These question all focus on whether Christianity is a bad influence on society or a good one.

If bad, whether the criticisms made by secularists make Christianity irredeemable or whether it could learn from them and adapt such that the criticisms no longer apply, which is what liberal christians try to do.

Or if it is irredeemable, then perhaps it should not be a contributor to society's culture

Some examples of debated things are:

Whether Christianity causes conflict (religious wars in Ireland, arguably even the wars in the middle east to an extent)
Whether Christianity causes prejudice (homosexuals, women, jews)
Whether Christianity is bad for a multi-religious culture because of its exclucivist claims
Whether Christianity's attitude towards sexual ethics is repressive (Freud)
Whether Christianity is bad for our culture's rationality and understanding of science (Dawkins)
Whether we need religion in order to have a stable functioning basis for morality.

My notes go into detail on these things, you can find them here:
