It is easy for destructive influences in our society to pick up on negatives in religion.
Atheists and Satanists stress the negative aspects of religion: violence, hypocrisy, judgementalism, legalism, hate.....
But they never refer to the positive aspects of religion: justice, peace, charity, compassion, love....
It is easy to blame religion for jihads, terrorism, crusades, inquisitions, child sex abuse, cover ups etc..
But religions also do a lot of good in our world.
So when you are tempted to blame the Church or Islam be aware that good also derives from religion.
