On the dreamy, peaceful nature of religion

I was amused to see this today:
Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Representatives of some of the world's major religions have concluded a three-day interfaith meeting in Sarajevo by calling for peace around the world.
These people are living in a dream world. Almost all the atrocities in the world are committed by religious zealots for religious reasons. But religion is peaceful, doncha know. Uh-huh.

From today's news:
A movie attacking Islam's prophet Muhammad sparked assaults on U.S. diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt on Tuesday. A Libyan security official reported an American was shot to death as protesters burned the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, and in Cairo, protesters scaled the walls of the U.S. embassy walls and replaced an American flag with an Islamic banner.
And as you know, it never ends. Yet they blindly insist that religion is a good thing. Like hell it is.
