  French Wars of Religion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The French Wars of Religion were a series of conflicts fought between Catholics and Huguenots (Protestants) from the middle of the sixteenth century to the Edict of Nantes in 1598, including civil infighting as well as military operations.
At Orléans, Francis, Duke of Guise was assassinated, and Catherine's fears that the war might drag on led her to negotiate a truce and the Edict of Amboise (1563).
The essential first step in this was the negotiation of the Edict of Nantes, which, rather than being a kind of genuine toleration, was in fact a kind of permanent truce between the religions, with guarantees for both sides.

Religion, as a motivator and catalyst to garner popular support for waging war, may or may not be rooted in justifiable purpose.
Religion played the essential role amongst the individual combatants and was the essential fabric of the two warring cultures.
The clear distinction and premise of this essay is that, while religion may motivate, and in fact may become the essential ingredient for the sustainment of war, it is seldom the cause.

 Le Mars Daily Sentinel: Story: The Civil War & civil religion
The second great consequence of the Civil War was the assertion of rule by law and the end of secessionist ideology.
As momentous as the achievements and consequences of the Civil War were in their time and place, it is important to recognize that they did not render necessary or inevitable the subsequent status of the war as the American phenomenon; other events or movements MIGHT have enjoyed that status.
World War II could also occupy the hallowed status of the defining American phenomenon as its 16 million servicemen and over 300,000 killed decisively inaugurated the "American Century." But neither these, or many other contenders, have displaced the Civil War in the American consciousness.

Kerrey’s comments are typical of the modern ethos of war: war may be necessary, but it is inherently base and vile, and it taints everything it touches.
The modern ethos of war was first articulated by Erasmus, who argued at length that war was unnatural and unfitting for human beings, and that even just wars are morally unacceptable.
War is not to be entered into lightly—especially modern war with its propensity for disproportionate measures in combat.

 Swans Commentary: Religion and War in Yugoslavia, by David Jovanovic - djovan01
The 1990s wars in Yugoslavia have often been called, in literature and in the media, an ethnic conflict; endless newspaper articles and television broadcasts have analysed results of "ethnic" hatred in the former Yugoslav republics.
According to Mark Juergensmeyer, Professor of Global Studies and Sociology at UCSB and author of the book "The New Cold War: Religious Nationalism Confronts the Secular State," it is the rhetoric of Cosmic War that maintains the competition and conflict between distinct institutionalized approaches to the divine.
In this context, the religious identity driven war in the former Yugoslavia can be seen as an extension of a greater struggle that does not encompass only the visible realm but the invisible one as well.

Depending on whom you ask, Scientology is either a legitimate religion offering followers a route to spiritual enlightenment and salvation, or a fraudulent scam -- and, let me say at the outset, I have no opinion as to which characterization is the correct one.
What is clear, however, is that relations between adherents and critics have never been pleasant; passions run feverishly high on both sides, and the Scientologists have often been accused of dealing, shall we say, rather harshly with their critics.
Perhaps the most obvious implication of the Scientology War is that on the new global network that measure of control has all but vanished.

 The War on Religion by Rep. Ron Paul
The justification is always that someone, somewhere, might possibly be offended or feel uncomfortable living in the midst of a largely Christian society, so all must yield to the fragile sensibilities of the few.
The establishment clause of the First Amendment was simply intended to forbid the creation of an official state church like the Church of England, not to drive religion out of public life.
This is the real reason the collectivist Left hates religion: Churches as institutions compete with the state for the people’s allegiance, and many devout people put their faith in God before their faith in the state.

When Pastor Martin Niemoeller was first arrested in 1937 for his vocal opposition to Hitler's Third Reich policies, he was Der Fuehrer's personal prisoner, and from there, the decorated World War I U-boat captain began a descent into a hellish existence the world has not since seen.
This book, first published in 1942, contains the account of Neimoeller's face-to-face discussions with Hitler, and tells the story of his eight-year imprisonment and his struggle against the greatest killing bureaucracy of the twentieth century.
