    That's not remotely true, lots of people leave religion and change religions every day. More properly, lots of people are fanatically and irrationally attached to religion. That's not something to be proud of.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    That's a nice idea, however the problem is that very little is actually known about Jesus, and even if there was, very few people could follow.

    No it doesnt, humanities view and acceptance of religions has changed very much. State religion and state churches arent doing to well in many European countries... And in your example you gave the human greed example, why do you think religion somehow makes "human nature" come over the lust for greed? And religion is not a uniter, the nation state is. The nation state trumps religion 10-1.

    It appears to me that there are some who actually want the government to demand that Islam change it's ideology.
    I tried to give an example of that kind of thinking in the U.S. military.
