A world with one religion
A world with several religions
A world with no religion
You kill someone. So what?
Someone kills you. So what?
Personally, I dont care what religion, if any, anyone cares to practice.

A world with many religions.
Religion, in all of its myriad forms, formal and informal, is an intrinsic part of the human psyche. I have not met, and do not think I will ever meet, a man for whom the construction "I believe" is anathema. Whenever a man declares his beliefs, he declares his religion.
Man is a social animal, and man is a religious animal. Thus man's religions will inform man's societies, and man's societies will influence man's religions. Government, being the adjunct of society, is invariably caught up in this dynamic.
Religion will influence government; that is the order things. What is dangerous is when government elevates one religion, one canon of belief, above all others, or when those of one religious persuasion use the power of government to attack and oppress those of differing religious persuasions.
