Consider religion a gun, if you will. It takes someone to shoot that gun. Saying religion is the cause of war is like saying that guns alone can kill people. It takes human greed, human leaders out for their own gain. No war since biblical times has been truly fought in God's name, only men exploiting the power of religion. Block this comment if you want, but then you'd only be practicing the ignorance you claim we preach.
Islamists are practicing torture, terrorism and warfare in the Name of their God, Allah. Women are treated like animals.
Israeli and Palestinians are fighting over territories for nothing more than their primitive religious differences, although they could easily join together and form a country on their own that supports both religions, without preference to either of them. There is nothing that stops the 2 parties from doing it, except for their imagi-, ... I mean, gods.
Christian Extremists, Crusaders and Pioneers have enslaved entire countries, stolen riches, persecuted unbelievers and even burnt people for proclamation of scientific discoveries, even though the components of Christianity have been proven to be untrue. All because god said so in the bible. African slaves had their hands cut off if they didn't work hard enough, which led christians to be even more upset if they didn't work more efficiently without hands.
