    Religion is taken-in with mothers' milk in Islamic countries and the American Bible Belt.

    Very little would change, since people citing to religion as a motivation for their actions are largely just taking whatever actions they would have taken anyway and then claiming divine inspiration.

    Most especially if all we're talking about here is the swapping out of one of the three male dominator god religions vomitted up in the middle east.

    Just like burning "witches" at the stake or using your Jeebus to justify sending your empire in to destablize the middle east continually. What's to explain. Nothing.

    Seeing the strange turns of history's events, the repudiation of a false religion is not beyond imagining.

    You mean Ireland - where Catholics and Protestants fought for hundreds of years?

    France, Germany, England and Spain? Try reading European history sometime. A thousand years of wars. All Christian nations.

    WWI and WWII - all Christian nations except for Japan.

    Christianity should be about peace and love, but then so should Islam, but there are always those in any religion who view the people holding different beliefs to theirs as some sort of insult they must defend themselves from.

    If people no longer saw Islam as viable, but wanted to remain in a religion, Christianity is the closest.
