Is organized religion bad?
People who say yes or no, please backup your claim, and try not to rely on anecdotes only, for example by pointing to studies showing that organized religion
1) increases the pain and suffering of individuals and communities
2) increases the well-being of individuals and communities
Here’s an example for #1
A Canadian study about “Internalized homophobia: A factor in depression, anxiety, and suicide in the gay and lesbian population”
Here’s an example for #2
An American study with the “Psychological Inquiry: How does religion benefit health and well-being?”
