Vilnits 1 Rada Vilnits Ms. Piscitello English 120 Section 122 19 October 2007 Religion: Positive or Negative?

Religion definitely plays a positive role in my life because it makes me a better person. Religion should never be regarded to be more than it is: a personal belief. A belief shouldn’t be the initiator of any belligerence or hostility toward other groups, especially since most religions stand against violence. No believer should have to prove that his/her belief is the best or the truest and state that all the others are insignificant.
