"Organized religions, more than any other human institution, can influence public behavior and moral codes -- either for good or bad." Agree or Not?
An "organized religion" is a religion that often has particular beliefs, membership, a holy place for prayer, sermons, festivities, etc. Some examples of organized religions are Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Scientology, Hinduism, Muslim, Jehovah's Witness, etc.
Do you agree that organized religions - more than any other human institution - can influence public behavior and moral codes -- either for the good or bad?
If you agree that statement is true - do you believe that the influence is primarily for the good or for the bad?
