The crusades alone killed millions upon millions of innocent pagans and muslims. The spanish inquisition tortured and killed everyone put to the question in the burning times.

What about those killed in the name of Humanism or racial cleansing or whatever else?
Just because some misguided people did something in the name of someone doesn't make that person bad or wrong.
For example if someone steals your ss# and spends millions of dollars on credit cards in your name are you a bad person did you do something wrong just because someone did something and said it was you?
Mat 22:36 "Teacher, what is the most important commandment in the Law?"
Mat 22:37 Jesus answered: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind.
Mat 22:38 This is the first and most important commandment.
Mat 22:39 The second most important commandment is like this one. And it is, "Love others as much as you love yourself."
Mat 22:40 All the Law of Moses and the Books of the Prophets are based on these two commandments.

It's really a matter of judgement.
The worst religious war ever was the Taiping Rebellion in China in the 1850s, where millions where killed. The Taipings were a really off-the-wall sort-of Christian sect, but I don't know that this war can honestly be blamed on Christianity.
What about the partition of India? Also millions of deaths, but can they really be assigned to Hindu or Muslim causes?
WWII, WWI, and various other small 20th century wars were not religious in nature.

There is no way to count those numbers accurately. Where would you put innocent bystanders who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
“A rational anarchist believes that concepts such as 'Church' ‘state’ and ‘society’ and ‘government’ have no existence save as physically exemplified in the acts of self-responsible individuals. He believes that it is impossible to shift blame, share blame, distribute blame . . . as blame, guilt, responsibility are matters taking place inside human beings singly and nowhere else. But being rational, he knows that not all individuals hold his evaluations, so he tries to live perfectly in an imperfect world . . . aware that his effort will be less than perfect yet undismayed by self-knowledge of self-failure.”

Millions of Catholics were killed by the Nazis. They are now martyrs. The Catholic Church has so many people listed as martyrs for the Faith.
Millions and Millions of Jews were killed by the Nazis. They died for their Faith.
So for the millions and millions of people Christians and Jews who died for their Faith,
Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas!

Excuse me. This is information that no one could possibly know or even find. I've never seen such claims here.
Edit: Oh, Robert? Did the questioner name atheists or pagans? Plus, you're WRONG! End of line...

Who cares? None of 'em ever existed anyway.

Athiests have outkilled everyone, with pagans a close second.
The Bible says to do violence to no man. Jesus has not authorized the church to kill anyone.
Luk 3:14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.
