Consider Hindu violence on Christians. A Hindu mob poured gasoline over the car Graham Staines and two sons were in and burned them to death. Their crime was physically helping lepers in India who then converted to Christianity.(At their trial Mrs. Stains made nationwide headlines by saying, "I forgive you."
and of course that equates to the 15,000 plus deadly terror attacks worldwide committed in the name of islam since 2001..
i think your view of reality is somewhat skewed

It seems there are a lot of violent opinions expressed on the net between "Christians" and "Muslims" as to who is more violent. There is also a recurring theme that both and actually any religion is responsible for wars and deaths. Considering history, I think atheists are responsible for more deaths than any religion. Hitler was a westerner but not a Christian. His religion was of the occult if any.
Do some more research

I can only comment on Christianity with some security, but I would like to look into other mainstream religions too...

I agree that it's abhorrent to try to align war with all Christians, wherein we have rightly mentioned that atheists are responsible for a devil of a lot more astocities and only in this last century. Stalin, Pol Pots, Mao Zedong, Hitler, Mussolini were all religious opressors and the former 3 stark atheists. In the reign of Stalin, Over 100,000 clergymen were shot during the purges of 1937–1938 - not to mention another 20 million or so killed in his famines and murders. And don't be under the impression that Christianity isn't still being opressed today... In China, Christians are forced to practise their faith underground in secret much of the time, and the equivocal government might sometimes be responsible for priests' dissapearances...

Biblical quote:

Matthew 7:21 "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven".

This is a biblical disclaimer, basically saying that just because you say you're doing something "in the name of religion" or you were raised in religion, this doesn't mean what you're doing is right nor does it comply to what your God wants for you.

I think it would be distasteful to apply taboo to certain sects and beliefs. "Religion is responsible for all wars and deaths". "If you're an atheist, then you're a murderer like Stalin". Historically, because there were less atheists (and atheists were aligned with pagans), people of a religious background were ofcourse responsible for the majority of deaths, but in the last century when atheism has had its hearing, those aforementioned dictators were responsible for millions upon millions of murders between them in their small time of existence.

SORRY TO BURDEN YOU WITH THE FACTS ...... HITLER WAS CATHOLIC AND PROUD OF IT .... MANY OF HIS PUBLIC SPEECHES PRAISED JESUS, AND HE CLAIMED THAT HE WAS FINISHING THE WORK THAT JESUS BEGAN, WHEN HE DROVE THE JEWS FROM THE TEMPLE ..... SOME OF HITLERS TOP HENCHMEN PLAYED AROUND WITH THE OCCULT, BUT NOT HITLER ..... HE MADE CHRISTIAN EDUCATION MANDATORY IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND EVEN RECEIVED A SPECIAL ACCORD FROM THE VATICAN .... HE WAS AN ALTER BOY IN HIS CHURCH AS A CHILD ..... OF COURSE, WHEN HE WAS THE LEADER OF THE COUNTRY HE WAS NOT AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF HIS CHURCH; MOST HEADS OF STATE ONLY GO TO STATE SPORADICALLY .....

Islam is responsible for 90% of the terror in the world. Muslims are 20% of the world's population. If just 20% of those are good Muslim Jihadists following Muhammad's example, they are 2000% more violent than the rest of us. Terror apart from Islam is insignificant.
I think everyone here is missing the point completely.
I know for a fact that the majority of Americans, being as ignorant as they are, never even heard of Islam before 9/11, yet they quickly blamed it on "mooslems" without confirmation.
Osama never openly admitted to 9/11. It would help if you people understood Arab, not faux-news.

Also, how many instances of "islamic terrorism" were there before 9/11? When a few arab guys dressed in headgear allegedly fly planes into tall buildings, the whole world assumes the entire 1.2bn Muslim population is hostile. If that were the case, why aren't all these Muslim states at war with themselves/others?

Christians massacred 90 million africans during the great african colonial land grab. 15 million native americans slaughtered by christians in Canada for refusing to convert to christianity.

An entire civilisation of people wiped from the face of the Earth by Christians in Central America.

Hitler, a catholic allegedly killed 6million jews and over 45 million europeans.

Britains Opium wars in China.

Modern times, remember Bush's "war on terror" speech? He, along with his fellow american fundamentalists slaughtered over 1 million iraqis in his "crusade", not to mention Afghanistan also.

How many young children were raped by American forces in Iraq and Afghanistan?

Today, western "christian" nations continue to loot, rape and pillage third world nations for their natural resources.

Islam might have killed millions in its past, but it seems Christianity is always in the lead when it comes to the body count.
PS, when was the last time a "muslim" state attacked a western nation? think about that.

The conflicts in the middle-east only exist because former colonial powers cannot keep their big noses out of their domestic affairs.

I think it is obvious that man will use any means possible to justify any actions thinkable or unthinkable, religion or no religion.

That TOTALLY equates to the slaughter of over 80 million human lives. What an intelligent point! The deaths of 3 christians is equally tragic and sickening as the death of over 80 million non-christians! You are SO right on the money! Thanks for pointing out the arrogant ignorance of you and your fellows. Throwing stones, glass houses... pots and kettles... all of that good stuff. Was that condescending enough? Because you probably deserve worse.

If we take the whole human history, im pretty sure a religion did the most damage. Atheism is quite a recent phenomenon.
And yes, my guess is Islam.

Religion will always be the tyrants vehicle, whether killing in the name of, or purging the different beliefs.. The invisible man in the sky is used to corral the poor ignorantl commoner. Religion is then further used to suppress any education and progression of the populace, religion, until recent times in Western culture, has been in charge of education and political doctrine. Resource and land grabbing has always been done in the name of the Almighty. I'll never understand How people will follow an invisible man in the sky who only bothers to speak to them through tomatoes, paintings, and other vagaries

That's absurd. Hitler was a Catholic. Read a book!
