In other words, I would say Not all religious people are murdering, mutilating, gay-bashers, but if you are one you're probably religious.

I'm pretty sure that MOST of the murders, rapes, "gential mutilation"(whatever you mean by that) and other horrible things that go on now and in history AREN'T motivated by God or Religion. In fact, many murders are commited by Atheists. Interesting...isn't it?

That was a load of bullshit since Christianity never really took root in Japan, nor did any western religion for that matter. The majority of Japan is Buddhist and therefore don't believe that God exists. Also, their culture has been based on extreme respect and rigidity for over a thousand years. So basically, you failed with that one since I actually HAVE a brain and some intelligence.
