Must every thread about religion turn into an exercise in how religion is inherently a force for evil?

It's derailing this thread
as we speak. I'm coming at it as an atheist, so I can sympathize with people who are suspect of religion in general, but I'm of the opinion that it's started to be one of those behaviors that people on this site reflexively engage in, without concern for other members, or whether it forwards the discussion, or whether it needs to happen at all, and it often seems so reductive, in that one piece of misbehavior by one religious person, if supported by their interpretation of scripture, justfied denigrating and dismissing all religion.
Anyway, since this conversation was tossing that one thread off the rails, it seems like it might be better moved here.
