Of course, so many issues derive from religion.
No! What would we do without it?
At nearly every turn, small-minded religious beliefs have hindered progress and caused oppression and violence.
I don't feel comfortable with the wording of voting no, but I felt that my opinion was no. The reason is because religion for many provides hope. The majority of religious individuals are not extremists - the majority are trying their best to maintain a sense of spiritual security. I don't think there's anything wrong with that. It gives many a sense of peace and a sense of belonging. So, from this perspective, a world without religion might actually be worse off, somewhat.
Cause God all the way, U.S.A. Passover weekend this weekend.
Reign of Terror, the Cultural Revolution and the Khmer Rouge. Enough said.
Religion keeps the world good, as long as it's the right religion(Christianity).
It's very easy to point out genocide, and for some reason, people only seem to point out religious genocide when they forget genocides without religion like with Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot. (Hitler is debatable because he was born a Christian, but he rejected it early on.)
As much as I hate everything religion stands for, I have no choice but to vote no. Many poor people in this country would have no hope without religion. Most would probably kill themselves if they didn't think they had a cosmic payoff post-mortem. However, religion deserves absolutely no place in schools, the middle class, the upper class, politics, science, or anywhere else in upper society.
Having religions is what keeps everyone in order. If we didn't have religion, people wouldn't understand life and everyone would be doing whatever they want
because religion makes us different
