Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and other theologies, and violent acts.
Violence in the home, in education, within and between groups and nations have their roots in imperialist thinking; one person or group having dominion over another or others. Religion can cause violence, it creates insiders and outsiders, us and them.
