The thing about religious texts is that if someone is looking for justification from God to kill, they will find it. Meanwhile if a person is looking for God's messages about loving their fellow man, they will find that.
This is where so many atheists drive me up a wall with the assertion that religion is responsible for wars. Wasn't the Soviet Union an atheist based country, that went to war? If you remove religion from mankind, I am pretty damn sure there will still be wars and murder.
Religion doesn't cause wars, it is just a convenient marketing tool for rulers.
