Organized religion is beneficial to society.

Religion is beneficial to society because it

1. Provides emotional comfort to people who seek answers to troubling and un-answerable questions.

2. Provides a community through which people can enjoy themselves, meet others, and exchange emotional and moral support.

3.Gives people a sense of direction and encourages people to do good deeds through community action.

I thank my opponent for the debate and wish them good luck.

I feel although religion can teach people morals there are other ways to achieve this. The negative impacts of organised religion have a far greater damage on society.

The fact that not everyone if born equal, man and women do not have equal rights or opportunities.
The promotion hatred towards ""inferior"" religions.

War thought history has been caused by religion.

The 9/11 attacks were the result of ""extreme religious beliefs"".

Since my opponent has refused to make his arguments I will keep this brief.
Thought history religion has been the cause of most conflict, people during the holocaust where singled out and murdered on a incomprehensibly large scale purely because there religion was considered inferior.

Events such as 9/11 or 11/9 (depending on what side of the pond you are on ). Can be attributed to extreme religious views again causing so much grief to the friends and families of the dead . People are branded by their religion since 9/11 western views and relationships towards Muslims have become considerably worse. Religion does not help society but divide it.
