How Many Have Been Killed Because of Religion?

The accusation is often made by the non-religious that more people have been killed in the name of religion than for any other reason in human history. Mind you, they make this accusation without providing any evidence. For those people, here are some statistics:

People Killed By Godless Individuals:

Cambodia's Pol Pot: 1.5 million - 2 million (Los Angeles Times, July 31, 2005, Book Review section, Part R, Page 8)

Russia's Joseph Stalin: At least 20 million (Los Angeles Times, May 22, 1005, Book Review section, Part R, Page 3)

China's Mao Tse Tung: 75 million (London Daily Mail, July 14, 2005, and Time magazine, June 13, 2005, page 48)
