Ultimately I believe Man themselves is to blame for most of the issues.
I have to ask, Does dislike for religion itself turn you away from the bible? I could see how it would. But as I mentioned it brings out in the bible that God does not approve of these men using his name for things he didn't send his son (jesus) to teach. Jesus did not teach war, above all was love.
Matt 22 : 36-40 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." - NIV
Micah 4:3 "and he will judge between many peoples, and will decide concerning strong nations afar off: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning-hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. " - ASV
