Portmanteau

I was trying to find a word for a person who is war like, because of their religion. There was of course jihadist, but that is fairly specific to Islam, and I wanted something more general. I present for your enjoyment: relligerent.

I had to invent it myself, but I think the meaning is self evident. Try to use it regularly to get it adopted into our ever growing lexicon.
