I've heard it said that more people have been killed in the name of god than for any other reason. Is that true? Is religion responsible for most murder?
Ape: Hatred for any word person or thing is the Spirit of Murder resposnsible for all murder, starting with the murder of Love, by any person in any religon or in any religion of no religion.
Love or the Life of Love is what makes life or the life of Life worth living. People don't want to live is a world without Love, as the song says.
So any religionist or irreligionist who has Hate in their hearts for any opposite word or enemy-person is taking away the Life of Love which is the prop or stay of Life, or so is also taking away the Life of Life that is propped up by and is made worth living by the Life of Love.
Both those in any religion who hate any other religion or hate any non-religion, and those in no religion who hate the haters of any religion are all guilty of the mens rea of murder.
