Holy books instruct us to kill people for working on the wrong day (Exodus 31:15), or saying the wrong words (Leviticus 24:17) or because they're homosexual (Leviticus 20:13), and millions believe these are the words of God, so is it possible that religions inherently breed violence, or is it just some religions, or do they only do so if people really take their religions seriously? Most people would condemn a person who said these things, so why do they worship gods who say them?Answer Question

I agree too, but a person who is a fanatic, hung up so much on certain convictions derived from whatever his holy book states and determined to as much damage to those who supposedly sin, according to him, can cause so many deaths, injuries, damage or destruction of infrastructures, necessary for societies to function, etc. that in my opinion the good in religions is overshadowed by the bad that religions have in them.
