Far too many people use the words of the religions of the world for their own twisted purposes. That endeavour is however helped by the fact that, from what I see, religious texts can be used to support almost any argument put forward. Just as one example, and only because it's from a book that I'm familiar with, on one hand we are told "Turn the other cheek", yet in the same book there is "An eye for an eye".
The pacifist would use the former to support their view, whilst the fighter would use the latter. Which one is wrong in beliefing that they are following the teachings of the book?
As far as I'm concerned anybody can believe whatever they want to believe as long as they don't try to enforce their beliefs on me either by word or force.
