    All religious activity should be banned.
    Any one showing religious activity should be removed.

    Not religious, but I don't even agree tbh. Everyone should be entitled to believe whatever they want but shouldn't force their beliefs on others.

    Banning something never works. In fact, it'll only serve to make the thing stronger.

    Idiotic suggestion.

    There would still be wars etc even without religion.Humans are the problem.Terrorism is more complex. Yes the recent terrorist attacks are linked to religion but it's also political. I can think of a few evil people that were atheist so I don't think banning religion would be ideal. You can't stop the way someone lives their life.

    cuz that is a great idea! everyone should be allowed to believe what they want. It is not religion that is evil but people themselves. Religion has not told people to go and kill thousands of innocents, people have done that themselves. So no we should not ban religion.

    That the only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others. His own good, either physical or moral, is not a sufficient warrant. He cannot rightfully be compelled to do or forbear because it will be better for him to do so, because it will make him happier, because, in the opinion of others, to do so would be wise, or even right... The only part of the conduct of anyone, for which he is amenable to society, is that which concerns others. In the part which merely concerns himself, his independence is, of right, absolute. Over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign. - John Stuart Mill

    Christmas is more about presents / family time than it is religion now. I'm sure shops would still exploit the opportunity.

    Yes but religion causes divides between people and divides cause fights. These issues between Muslims and non-Muslims go back thousands of years ago to the beginning of these religions.

    Why should peaceful religions in this day and age pay for the doings of Islamists. If any religion should be banned it's Islam not Sikhism Christianity which are by modern day values very peaceful

    Not really. Christianity/Judaism/Islam are all at fault for majority of religion based crime (i.e. terrorism). I'd suggest doing some research on the beginning of those religions and their progress together (or lack thereof)

    agreed. It would be better if it never existed

    People should not need a book to tell them how to be good people
