We Should Have Only ONE Religion.
Religion has always been the reason of war, fighting or killing. If everyone had the same religion belief, the world would be more peaceful.

I really like the idea of one religion but when we make a religion we have a single god or we follow someone or something. The problem arises that what something it would be and who would choose it.
I want a religion where all religion are mingled retaining diversity and they all should have understanding between them, they should respect other people morals and if they feel they are great they should or could adopt them.
That would be one true religion.

I think so because of my religion, even though I understand the other side perspective. I understand that people may believe that they have the right to believe what they want because it is a free country... But, I am a Christian and in the Bible it say that Jesus is the only way, truth and the light. I don't think that we should legally make this happen and force people, because God doesn't force us to love him. Yet, i do believe that everyone should be a Christian.

 While still a bit imposing, it is nice to hear that you believe in giving people a choice

YES PLEASE! I'm going to tell you people something here, CHRISTIANITY is NOT a RELIGION! It is your PERSONAL choice & relationship with Christ. It is only about YOU and GOD. And just saying that without religion, the world will pretty much be lost? And yes I do believe in freedom of speech etc. AGAPE LOVE SEARCH IT UP

Religion is a divisive force.So many religions have divided the people into different parts because of which there have been so many wars.Religion is no longer preaching love and brotherhood but war and communalism.We should have only one religion which binds the human species together.

Yes, wouldn't having so many religions result in different interpretations of what God is like ? Which will also result in different beliefs & what to & what not to do. So when different religions come up with different opinions which seem clash or seem to be a threat to other the religion wouldn't it cause some religion issue ? And when this concerns over-religious people wouldn't they start to provoke war ?

In the one world government that the highest of Masons have been building for, there will be one religion. The utopia all generations have longed for in some way or another will be achieved. Except, it won't really be perfect. The false Messiah will rule. And the masses, which are stupid, like most of you are, will obey him.

Religion is somethind that tears human beings apart. The bottom line is there is only 1 God ut there and all humans are taught by every religion to folllow the same teachings. Be good and doo god. This would bring equality to the world

I agree then we could all stop fighting coz of it. Well actually we should have two. One for those who believe in nothing and one for those who believe in summa . Only prob would be that there would prob be a load of wars in the process of picking who it is that they all follow and what rules they are to follow. That's why i'm glad to say i play no part in religion coz i believe in none of it. To me it is just summat that people believe in for comfort and safety and there is too much pressure on kids of certain religious families to be religious.

If you read the Bible, it says somewhere that Jesus Christ is all bent out of shape because people will choose to set up different denominations of Christianity. So I think there was only supposed to be only one religion, but when that religion didn't fit the beliefs of a few, that few broke off and created another religion. There were religions that existed far before Christianity like Hinduism. It would be futile to lump everyone up under one religion, but I think that's the way it was supposed to be back in the day...for Christianity at least.

Not sure which way to vote on this one; the only way this could happen is if the "one true" God comes to Earth, stays awhile, and forces people to believe His way. It would probably take a few generations and lots of miracles...

On the one hand, I agree with Character's nazi argument; on the other, I am in favor of Divinity's concept of universal, "Unconditional LOVE" as the one true religion, because that encompasses the best of what all religions claim to strive for (IMHO).

Yes, we should have religion but true and perfect one. It's hard to discuss about the religion because people believes that their religion is right. But I think we should find which is right and which is wrong.

Yes we should... It would solve a lot of conflicts in the world. However there would be even more wars in deciding what that religion to have... That already happens in the far east but this time major powers would get involved and it would be a disaster.

