Quite true, as is the case with non-religious originated violence.

However, if you'll read the list of occurences I posted, you'll see that just about every major religion has in fact sanctioned and driven violence that frankly made the nazi's look like pussies.

I'm pretty sure that when the Pope is issuing edicts, that counts as an official sanction.

Now come on, 10 million killed in concentration camps I think trumps just about anything anybody else has done, not for lack of trying....maybe Stalin's purges compare.

Re: Do you think that the folks that followed Hitler were truly unique human beings?

If you consider volume the chief measurement.

Wiping out a whole village, burning the children and old folks in front of the parents while you gut them to make sure they didnt swallow any valuables...fully sanctioned by a religious leader...

Some of this **** ran on for decades, or on and off over a period of over a hundred years.

There were a lot of crusades and crusade spinoffs.

By the way, before someone takes license with my intent and spreads it across three threads in defiance of anything I actually said, I'm not trying to say that religion is the worst thing, that its caused the worst violence or the worst volume of violence.

Simply that almost every major religion has engaged in directed, wholesale, really unpleasant violence against their own people or non-believers/heathens. And looking at the original thread topic, that the nazi's arent unique at all - man has perpetuated horrible violence against man for all sorts of reasons. Sometimes for some pretty lousy ones. Sometimes with "authorization". Often without.

so Illinoisians are more religious than Indianans, and New Yorkers much more religious than West Virginians--and perhaps even than South Carolinians--my, my!

The most valuable indicator of whether a person has the same NAZI tendency to follow any hate-mongerinig leader is "POST COUNT". How much does a person desire attention, and that's your NAZI!

Yeah, look at that!* The Illini, expresssed as a percentage of religious organization members to total population, seem to be leading the Hoosiers!* Who would have thought?* Of course, come to think of it, we Illini are a very Blue State while those Hoosiers are a very Red State.

I wonder if being a "member" of a church, temple or mosque is the same as being "religious?"
