Religion has always been a controversial topic and will be for the rest of eternity. No one will ever agree on religious policies or beliefs, but I believe that religion is actually harming American as a whole than helping. Numerous studies have been shown that support the fall of Christianity in America and I believe that is because of the harm is has created. One important aspect to me is Gay Rights and that is a rising issue being delt with today in our society. Government has been stirred up by religious beliefs, for example out current President Obama and his pastor Reverent Wright. School education is in a twist because of the decision to teach the theory of evolution or God. Overall, Religion has caused many controversies and to be honest I do not ever see an end to it.
