Now your just arguing semantics. The things people do for religion can be bad, and they can be good, depending on the person leading the religion, or a person in power. Yet these people doing the bad things feel justified in their actions because of their religion.
Religion is bad, it promotes hatred and war. Not in the religion in itself, but in the way people interpret the religion, and the fear that if some other religion might be right we have wasted our lives. So by eradicating the people who believe differently they will have the advantage.
By all means believe in god, do it in the privacy of your own home, and don't bring it into the public. Your relationship with a deity is not worth the life of someone else. Ever.
The world would be a million times better place if religion wasn't socialized. People could believe what they want to believe and no one would have to get hurt.
