Well, every country and religion has it's challenges.
It bothers me somewhat that some people treat their religion like the way they treat taking their dog out for a walk. Many people just don't want to "get their hands dirty", and get to the heart of Scripture. Scripture is drama, poetry, verse, song. It still leaves many things open to interpretation. Even amongst different versions of the Bible, you can find things tilted in a different direction. So, I would say, it is the people, not the religion that has caused so many problems.

Jay :) IMHO...