It would solve many problems in today's world, but the holy books of many religions (the Bible, Tanakh, etc) and their beliefs and meanings are very firmly ingrained into their respective countries. It would be near-impossible to turn a devout Catholic to Islam, and just as difficult to turn an Islamic believer to the Catholic faith.
This statement does look like it should be on the 'against; side, but I am for it, just mentioning how difficult it would be,

It is needed primarily to stop arguing about the religions. This word religion is much smaller in listening to but has the power create as well destroy the whole mankind. But every one should know that human being has created the religion, not the religion which created the human being. We must stop making wars and killing people in the name of religious rebel. Over of all, we are firstly the rational human beings and the dwellers in the same earth. So why should we fight against each other? There should be a single religion exist and that is humanity. All people of this earth are nothing but the brothers of each other. This feeling of brotherhood should be raised and only one religion’s existence would make it possible. If there would not be any humanity, there would not be any religion as well.

No...diversity must be cherished!! It is fundamental right of people to follow their conscious, practice any faith or to not practice any..Religion and faith must be left to personal affair..Forcing any particular belief system will not unite us, rather, will jeopardize the situation..

Cultural and religious diversity is our strength and there are basic moral conducts common to all religions,all of them uphold righteousness..We all differ basically in rituals..otherwise key undertone of every religion is ultimate victory of Goodness..
How we interpret religions also give rise to differences...but the key is in Tolerance, mutual respect and faith in unity in diversity..All in all we must be united by HUMANITY rather than religion.

Even within the same religion, people still find excuses to kill one another. Protestants attack Catholics, Catholics attack Protestants, Sunnis attack Shias, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc....
Seriously, just Google the phrase "ISIS blows up mosque" and watch the stories come flooding in.
No, the REAL time we can have peace is when people, regardless of their religious beliefs, recognize that ALL people have a right to their beliefs so long as they're not hurting anyone. This is the only realistic, stable solution.

What kind of people are you? People can believe what they want to believe! What we need, is to accept each other's religion, even if you are against it. Also people need to stop shoving their religion down other peoples throats. It's horrible. I, myself am atheist, and I really get irritated when people tell me that I will go to hell if I don't believe in god or Jesus or heaven. Well, you know what? I don't believe in hell either! So, if we absolutely, as our last resort, like apocalyptically last resort, have to force people into a religion, make two religions. Theism and atheism.

I don't think, that we should have only one religion! Because every religion is interestin' and has their own individuality!If we will have only one religion, it will not so interesting and it will become boooring! Just think! Every religion- muslim, Christianity,Buddhism-they have their own beauty! But if we will have only one religion, i don't think, that it will be better..someone sais, that if we will one religion, the war of it will stop! I don;t think so, because people will find new theme to have a war! Or people will find new argumaent about one releigion, that will follow to war.

I am against having one religion. Because every person should have the rightsof freedom of expression. And having only one general religion prohibit people to make their choice. May be the supporters of this idea think that if there is one rekigion it will lead to peace. However I think that even in these case people will find some reason for conflict. Even in one religion there are disagreements. For example there are some Christians who believe in gay marriage and some who do not. There are some Christians who believe in divorce and some who do not. Even though these are the same religious base there are differences between them. If the world only had one religion I would think that would make it even less peaceful. As human beings we are never going to agree 100% of the time it is just not in our nature. The best we can do is believe in what we believe in and allow others to do the same.

I don't think a monotheistic world would necessarily be a better one. Sure, almost all terrorist attacks were religion based, but I can't recall a war in the last 10 years that was religion - based. Of course,I do not know about every single war that was fought in the last 10 years and the reason for them, so don't blow me up if i'm missing something. There have certainly been violent acts that were triggered by religious argument, but not full fledged wars(to my limited knowledge). Cultural differences are often caused by religion, yes, but that isn't always a bad thing. Many people think diversity is wrong, but that's because they don't know what diversity means. "Diversity" is the positive effect of different ethnic communities working together and co - existing. How can that be a bad thing? If everyone had the same religion, it would be kind of boring. It would be kind of like everyone having the same name. It just wouldn't work. And how would we choose this one unanimous religion? What would it be? Christianity? Buddhism? Or would that religion be no religion? An entirely atheistic world would be kind of bland, I think. Would you create a whole different religion, that everyone had to have? As I recall, it is not religious diversity that causes violence, it is religious oppression that triggers unrest. Which raises another question - how would you get over 7 billion people to agree? Because if you had a vote, everyone would vote for their own spiritualistic preference. And then where would we be? And what if someone found something wrong with this 'perfect' religion? There would be riots, and protests, and revolutions, and then we would worse off than we started. We would be living in a miserable, restless dystopic dictatorship. And, of course, where there's oppression, there's usually an omnipotent dictator with his own, omniscient opinion. So, it's an interesting concept, but us humans are just too broken and stubborn for it to wrk.

