Holy War?

“It would be almost unbelievable, if history did not record the tragic fact that men have gone to war and cut each other’s throats because they could not agree as to what was to become of them after their throats were cut.”     -Walter P. Stacy

Is that what is being said through the behaviors of many religious sects, past and present?
