    Hahah! First of all, what does it mean to be religious? Strictly speaking, most of those who are considered religious aren't religious, rather are just a bunch of hypocrites ~!! That's the way I see it. If one sincerely respects the principles of the Divine God and clearly understands them without misinterpretation, and put them to practice, then one will surely become divine - good in nature.

    Just try to practice what you learnt.

    How is severe Anti-Semitism shown by a country and its government considered an act of religion? Frankly Hitler just used the Jews to fuel Germany's hate. He could have just as easily used the French given the animosity they have for each other, the fact was it was easier to use the Jews since they were already in the country in large numbers.

    Now like I said just because people miss-use something doesn't mean that something is wrong. Furthermore the removal of that something doesn't mean the action of “wrong doing” will be foregone. Just because they use so called "religion" as there justification doesn't mean if they lacked a "religion" to use that they would not still commit the same crimes.

    Australia took away private gun ownership in 2001 to reduce crime and violence and in return, the crime rate has steadily risen....why? Guns don't kill, people do. You can argue that guns make it easier and I will state if you want to do it then ease doesn't matter...you will find a way and the rate and number of crimes proves it. Religion is no different. EVERYTHING YOU DO YOU HAVE THE CHOICE TO DO IT. Stop blaming others and take the responsibility for it yourself already.

    Here is a link to crime stats for Australia from the Australian Government.

    Religion is totally not bad. Without religion, man in the beginning of times and even now would not have faith, and therefore society as we know it may never have progressed as far as it has. You have to look at the bigger picture when you talk about the crusades. And that is the politics. War is usually a political agenda which involves getting land for living on or land for it's valuable resources. (i.e. oil, farmland, bays, etc.) However people do not want to fight just so their government can widen their boundaries, they have to have a motive to drive them to fight. What better cause to fight for than that of the divine? From this perspective, using religion as a motive to rally troops to fight is genius. However due to war's immorality, it leaves its combatants in a loss of faith. Which naturally leads to question if their ways are truly sacred. That, I think, is where people sometimes get the idea that religion is bad; when it's used to push a political agenda unto it's innocent followers.

    It solely depends on who you are, I think.
