  • Absolutely. The Bible calls false religion a Great Harlot. This is because it is meant to be his bride, and his representative and support, but they would rather go on gaining favour from the ruling parties of the world. As it states, they 'commit fornication with the kings of the earth'. Yes, religion certainly can be immoral.
  • Sinners can make it that way.
  • I guess it depends on the source of morality. If the source of morality is religion itself then no it can't be. If the source of morality is God, and we take religion to be created by man, then yes it could be. So after my 'thinking aloud'. I'm stumped to come up with a definitive answer. Intersted to see other answers...
  • I think it can be immoral if it is not of God, but of man's doing/ways.
  • It can succumb to Satan, same as anything else.
  • The mass killing of Humanity is immoral (whoever) does it. History tells us the rest !
  • Frankly. . .and honestly. . .I think SOME in the world are downright. . . .B-I-Z-A-R-R-E !
  • Since religion is a human invention, it can be anything humans can be, including immoral and even downright evil!
  • All religions are immoral. The fact that they're based on a lie and delusions for the sole purpose of controlling the masses make them so
  • No. Only people can be immoral.
  • Most definitely, morals come from society at large. Religions that promote values that are opposite of the values of society (slavery, subjecation of women, and other things) is immoral.
  • It's kind of a circular question, but an interesting one. Since religions generally consist of a framework of what morality and ethics should be, no religion is going to be immoral within its own frame of reference. But for anyone looking at that religion from the outside, either from the perspective of their own religious beliefs or their own ethical code, a religion's framework of belief could be seen as immoral.
  • Heard of. Don't want to mention though. Its a group of weird christians who believe that nakedness is allowed by God like adam and eve. A case where people bring shame on religion. But religion exactly can't be immoral.
  • Of course a religion can be immoral just like an idea can be immoral.
  • i would think that the actions of the people is what would be immoral or not.
  • Like Belushi in "Animal House" = {{belch!}} WHY NOT? (shouting) - ;-)
  • The beliefs can be immoral. But people make their own choices and decisions.
  • Oh yeah, just learn about paganism.
  • I dont know much about any religions except christianity, and thats as immoral as the days are long. One read of the "holy" bible and you find mass works of God telling people to kill in his name, take over villages, pillage and plunder the spoils that the Lord apparently delivered them, rape and enslave unwilling women, use the children as slaves, commit adultery, more slavery, and lots of baby killing, even unborn child killing (abortion). I can site passages if anyone doesnt believe me but if you've read it yourself don't preach to me christianity is as twisted as it gets. I won't even get to what some churches have done in the past in the name of God, the lives it has taken do not add up to the toll of its leader Jesus' worth, or to as many as they have saved (not counting people who claimed their lives have been saved from debauchery by it, you were probably better off before.)
  • Yes a religion can be immoral. Morality comes from the laws of God so the true question is which religion follows the ONE TRUE GOD? Here's an answer from gotquestions.org, great answer! I hope it helps you find morality you're searching for. Here's a Question: "Why are there so many religions? Do all religions lead to God?" Answer: The existence of so many religions and the claim that all religions lead to God without question confuses many who are earnestly seeking the truth about God, with the end result sometimes being that some despair of ever reaching the absolute truth on the subject. Or they end up embracing the universalist claim that all religions lead to God. Of course, skeptics also point to the existence of so many religions as proof that either you cannot know God or that God simply does not exist. Romans 1:19-21 contains the biblical explanation for why there are so many religions. The truth of God is seen and known by every human being because God has made it so. Instead of accepting the truth about God and submitting to it, most human beings reject it and seek their own way to understand God. But this leads not to enlightenment regarding God, but to futility of thinking. Here is where we find the basis of the “many religions.” Many people do not want to believe in a God who demands righteousness and morality, so they invent a God who makes no such requirements. Many people do not want to believe in a God who declares it impossible for people to earn their own way to heaven. So they invent a God who accepts people into heaven if they have completed certain steps, followed certain rules, and/or obeyed certain laws, at least to the best of their ability. Many people do not want a relationship with a God who is sovereign and omnipotent. So they imagine God as being more of a mystical force than a personal and sovereign ruler. The existence of so many religions is not an argument against God's existence or an argument that truth about God is not clear. Rather, the existence of so many religions is demonstration of humanity's rejection of the one true God. Mankind has replaced Him with gods that are more to their liking. This is a dangerous enterprise. The desire to recreate God in our own image comes from the sin nature within us—a nature that will eventually “reap destruction” (Galatians 6:7-8). Do all religions lead to God? Actually they do. All but one leads to His judgment. Only one—Christianity—leads to His forgiveness and eternal life. No matter what religion one embraces, everyone will meet God after death (Hebrews 9:27). All religions lead to God, but only one religion will result in God's acceptance, because only through His salvation through faith in Jesus Christ can anyone approach Him with confidence. The decision to embrace the truth about God is important for a simple reason: eternity is an awfully long time to be wrong. This is why right thinking about God is so critical.
  • Yes. In fact according to most religions, every other religion is immoral. And according to most atheists all religions are immoral.
  • Morality is a relative concept. It is religiously moral for cannibals to eat humans - they have religions of their own.
