How many lives are lost due to fighting in general? It's disingenuous to blame only religion for religious wars. Even if politics was never a factor, is the death toll from religious wars statistically significant when compared to non-religious wars? Non-religious wars have killed far more people. The wars of the last century and a half have been non-religious and killed more people than lived during the times of religious warfare. Politics clearly kills more people than religion and I believe it's the real underlying pressure that used religious differences to inspire political expansion and wealth theft.

Also, why would you use an outdated example of why religion is bad? Religious warfare is not responsible for modern wars. Is it because asserting religion was purely responsible for deaths that happened a long time ago is unfalsifiable?

Everything contains good and bad. If we don't like something we tend to give the bad more weight. I think the unbiased balance of good and bad for religion is still on the positive side, but making an objective analysis of that is impossible because how do you quantify it?
