Subject: RE: BS: Qu: Regarding Religion
There's a gulf of difference between killing people in the name of atheism and killing people because they're atheists. In fact, I don't recall any of your hit-list ever saying that they were coming to get you because you're not an atheist like me. Dictators with expansionist notions kill people to gain even more territory and power. Religion is the veneer of respectability they attempt to cover themselves with in order to convince their own side that what they're doing is right. My view is that many people in history have been killed in the name of religion but that very few actually have been killed because of their religion. There has nearly always been another reason. I dislike all organised religions but if I want to find sticks to beat them with I can find plenty without resorting to dishonesty.
