    It wasn't long ago when Catholic terrorists from Ireland were the biggest threat in the UK -
    Of course I know abut IRA, but I understand, their aim was to get the Northern Ireland, not to convert or punish infidels, am I wrong?

    I think what I'm trying to say is that there are evil people in all countries, and some will use religion as an excuse
    This confirms, that there is an element of justification inside religion, for agressive behaviour, if not precisely in doctrine, then in a living doctrine which is an interpretation. It either tells to be agressive, or contains something else, that is may lead to it, a cognitive bias for example, in my opinion both. I'm not saying it's worse than lack of education or bad rising, but it consumes time, misleads, and is a good excuse not think.

    The annoying thing with this is that now people are crapping on faith schools as a whole. I went to a Catholic school, and despite my agnosticism, I can honestly say that faith was never forced on me, and my education was really good. Faith schools should continue to exist, but should be closely monitored all the same.

    because rather than deal with the problem we have to be seen as treating all faiths the same (when it's clear they are not all the same).

    It's sad really but what else can we do.

    You are mostly correct, but there was a religious aspect. There were Protestant and Catholic terrorist groups which matched with wanting independence or to remain part of the UK. Sometimes these groups would target random people according to their faith. Religious leaders became involved on both sides; not in the actual murders but stirring up hatred. It was quite common for the Pope to be described as the anti-christ, and in many places schools were segregated according to religion.

    Yes, religion does have a lot to answer for. Both sides in World War one were told by their priests that they were fighting for God, and he was on their side. It always puzzled me, given the commandment 'Thou shalt not kill'. But religion has also brought peace to people, and many peace campaigners have strong religious beliefs. I guess religion can be like alcohol. It makes some people love everyone they are with, and makes others want to fight.
