Good morning to everyone in this room. I would like to thank the principal, the teachers, and my dear friends for allowing me to speak to you today about religion. Religion is a structured approach to spirituality that includes stories, symbols, doctrines, rituals, and practices that give significance to connections among people as well as to all aspects of daily life.
Every community has religious institutions that influence how we view daily life and how we interact with one another. Sociologists research religion to learn why people behave differently in various regions of the world. Religion is a societal reality that is woven into the foundation of social life.
It can be used to help injustice and the uneven distribution of resources or to fight off and combat injustice. Sociologists are interested in learning about the various religious experiences that the wealthy and the poor have because all religions preach love and interfaith brotherhood.
The study of the sociology of religion aims to comprehend how religion interacts with society, both positively and negatively, and how it affects other social institutions like education, government, and the economy.
According to research, the wealthy take advantage of the poor during times of crisis, while the poor turn to religion again as a source of solace. Sociologists also examine how religion has diverse meanings for various social classes and levels, which is distinct from what theologians and philosophers of religion are interested in. Thank you.
