it is the atheist states creating war ( eg North Korea, Russia and China).

      It was religion in the Crusades, and also when the 4 old powers of France, Spain, Portugal and England divide the world. There was the Spanish Inquisition. And now in modern times Islam continues its world conquest using war, by means of terrorism.

    What do you mean "becoming?" Historically religion has always been the cause of war.

    The only religion causing war right now is Islam.
    * several groups fighting local governments to set up religious states, like ISIS, Al Shabab, Boko Haram
    * several areas where Muslims are fighting to overthrow the local government and have Muslim only areas but not specifically to set up an Islamic state, from the Philippines to Urgyurs in China to northern Nigeria to Muslim enclaves in the EU where police won't go
    * Islamic infighting, Sunni vs Shia and both of those killing Almaddhi and Sufi, especially bad in Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, Bangladesh
    * Muslims moving into an area and then intimidating and even killing locals, like those in Thailand, Burma. They've been murdering Buddhist teachers who taught children science, because it wasn't haram.

    So right now, there is a religion causing war - Islam, as it seeks to either overthrow secular governments to impose religious ones, dominate other groups with Islamic law or killing other Muslims.
