 Religion practices a set of rituals and ceremonious
rites of passage and intensification. It also regards
religious leaders in high esteem. These
characteristics help advance social harmony by
assimilating and stabilizing cultures and nations.
 Religion provides divine authority to ethical and
moral principles which also help promote unity
among people. Common participation in rituals
together with basic uniformity of beliefs help promote
social cohesiveness.
 This is one of the most significant functions of religion. It
provides a systematic model of the universe, which in effect
determines organized human behavior.
 By providing moral values, one is able to distinguish right from
wrong, good from evil. It also provides a system of reward and
punishment that administers and standardizes people’s
behavior in society.
 Some people believe that following rules of their religion is
more important than government rules since most people give
more importance to the reward and punishment in the afterlife.
 Since religion is a source of moral values, it provides
social change. It can be very effective in lobbying
and campaigning for certain social issues using its
own moral teachings as the basis for argument.
 Religion has the potential to institute social change,
especially in the issues concerning poverty,
reproductive health, gender equality and religious
discrimination.
 Religion was developed from man’s need to have a
sense of origin and destination; to discover where they
came from and where they are bound to go when they
die. Religion provides answers for phenomena and
questions that science or reason cannot explain.
 Myths about creation abound but more importantly,
religion has provided assurances as to where spirits will
go when people die, reducing people’s fear of death as
something undesirable.
 Some religions have even made death a better
alternative to living in uncertainty.
 People were inspired by the stories of different
prophets from their own religious affiliations like that
of Moses, Buddha and Muhammad.
 These people showed how ordinary people like them
were given important missions in life, and how they
struggled to carry out their respective missions.
 Their narratives (known to us because of religion)
may give people a sense of meaning in life; that they
are not placed in this world without a purpose, that
each has a mission to fulfill and it is up to them to
fathom what their missions in life are.
 For some, religion provides people with personal identity
as part of a group with similar worldviews, beliefs, values,
practices, and lifestyles.
 Belonging to a particular religion – whose members share
the same beliefs, practices the same rituals and worship
the same god – gives individuals a sense of being in the
right place with the right people.
 It also provides them a sense of security because other
people who belong to the same group tend to support and
help each other in times of crisis. People can also rejoice
with them in times of success.
 Some religions often favor men and as a result,
perpetuate the notions of class or gender
discrimination or oppression.
 Examples:
 Confucianism emphasizes the relation between the ruler and
the subject, with the ruler exercising authority over the
people.
 The traditional caste system in India would also reflect how
religion shows political and social structures since it
propagated the idea that people had to be subdivided into
certain social classes with particular social roles and that the
attainment of moksha (union of the universal and individual
soul) would depend on how they performed their duties
based on their designated class.
 Religion can be a source of discrimination or the
prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or
things.
 Some people do not tolerate religious ideologies different
from the one they follow. Religious fanaticism can lead to
feelings of hatred, which could lead to racism and
eventually violence.
 Throughout history, religion has been used by colonizers
to justify their forcible occupation of territories.
 There are also some religions which discriminate other
religions by saying that theirs is the “right religion” and
that only their followers will be saved in the afterlife.
Wars have been fought in the name of
religion.
Numerous lives were sacrificed and lost and
this phenomenon continues up to the present
time.
 For example:
 In Palestine, Jews are in conflict with the Muslims;
 In Kashmir, Muslims are against Hindus;
 In Sudan, Muslims vs Christians and animists
 Karl Marx said “Religion is the opium of the masses.”
he believes that religion maintains social inequality
by propagating a worldview that justifies oppression.
 People will not complain of being poor or being in the
lower ranks because “the kingdom of Heaven is
waiting for them”
 Catholic church claimed that the earth was flat and that it is the
center of the solar system and so when Copernicus stated his
theory that the sun is the center of the solar system, he was
banned from the church and his book was banned for more
than 200 years.
 Some religions have rituals that impede scientific success.
Some are even unsanitary which may cause more danger to
people.
 For example:
 During the cholera outbreak in the Philippines, the catholic practice
of having the dead body of cholera victims be brought to church for
a Mass was seen as one reason why the cholera epidemic
continued to spread rapidly.
 Many question the sustainability of religious
doctrines to the needs od the present and future
generations. Ancient religious beliefs and practices
which have proven to be inhuman should be
replaced with sensible ones.
