50. maybe you need to address that one within yourself...
Spirituality and religion are not the same thing at all. And while I would agree with you that religion has been a cause for too much war, especially Christan religions, war has never been a by-product of people who were truly interested in understanding their own spirituality. Religion is one path. There is only one God, but many, many paths to understanding God.

What was it that they used to say in AA, "Religion is for people who don't want to go to Hell, Spirituality are for people who have been there".
