Whoops! I meant that as a reply to the last post on page 5, and hadn't read page 6 yet...
I quote Dawkins, in The Devil's Chaplain, a book I have but have not yet read (I found the quote online):
"My point is not that religion itself is the motivation for wars, murders and terrorist attacks, but that religion is the principal label, and the most dangerous one, by which a "they" as opposed to a "we" can be identified at all."
Here is an example of how he does not claim that Northern Ireland and the problems in Iraq are entirely caused by religion.
