"Encouraged by his wife Theodora, Christian Emperor Justinian ordered soldiers to massacre more than 30,000 non-conformist citizens in Constantinople to impose his version Christian orthodoxy. Apparently, "Justinian did not see it as murder if the victims did not share his own beliefs." The Old Testament of the Christian Bible has many examples of violent punishment by God.
