    yes, but they have become the fact of millions of people.and now, many religions have lots of sects among themselves,and this is what we must refuse and regard as a real problem of todays religious life.A normal muslim doesnt hate any nation ,but if he is a member of a denomination,he is potentially a militant or radical.as for other religions,it is the same.ı take far eastern teachings aside.

    in fact, hitler was an atheist,but his crimes arent related to his being religious or not...

    But Vatican never did anything to prevent him from commiting holocaust, as he did for the bosnian genocide....

    My favorite quote from him.

    That's all you have?

    I might agree with him. Many churches do more harm than help.

    And what is your comment on my quote from Franklin where he clearly states the exact opposite of your claim that he was an atheist?

    Yes, Hitler's pope pius XII didn't care about the holocaust. A very christian thing to do indeed.

    Thats the myth of the founding fathers. Christians will believe they were christians. Atheists will believe they weren't. They were so vague you can make the argument they were communists if you wanted to.
