Who is a religious immoral person?
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.
Some are and some aren't. Being religious or not is not what makes people immoral. It is their own actions. Lots of people who do not follow any religion are very moral, and there are lots of people who do follow a religion but behave immorally. Read More

Is a person considered an atheist or immoral if they are not religious but respect other people's faith?
There are a number of separate issues in the question. 1) Atheism and Immorality: These are two completely different things. An atheist is someone who simply rejects the idea of a supernatural. Immorality is the rejection of proper and ethical conduct. A person can be atheist and moral, atheist and immoral, theist and moral, or theist and immoral. 2) Not Religious: This term has two distinct meanings. Some people use it to mean someone who… Read More

Yes, legal behavior can be immoral, but it is generally quite subjective (i.e. it depends on the person's beliefs who is judging the morality of a behavior). Some people think that drinking alcohol, smoking tobacco, and going to strip clubs are all immoral behavior. However, some do not believe these are immoral behaviors. The difference however, is that legal immoral behavior is not intrinsically immoral (i.e. in and of itself is wrong, or almost every… Read More

I can think of three types of "immorality", maybe there are more... One is a social concept. A person could be considered "immoral" because they wear their skirts too short or because of who they sleep with. Immorality in this sense is simply deviation from a social norm. This sort of "immorality" is caused by an individual who believes they don't have to abide by the social norms. Second, you have a religious concept. It's… Read More
A: 'Holy' could mean righteous or moral, or it could mean highly religious. In each case, 'unholy' has the reverse meaning. In the first case, there is a benefit to society that people be moral in their dealings. For this reason, we punish immoral people when the overstep the mark. In the second case, there is no particular benefit to others whether a person is highly religious or not. Some would prefer a non-religious person… Read More

I think you're asking "What is Immoral?" If so, morals are rules a society as a whole chooses and agrees to live by, so anyone, anything, or practice, that breaks down that social structure would be considered immoral.

In Christian belief, the devil is a spirit, not a person. Presumably if the devil could impersonate a human person, you could easily tell by the fact that the person had no life history, simply appearing from nowhere, with no known relatives, no friends, no schooling or work history. More rationally, there is no evidence the devil even exists. There is no mention of Satan (the 'adversary') in any Old Testament scripture written before the… Read More
