religion

I think that religion should not be omnipresent in society and control everything. Since a few years, some societies have a tendency to promote their religion by denying certain rights of other religions. I believe that today everyone should be able to practice his or her religion if it does not prevent others from practicing theirs. Today we should try to take what’s good in every religion and live all together.

A question of balance

In my view, religion should be something personal. If one of the main goals of religion is the respect, then it means that it’s the respect of the person you are but also of the others around you. You must respect them and not impose your beliefs to others. The society today shouts that we are more tolerant, that we have made progress and that we are more open to other religions…it's true, the problem is that this “open mind” creates conflicts in the society. When everybody has its own beliefs, everyone thinks they own the truth.

Post 1 - Role of Religion in Society

 

Religion and its Role in Quebec

I think we are very lucky here in Canada and especially in Montreal and its surroundings to be exposed to such a great variety of religions, because not only does it make us more knowledgeable about other people's beliefs but it makes us understand their beliefs as well. If someone has never been exposed to a particular belief, he/she may never understand it fully. Luckily, it is not the case in Quebec. I also think it makes society much more beautiful and varied.

What should the place of religion in society be?

In my opinion, religion should be a personal choice and not imposed by society. Every person has the right to practice his or her own religion as long as practicing it doesn’t undermine the society’s laws. Moreover, religion shouldn’t influence the government’s passing of bills because democracy cannot be based on bias. For example, the old laws on illegal abortions. I believe there are some advantages of having different religions in society.

Advantages & Disadvantages of Having Multiple Religions in a Society

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. 

Religion in Society

Having different religions in society has its advantages because it allows people to believe in whatever they want to. Not everyone agrees on the same things and giving people the choice to have faith in what or who they want to is good. It allows individuals to view certain things about life and death differently. However, some might say that it has more disadvantages than the opposite. Different religious opinions can and has led to wars. That being said, I feel as if having the freedom to believe in what you want is greater than being forced to a specific religion.

Religion in society

We all know that religion is a controversy subject in society because people have many views, ways, and ideas about it and they perceive it all in a different manner. First of all, I think that it is a topic like any other and everyone should have the right to their own opinion. I do not see why people make such a big deal about religion while many other theme can be such as controversy. In a society it is always good to have many opinion about diverse subjects, so it should be the case with religion.
