Is it ok to use Religion to discriminate, hate or kill?

Why do some feel it ok to use religion as a vessel of hatred? Does God want people to kill or hurt others in his name? Would you want someone using your name to sanction killing or hurting others?

Anyone can find a verse somewhere to justify why they should hate, spit on, unwelcome, destroy people's families, speak ill of, throw rocks at, bomb, call 8 year old girls "whores", tell women to sit in the back of the bus, tell women they can't speak at a family members funeral, tell women they can't learn Talmud or give words of the Torah.

People can find a verse to justify the right to do anything they feel like. This can be the justification to kill or discriminate against Jews, Non-Jews, Arabs, Christians, Women, Transgendered persons, Homosexuals, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Abortion Doctors, Atheists, Prostitutes, A women that gets raped, The homeless and many others!

Where is the line???
