It's very correct we aren't a political authority, & the very reason for that is because we live in our own world. William James said, the most profound discovery of modern time is that man can change his behavior by changing his thinking. Which makes me think, how could the behavior of the average person change by changing his religious belief?
No doubt, but how should it be stopped? How SHOULD it BE stopped? If you say that too many times, you start to sound like Joseph Stalin, who is a person most people dislike.Regarding the importance of the issue. The question is how much religion plays into the major issues of the world. Of course it is not a seriously problem in and of itself that someone would believe something, it's what it makes them do. if religion compels people to uphold violent and oppressive laws, disregard important scientific facts, and generally remain idle in the face of global crises, then it should be stopped.