I really have to disagree with you here. Here is the problem. What you are proposing was the initial problem. The reason that many of the wars over religion happened was because a king or dictator or government was trying to enforce a certain religion on its people. It is very clear in the world that we live in today that everyone believes different things. I believe that the current system we have in the US is the best, because it gives everyone the opportunity to support, speak, and believe in whatever they want.

Against it for a very simple reason, if we have to go for only 1 religion, whose religion? The one with the most followers? The one with the more powerful military might? The one with the most money? The one with the nicest name? If we pick an answer based on that, then there will be even more problems than you're trying to solve.

It's not religion itself that causes violence. It's that people want there to be only one religion: Theirs. Now, it seems you want only one religion simply so there is no war over it, which is a commendable reason, but religion used to be a way to control people: The more people who followed a particular religion, the more control or power a king or ruling entity essentially held. It made things easier if the majority or entirety of a populace followed *your* religion. Without religion, I feel we might find something else to bicker about - simply because we tend to desire power.

In my opinion there should be no organised religions at all. If people want to cling to something to get them through the dark times, that should be between them and their personal God, but as soon as large groups start to organise their religion, wars start, subjugation and oppression abound, and lunatics start trying to force their beliefs down the throats of others.

Having one religion would solve one issue but it doesn;t mean less people will die. People will fight with or with out religion. So let people worship who they want. The real answer is to have NO religion. But that wouldn't technically be fix the issue either.

All across the world the only thing that most people have to believe in is their religion. For most people their religion is their life. If you restrict the world to just one religion, then all of the world will go to hell and back. Mutiny's will start popping up all across the world and more, deadlier wars will start breaking out than what we have in the world today.

It's sad that you think so narrow-mindedly. Religion itself is not the cause for war, violence and death. The problem is those who act according to their interpretation of the religion in question. Just because people say they're Christians, or Buddhists, or whatever, does NOT mean they're properly representing that religion. A good example is Westboro Baptist Church -- they claim to be hardcore Christians, but in NO WAY do they truly represent the Christian faith, or God.

Well. I think it would be boring. The world steps every day to becoming mainstreamed, but I think there should be a balance between culture and religion. Yes, different cultures can result in conflicts, but the spice up life! I would hate for only one belief to exist in the world. Exploration is a part of life, and is something that should be retained. Life without religion and the culture that surrounds religion would be more peaceful, but I would find it a great, great tragedy.

Sure, great idea, now let's look at all of the evidence and see how the One True Religion can be conclusively proven to be correct, that no one in his right mind could possibly think otherwise...oh wait, no single religion can be proven correct due to lack of objective, solid, measurable proof. I'm not saying there is no evidence at all, just insufficient, contradicting evidence, such as it is. Funny how people who want only one religion to exist have mostly already made up their minds that it should be theirs...no, thanks. I'd rather be uncertain of the truth and admit it than be the 'I know what I know, don't confuse me with the facts' type.

"Religion has always been the reason of war, fighting or killing." Apprently you've never heard of world war II? That war began because of racism not religion...hitler wanted to create what he considered to be the supreme race, so there goes that theory...or what about sociopaths and the like who kill because they can? Your arguement would've been better if you had thought out your reasoning a little better.
