118. Step back, take a breath.
Religion is not the enemy. It is any strongly held belief system (memeplex). These all will eventually require the destruction of any competing system.

Some religions, like Unitarianism, eschew strongly held beliefs and are a model for secularists and theists alike. Why not ask how many people have been violently killed through the ages by "true believers" in any belief system?

Except for murders committed by thieves, you could probably cover all of them.
