Re: Genocide is more than just killing.
If political powers use religion as a tool and members of that religion allow that use, then the religion is at least complicit, if not responsible.

Re: Genocide is more than just killing.
Certainly, whether the people have the liberty to act or not should be a factor in determining the level of responsibility they have. In the U.S., people have always had the freedom to at least speak up and condemn governmental acts they disapprove of. The vast majority of Christians were either supportive of or at least not vocally opposed to governmental reliance on Christianity as a justification for the subjugation and killing of native americans.
