It all basicaly comes down to this, Fundamentalists are fundamentalists. it doesnt really matter what religion anyone is, a fundermentalist will find a way of perverting other peoples true beliefs to get what they want, wich would seem is usually revolution and power.

People who blow up buildings in the name of their god, people who fight over land in the name of their god, people who preach and judge people in the street (as a guy with long hair i get this one a lot from christian fundys) and people that comit mass genocide in the name off religion, from the medieval crucades to terrorist atacks of any form. it comes down to the only religion they truly beleve is in them.

So leave religion alone, its not its fault, its just the warped sick people of this planet.
