I don't believe it is necessarily religion itself, especially in this day and age, but, I do believe that it has been man all along that has distorted what the religion is supposed to be or mean for his own gain and/or control over the masses (in the place of God, really).  

 

But, there is plenty of violence and encouragement to commit violence in most religious texts.  In the Bible, alone, the Old Testament conflict with the New Testament, and in the Old Testament there is a lot of references that encourage committing violence, there is plenty of sexism against women, and there is plenty of information that basically teaches condemnation, segregation and condescendence against those who do not believe/practice the same religion.

 

So, of course it is not religion per say, but how people have manipulated, not only what others will actually know, of what was really in (or supposed to be in) the religious text in the first place, but how the deliberate misinformation and subjective revisionism of religious texts have played THE part in reshaping (or shaping) the psychi, basic instincts, fears, and perceptions of human beings.
