Religion causes a lot of problems. It is the reason for many wars and more specificly the treatment of Native Americans when the Europeans came to the Americas.

It's often more of an excuse than it is an actual reason. "Manifest destiny" was not solely about spreading a doctrine of God to the Native American people, it was about exploiting the resources their land had to offer.

Native Americans got screwed, no doubt about it. However, a great many of their deaths were caused by being exposed to viruses they had no resistance to.
