I keep hearing that Religious wars have killed more people in history than non-Religious wars, but I can't find an accurate total anywhere. I know the Crusades starting in 1095 were wars blessed by the Pope to either "covert or be slayed", and the total is not know, but estimated at around 2 Million. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religious_war But then you look at a non-religious war like WW2 and how over 60 Million people died. It's true that Hitler hated the Jews, but his main goal in WW2 was his thinking that the Aryan race was supreme over all races. That is why along with the 7 Million Jews that died, over 10 Million Chinese died, over 20 Million Soviets died, etc. Or even the latest Iraq war, the main goal there was to find "weapons of mass destruction" and end terrorism, but it wasnt to convert Muslims or they face death(imagine the uprising there lol).
