Religion and Society

Each person should have his own rules about the place of religion in his live. Each individual is different and this diversity is very important. Consequently, it is impossible that everybody believes in the same thing. It is normal to say that different societies have different believes. However, the place of religion in one particular society cannot be the same for everybody because some people may be less practicing than others and some may believe in no religion at all. Rules about religion cannot be put into law if they have not the same meaning for everyone in the community. Also, different people with different religions and believes can live together in a society. The city of Montreal is a very good example because people coming from around the world and with different nationalities, cultures and religions are living among each other. Even if they are sometime separated in different districts, we can confirm that Montreal is a multiethnic society. Having these different religions is an advantage because it enriches the overall community. It also forces us to learn about believes and cultures of the world that we would not know otherwise. Furthermore, it encourages people to be open minded to others way of seeing the world.
