Christianity and Islam are prosthelyzing religions intent on converting non-believers (unlike, say , Judaism) so 'Holy War' is a natural offshoot (n.b. Jihad and Crusade aren't the same thing), but plenty of other religions and cultures have practiced systematic holy wars; Hindus have done it, and probably the best example is the Aztecs whose whole culture was based around holy war.

The vast majority of Christian religions have been accused, at one time or another, of having their own version of the Bible. One Christian group, the Catholics, even claim that the Bible's not really all that important.

But, back on topic, the vast majority of world religions go hand-in-glove with politics and because of this are responsible for a huge amount of bloodshed worldwide. It's no coincidence that Jesus said religion was responsible for everyone who had died in wars.

And, back on the offtopic, at least Witnesses don't believe in going to war or involvement in politics. Whatever their faults those are stands that I admire and agree 100% with.

Being an agno-atheist I'd say Christianity as a whole or Islam holds that title.
