Its asking me to do two separate things one: List first effect thesis and provide examples.

THe second one is :List second effect thesis with examples.

THe effects I have to think of positive as well as negative how should I word it.

So you have to choose one positive and one negative?


list at least two effects that organized religion has had on society and vie exmaples form past and/or present world events that illustrate your examples. Think of positive as well as negative effects organized religion has had on social groups in the past as well as the more recently. Place dates, places names, people and other facts to develop your examples form the historical past as well as more recent events in the news.

ooh okay. So basically your teacher wants you to write about two major effects of relgion, stating the positive and negative effects of each one.

I'd probably write about the effects on government and culture. And then go into a few wars, briefly stating the positive and negative outcomes of each. Then to bring in a more modern view point, you should state something about the changes in todays government and how they differ from the past. But make sure to include some of todays religious problems, as well.

For culture, I'd write about the renaissance and the different literature/music/art that all came from religion. Also, you could write something about science .. because the Catholic church didn't accept the heliocentric model of the solar system until 1992 because of a religious debate. Which also brings in a more modern view point.

But you could go into a lot of different directions with this.

Also, if you go to your library, try to find the book, "Western Civilization" by Jackson J. Spielvogel. It has tons of information on relgion and it's effects.

Organized religion has had a wide range of effects on society throughout history. Here are a few possible effects to consider:

1. Positive effect: Moral and ethical framework - Religion often provides a moral and ethical framework that guides individuals and communities in their behavior. It can promote values such as compassion, forgiveness, and charity, which can positively impact social cohesion. For example, religious institutions often play a key role in advocating for human rights and social justice causes.

- Example: Various religious organizations have been at the forefront of social movements such as the Civil Rights Movement in the United States, led by religious figures like Martin Luther King Jr. This movement aimed to achieve racial equality and justice, shaping the course of society.

2. Negative effect: Conflicts and divisions - Religion has also been a source of conflicts and divisions in society. Throughout history, religious differences have fueled violence, wars, and societal divisions. For example, the Crusades and religious wars during the Reformation period led to significant bloodshed and animosity between religious groups.

- Example: The ongoing conflicts in the Middle East, such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, have deep-rooted religious dimensions that contribute to the tensions and challenges in resolving these issues.

It's important to note that these examples are just a starting point, and there are numerous other effects that organized religion can have on societies. To gather more specific examples, you can research historical events, specific countries or regions, religious movements, and current news to provide a comprehensive analysis of the effects of organized religion.
