While fine if you want to do a huge attack on religion for messed up reasons, I don't think it needs to be titled "by creationists" as that's mostly irrelevant to the massarcing and war pepetuated in the name of something. ArmondikoVsshole 15:41, 15 April 2009 (EDT)

You've probably got a point. I was having a go at (and to be honest, reacting to) Demeyer's use of the Kiebold picture. Perhaps a retitling is in order. Yours trulyDear Sir 15:53, 15 April 2009 (EDT)
Yeah. Put it as a "see also" on the examples of God personally killing people article or something. ArmondikoVsshole 15:57, 15 April 2009 (EDT)
Good idea, but not until a better title comes along. Ideas anyone? Yours trulyDear Sir 16:01, 15 April 2009 (EDT)

Either something like a "Violence perpetrated in the name of allegedly peaceful religions" kind of thing--or with a link/screenshot of the CP bit that inspired it and written as a direct response? CreamTwoSugars 16:04, 15 April 2009 (EDT)

That would mean a move to Conservapedia:space, or maybe essay. I'm not keen on the latter, even though it is basically me getting things off my chest. you title is on better lines than mine but a little long. "Massacres carried out in the name of God" perhaps? Yours truly
Dear Sir 16:11, 15 April 2009 (EDT)
Title long, yes, but it's the clash between violence and the "peacefulness" that you want to bring out..."God's love and violence"? "Peaceful religions, not so much"? I dunno...CreamTwoSugars 16:14, 15 April 2009 (EDT)
"Massacres (or "Killing") in the name of a peaceful faith" sounds ok - I think "allegedly" looks awkward in titles. Yours trulyDear Sir 16:24, 15 April 2009 (EDT)

The back and forth murder of Israeli Jews and Palestinian Muslims based on a mythical claim to the Holy Land.[edit]

Yeah, that's being awfully reductive. Nationalism has as much if not more to do with it. And there are Palestinian Christians involved too. Theory of Practice Peer-reviewed articles for everybody! 02:47, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

It depends on the intent of the list. Is it in the name of or caused by a "peaceful faith." Certainly, the former is (in some instances) correct and the latter is false. There are other ambiguous ones on this list too. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 02:52, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Should there be an explanation in the article...[edit] to why people murder in the name of peace? (talk) 01:51, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

Unclear reference removed[edit]

A BoN added a reference to "Cristeros and hierarchy: variations of the same topic Agustรญn Vaca" under the heading "Massacres in the name of secular humanism." The subject PDF is found here but is in Spanish and I can't tell if this is an appropriate citation for the article or not, so I've removed it from the article until someone can give some context justifying this. โ€”cosmikdebris talk stalk 12:36, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

The source is blatant Catholic propaganda and in no way reliable. I can't tell who the author is supposed to be affiliated with. He seems to be a nobody.๐”–๐”ฒ๐”ช๐”ช๐”ž ๐”„๐”ฑ๐”ฅ๐”ข๐”ฌ๐”ฉ๐”ฌ๐”ค๐”ฆ๐” ๐”ž (๐”ฎ๐”ฒ๐”ข๐”ฏ๐”ข๐”ฉ๐”ฆ๐”ฐ) (๐”ฐ๐” ๐”ฏ๐”ฆ๐”ญ๐”ฑ๐”ฒ๐”ฏ๐”ž) 19:14, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
