Read the whole section Jesus is describing what happens to those within who he does not exist. They wither and like a dead branch are gathered my men and burned. So again, where does Jesus tell his disciples to kill and slaughter the nonbelievers? Or anyone for that matter? Maybe if you read about christ you might find he was not the jerk that people who were forced by over protective parents to study in Catholic School remember because the priest was a child molestor.
In the end I am sorry we disagree. I'm sorry you hate religion. For whatever we or those saying they represented religion did "I" apologize. However, like rounding up ever lucid dreamer and calling them a nut case, you would be wrong and have over simplified everything. You argue your point well and I fear if I continue to debate you I will become heated and impolite. So I will have to bow out and hope someday you find the side of religion that helps people become more than they are.
