Although there are some disadvantages with having a society with many different religions, there are also many advantages. Yes, in a society with a variety of religions there will be conflict and also disagreement because of differing views, but in my opinion the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. With a numerous amount of religions there would be more of a choice for people, there would be many different viewpoints and mindsets for people to associate themselves with. 
Also, with a large amount of religions in society we have more knowledge. All religions have different theories on creation among others things and with a variety of opinions and viewpoints we as a society would have the opportunity to piece together the facts from each religion and have a good understanding of the world around us. So yes there are both disadvantages and advantages associated with having different religions in a society but diversity and uniqueness is what makes society what it is.
