Which Religion does the most Damage?
Which is the most dangerous Religion in the 21st Century. The Crusades and inquisitions do not count unless they are taking place now.

Uhh...ISIS/ISIL? Beheadings, promises to destroy Israel first, and the West second, teaching their children Jews are made through sex between pigs and dogs and are a lower life form than either. Yeah. That should do it.

How about all the talk about men getting their Virgins in heaven for killing innocent people, but no talk about what women get, and forcing women to dress like nuns at the risk of being sexually assaulted and executed for not abiding by the dress code, and not being able to drive or get jobs or even be treated as human beings?

That's an entire gender and in fact more than half of the people in our world belong to it.

Right wing Christianity is the biggest threat with its' climate denialism.

Islamic terrorism a close second.

RE: Which Religion does the most Damage?
All of them do damage. You cannot think about a moment in time. Our species evolution leads us to form groups. We can form those groups around very bad logic, such as the Egyptians did in falsely believing in their polytheistic gods for 3,000 years. That grouping does provide opportunity to gain resources and make offspring and that is ultimately leads us to form groups. The downside to that is that is based on flawed perceptions and sets up in group and out groups, which causes us to see outsiders as less than the same species.

Now that is not to say you can rid the world of it, but it must be watched and treated as potentially dangerous no matter how small it may seem at the time. All it takes with religion is just enough. The only thing that keeps religion on a leash is protection of dissent and common law. Politics such as worship of the state can be as much a religion as religions themselves.

RE: Which Religion does the most Damage?
What is calculating this damage or what is the largest danger? Islam is damaging people more frequently through physical ways and propping up political strive that leads to murder.

Christianity has still in the 21st century been a motive for encouraging other war actions and overall ignorance of global issues and resource mining that may have more significant long term damage to the Earth for Humanities sake.

Teaching children to believe that illusion is real, is damage attributable to the entire concept of religion.

There is no "which" or "most" about it; damage does not have a degree of measurement one finds acceptable. Drinking Beverage

RE: Which Religion does the most Damage?
It's a toss up between rightwing christianity and radical Islam. The rightwingers can make the laws but the Islamists want to blow us up.
