The Motion that religion harms society is about religions impact on society. Not about its basis or moral teachings. this is a clausal claim. we can all agree that religion does foster social harmony and inclusion. but that is not the point of the motion. if a religion teaches to love their enemies but ends up causing war and death, than we can agree that religion may try to have a more positive aspect ends up bringing in more of a negative aspect. feel free to argue your motion

As Pro Has The Burden Of Truth All I Have To Do Is Disprove Pro's Arguments.
I Challenge Pro To Find One Conflict In History Purely Motivated By Anything.
They Don't Exist, Religion Could Have Been A Major Motivator But It Certainly Wasn't The Only One.
Another Point Pro Makes Is That Religions Only Cause Hate And Death.
Again I Challenge Pro To Give Me An Example Of This.
That Does Not Include Attacks By Extremists Such As The 9/11 Attacks Because
Violent Extremists Are An Overwhelming Minority In All Major Religions.
I Again Challenge Pro With A Statement Of My Own, Religions Provide A Sense Of Togetherness Within Communities,
Answer Life's Big Questions And Teach Solid Morales (Usually).
This Concludes My Opening Argument, I Look Forward To Pro's Response.
