Re: US Ambassador in Libya Killed

I rarely discuss politics or religion online, it serves no purpose other than to piss people off. But I have to comment that it is not religion that pushes (most) people to abuse it. It's power, and religion provides these people an excuse. But it's true with everything. Science, philosophy, religion, even economics have had the sad fate of being used as a tool for people to control, subjugate, or kill other people.

Look at Charles Darwin, controversial to many, but an all around decent man. His cousin used him and his finding on evolution as a tool to promote eugenics, which was used as an excuse to sterilize or cast people who were different out of society. It was even used by nazis as an excuse to kill Jews and other unfavorables.
