im not sure if this is right but this is what i think it means. If religion is a conservative force it inhibits social change if its a radical force i assume it means religion is a driving force for social change. An example of religion being a radical force could be the the black rights movement where the black priests and clergy were able to appeal to the shared values of the people in power. An example of a conservative force could be the fact that many religions do not allow women to take roles of power and leadership for example women cannot become priests.
