A religious immoral person is someone who is either immoral despite their religious beliefs, or indeed because of them.

  • Examples include the Catholic church, which has many selfless and good leaders, but at the same time has been involved with aiding and abetting pedophile priests, protecting them from prosecution after they molest children.
  • Muslim extremists have used religion as an excuse to kill people and go on suicide missions- in the name of god.
  • Pro-life extremists have killed doctors who work at abortion clinics.


These are some examples of religion breeding immorality. When morality is assumed to come from an outside intangible force (god, Jesus, Allah etc..) , as many religions claim, it removes the individual from using their own judgment and opens the door for all kinds of immoral and despicable behaviors. If you believe that god is on your side, you aren't likely to second-guess your decisions and opinions.

To put it blunt and short, being religious doesn't make one a good person, any more than being non-religious makes one a bad person. It is up to the individual to do the right thing, and many times a belief in god can hinder that process.
