It also brings solidarity and helps people. Of course there's a positive and negative to it.

It does if they do it in the name of religion, or religion is the cause of it. That would mean the religion is doing "good".

Many are also helpful to society in bringing a moral background (if you look at most major modern laws, they can be found with a base in religion). There are positives and negatives and you're only looking at the negatives.
Also, you say "You only have to look at..." and then pick one of the most extreme examples.
