I believe that it is an absolute abomination to lay the blame for the majority of wars, racism, and perversion in the history of humankind on religions.

I agree with NateSean. People cause conflict and hate, and they use religion as an excuse. Yes, the Bible for instance does spout some rather hateful things (for example, that women are inferior, and so on) but I think it's telling that the same people who cite Leviticus to justify their homophobia ignore the fact that Leviticus also condemns polyester and priests with sight problems. It's just an excuse.
