Are there any advantages or disadvantages to having different religions in society?

 

Religions can have a positive influence on society because they bring diversity, they open discussions within each groups but also with the others. Every religion trying to better understand the other. Trying to live in harmony even though their different beliefs can make peace seem impossible. But religion, for a lot of believers, is what makes them wake up in the morning and decide to go to work, go to school and enjoy life. Every religion has different rhythm and influence on the day-to-day life and that can create conflicts within the society.

I definitely agree with the advantage that you gave. For example, it’s true that religion helps people in society learn how to be acceptant of other peoples’ views on life.

I totally agree with the fact that religion can be the reason for living for a lot of believers. And yes, this can be a advantage for our society. But, if someone believes too much into his religion, this could become dangerous.

Religion does have a positive influence on certain societies, however it has also caused major conflicts and war. I also agree to the fact that it brings diversity and brings upon discussion in order to understand each others religion. Open discussion can cause many conflicts and disagreements that we still face in the world today.

I totally agree with you. Religion helps so many people in life with any kind of issues, believers trust their own religion and as you said it is an advantage to have diversity. This enables us to learn more about different worldviews and cultures.

I strongly agree with the fact that religion is something positive in a society, and that religion may bring people of different backgrounds to unite. I also agree with you that religion is a good thing in society, though it should not be overly present.
