    I don't think this song is criticizing religion. Actually, it's a critic to the ones who use religion as a excuse to justify some bad things like war. The lyrics are saying something like "God would not approve it" to everybody who keeps saying "for the greater good of God" and then do something that is totally unchristian: "He gave his life for us / He fell upon the cross It (...) wasn't meant for us / to feel the pain again". I know that Harris doesn't believe in God, but he is telling us that this God, if you do believe, is a God of love
