I'm going to break the normal ROE and answer your question in a serious manner: Christians are no more scoundrels than Muslims are terrorists, Catholics are peadophiles or Pagans are into burning people alive in huge Wicker Men. One cannot make blanket statements about ANY religion.
However, the major world religions do make excellent cover stories/excuses for some very devious and dangerous people. "I was only following orders" has'nt worked since Nuremburg, but it's surprising how many people still fall for, "God/Allah told me to do it."
Religion is a bit like Democracy: it's a nice idea that is ruined as soon as people try to use it in the real world...
