    I think in most instances organized religion does not lead to organized hate groups/crime, but I have never know any atheist to hate another person for race or sex, only creed. I have bared witness to the worst religion has to offer; me living in the in the bible belt, but I can not give a certain answer because I have a limited amount of experience in an even more limited area.

    I think in most other areas besides that of blind hate, religion and crime have little to do with each other. But then again this area needs alot more study perhaps the link will help more than I can.

    how does religion relate to crime?

    God does not tell people to commit crimes ....He tells them not to commit crimes. I've never seen it preached and that includes moral crime as well. I will admit I've seen things that were not repented excused but now we are talking about human beings not God.

    However, people do have something called free will. Sure, there are many sitting in jail today that claim to love our Lord. Unless they have repented and changed....is that logical? On a positive note, those who do ask Him into their life after hitting bottom, never ever get turned away...never. By then I think people figure out that He is the only one who will love and discipline with love because getting one's way all the time never worked.

    In a nut shell ..All religions are a form of insanity,...My Gods better than yours , etc etc......I must do this or that or God will get angry with me .....

    I agree with the statement .....Religion is the devils ace trump, any religion in-braces ,lies, deceit, pride,hatred...and so on

    Religion is what you can do for God....and the answer to that is Nothing.....

    Yes there is a God... but there is no religion attached

    in all honesty, it doesn't. i have seen christians, muslims, jews, pagans, atheists, and so many others commit crimes that were all similar in nature.
