Religion has been the excuse for such heinous acts in the past! It's truly appalling to think about things like the Inquisition and so many other "Holy Wars" that still go on today.

The idea that one group of people can be better than another or have the right to kill simply because of some stupid doctrinal teaching is absurd.

Some of the most disturbing horror films are religion-ba<x>sed stories.

Stephen Weinburg (Nobel prize winning physicist) quotation from an article in The New York Review of Books some years ago (approximate) "There are a lot of examples of good people doing good and evil people doing evil, but for good people to do evil, that takes religion."
