I would argue that this is a misuse of religion to justify one's selfish agenda when in fact such people do not believe that they are doing anything to serve any god.
Interesting discussion. What I really wonder is where do meanness and hate come from? We can defend our territory, our hunting ground and our farm without hating.

So what is the dudes name?