 For example:
 Trepanning or boring of holes in the skull, a surgical
procedure performed on epileptics and the mentally ill, with
the belie that through the hole, the evil spirit will leave the
person
1. Self-Immolation of Buddhist Monk in Vietnam
2. Widow burning among Hindus in India
3. The Inquisition
4. The Godhra train incident in India in 2002

  • 4.  Religion practices a set of rituals and ceremonious rites of passage and intensification. It also regards religious leaders in high esteem. These characteristics help advance social harmony by assimilating and stabilizing cultures and nations.  Religion provides divine authority to ethical and moral principles which also help promote unity among people. Common participation in rituals together with basic uniformity of beliefs help promote social cohesiveness.
  • 5.  This is one of the most significant functions of religion. It provides a systematic model of the universe, which in effect determines organized human behavior.  By providing moral values, one is able to distinguish right from wrong, good from evil. It also provides a system of reward and punishment that administers and standardizes people’s behavior in society.  Some people believe that following rules of their religion is more important than government rules since most people give more importance to the reward and punishment in the afterlife.
  • 6.  Since religion is a source of moral values, it provides social change. It can be very effective in lobbying and campaigning for certain social issues using its own moral teachings as the basis for argument.  Religion has the potential to institute social change, especially in the issues concerning poverty, reproductive health, gender equality and religious discrimination.
  • 7.  Religion was developed from man’s need to have a sense of origin and destination; to discover where they came from and where they are bound to go when they die. Religion provides answers for phenomena and questions that science or reason cannot explain.  Myths about creation abound but more importantly, religion has provided assurances as to where spirits will go when people die, reducing people’s fear of death as something undesirable.  Some religions have even made death a better alternative to living in uncertainty.
  • 8.  People were inspired by the stories of different prophets from their own religious affiliations like that of Moses, Buddha and Muhammad.  These people showed how ordinary people like them were given important missions in life, and how they struggled to carry out their respective missions.  Their narratives (known to us because of religion) may give people a sense of meaning in life; that they are not placed in this world without a purpose, that each has a mission to fulfill and it is up to them to fathom what their missions in life are.
  • 9.  For some, religion provides people with personal identity as part of a group with similar worldviews, beliefs, values, practices, and lifestyles.  Belonging to a particular religion – whose members share the same beliefs, practices the same rituals and worship the same god – gives individuals a sense of being in the right place with the right people.  It also provides them a sense of security because other people who belong to the same group tend to support and help each other in times of crisis. People can also rejoice with them in times of success.
  • 10.
  • 11.  Some religions often favor men and as a result, perpetuate the notions of class or gender discrimination or oppression.  Examples:  Confucianism emphasizes the relation between the ruler and the subject, with the ruler exercising authority over the people.  The traditional caste system in India would also reflect how religion shows political and social structures since it propagated the idea that people had to be subdivided into certain social classes with particular social roles and that the attainment of moksha (union of the universal and individual soul) would depend on how they performed their duties based on their designated class.
  • 12.  Religion can be a source of discrimination or the prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things.  Some people do not tolerate religious ideologies different from the one they follow. Religious fanaticism can lead to feelings of hatred, which could lead to racism and eventually violence.  Throughout history, religion has been used by colonizers to justify their forcible occupation of territories.  There are also some religions which discriminate other religions by saying that theirs is the “right religion” and that only their followers will be saved in the afterlife.
  • 13. Wars have been fought in the name of religion. Numerous lives were sacrificed and lost and this phenomenon continues up to the present time.  For example:  In Palestine, Jews are in conflict with the Muslims;  In Kashmir, Muslims are against Hindus;  In Sudan, Muslims vs Christians and animists
  • 14.  Karl Marx said “Religion is the opium of the masses.” he believes that religion maintains social inequality by propagating a worldview that justifies oppression.  People will not complain of being poor or being in the lower ranks because “the kingdom of Heaven is waiting for them”
  • 15.  Catholic church claimed that the earth was flat and that it is the center of the solar system and so when Copernicus stated his theory that the sun is the center of the solar system, he was banned from the church and his book was banned for more than 200 years.  Some religions have rituals that impede scientific success. Some are even unsanitary which may cause more danger to people.  For example:  During the cholera outbreak in the Philippines, the catholic practice of having the dead body of cholera victims be brought to church for a Mass was seen as one reason why the cholera epidemic continued to spread rapidly.
  • 16.  Many question the sustainability of religious doctrines to the needs od the present and future generations. Ancient religious beliefs and practices which have proven to be inhuman should be replaced with sensible ones.  For example:  Trepanning or boring of holes in the skull, a surgical procedure performed on epileptics and the mentally ill, with the belie that through the hole, the evil spirit will leave the person
