My opinion, from casual observation of trends...

Mass murder is orchestrated by extreme control freaks.
Extreme control freaks who are in power tend not to want people to believe there is a higher power than them, or their form of government (unless they can use that belief to their advantage).
That's about as far as the association goes.
The further back you go in the past the more likely any genocide is to have religious ties, because religion was more associated with power further back in history.
This at least is a good trend. Religious control and modern morality seem inversely proportional. More religion in today's world seems to be associated with more unjust societies, more war, more suffering overall.
