Religion is only one of many excuses that people adopt to justify killing each other. Helps if there's a bloodthirsty deity, but not necessary. See Buddhists killing Muslims in Burma.
"Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I hold in veneration — courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and above all, love of the truth."
— H. L. Mencken

For some people appeasing a god is the best way to fully release all your pent-up tribalistic hatred.  It may be a bit like looking at porn and masturbating (or so I've been told).

Well I never thought you had "fully release all your pent-up tribalistic hatred" so how would you know if it's like looking at porn and masturbating?

I've heard this said by Englishmen at pubs in London.
