While some might disagree, the general consensus of those who participated in the January 13th Discussion titled, “Do We Need Religion To Create A Moral Society?” seemed to be that, on an individual basis, one can certainly be very moral without reliance on a religious viewpoint. But the consensus was far less clear on the role religion “should” play in the establishment and “enforcement” of morality. While this issue was briefly discussed, time ran out before it could be adequately addressed. I’ve therefore decided to have a follow up discussion on this specific question. What role, if any, should organized religion play in deciding standards of moral behavior, and, once decided upon, what role should organized religion play in assuring compliance with those standards?
