Religion isn't the cause of wars - it's the insistence that your religion is the only correct one and that you have the right and obligation to force others to believe as you do. |
When religion brings a person comfort, tranquility, and empathy for others it's a very, very good thing. Unfortunately it also seems to bring out anger, hatred, and intolerance in a whole lot of people, and then it's a very, very bad thing.
