Socialism, Communism, Fascism, Totalitarianism,
Dictators, Pol Pot types, Eugenists, and I certainly wouldn't label many if any of those as "religious". Your failure is in not making distinctions between religions or groups, prefering to foster a prejudicial attitude and apply it toward all, even without making exceptions for those who don't fit the mold, which is pretty much what the worst sort of racists do too.
No, I can't accept your view because it is severly skewed. I suspect you feel inadequate in some way to meet the standards demanded of and by religion, by God, and therefore have this rebellious attitude to all that is considered as having something to do with God and those who seek to follow Him.
However, your personal Bigotry toward all things religious is your own to suffer from and small comfort I can see that you might derive from it.
And to Roger; Crusades were initiated by the warlike Muslims and a reaction to them just as the Allies reacted to Hitler and the Nazis, so no points scored there against the religious.
I'll leave any answer on the Inquisition to the Catholic in this forum if he wishes.
IRA = Irish Republican Army. I see no religion in that description, in fact it pretty much sums up the movement which is nationalist, not religious, because if it was, then all Catholics everywhere would be involved in helping them, which is not the case at all. In fact, to point to the IRA as some sort of attack on religion is a very weak position to take.
