We'll leave out Catholic complicity and assistance in the fascist
regimes of Franco and Mussolini. We can omit the Christian war against
the native peoples of the Americas as well, because you're either
going to cast that as 'not that bad', an ethnic conflict, or
inevitable. This is where Western Europeans rack up the majority of
their atrocities. If you like, we can leave out the religious aspect
of colonialism altogether--though that was indisputably more murderous
than any other fundamentalist movement of the past two centuries.
Let's start with the Catholic/Protestant split in Ireland. Add to that
the Catholic Croat/Orthodox Serbs/Muslim Armenian internecine warfare
in the Balkans. Tack on the Christian Phalange in Lebanon, responsible
for the Sabra and Shatila massacres, among others. Hong Xiuquan and
the Taipeng rebellion. The Lord's Resistance Army of Sudan. God's Army
in Thailand and Burma.
Western Europe, the area with which you would be most familiar, lacks
recent atrocities largely because previous atrocities were largely
successful at exterminating other religious groups.

None. Wilson is in the business of excusing past atrocities, as he
lacks the power to create fresh ones.

Starving Wilson's church to death using all powers short of state coercion.
Hope that helps.
