Exclamation Attrocities committed in the name of religion

I'm quite fed up with people telling me that atheists are destroying society and religion is peaceful and all that. And they mention Hitler and Stalin as their arguments quite a lot. So I have decided to make a thread over here to mention the attrocities committed in the name of religion. There have been many threads over here which mention individual attrocities committed in the name of religion. But this is a compilation of them all. I have not made this thread with intention for things like "Mini-Woo spread" and stuff like that. However I have made it to expose religion. People suffer in the name of religion. And yet theists still say that without religion there is no morality or anything else they can say.

I am not sure about that one. Be interesting to check that one up. I know he had some webbing on his hands and the superstitious Orthodox Heads believed it was a mark of the devil.

BTW can anyone list the sort of things Christians and Jews etc have done as well? I'm not too sure on those. I know of the financial cons but other than that I'm not entirely sure.

I have at least one or two of these.

Too many to mention at the momment croc but I would suggest the crusades be a good starting point. Then there is the endless list of child sexual abuse commited by those worthy men of god namely catlick priests. I could go on and on but I need a beer and a swim.

While Russia was an atheist state for a few years and Stalin did oppose religious involvement in his country at the time, he also maintained a relationship with some of the bishops and the tsar, who believed in divine authority. What Stalin really opposed was the worshipping of others, he wanted people to worship himself instead. What is actually ironic is that now you can find Stalin images in Russia as a revered figure with holy references like Jesus. Would Stalin be rolling in his grave? I doubt it.
