    It hasn't. Religion has been far more destructive than constructive. However, that's not to say that religious people aren't constructive.

    religion itself has only produced law. Catholicism was what created the colonies, and the missions that either converted the other religions or killed. religious people on the other hand are very constructive. Note: I AM A CHRISTIAN i am not badmouthing christians just using it as an example.

    this skirts the issue of who are real Christians and who are name only, but setting that issue aside for th emoment, clearly,

    many orphaages, hospitals and school, the abolition of slavory came about through Christianity and evern the scientific revolution in post reformation Europe Likewise we see many many undenialble accolplishments of Jews in modern tiems and Arabs as well

    however the ultimate test is ultimately is a question of truth

    if Jesus is the Jewish Messiah and the Jewish prophets point to HIm, the Biblically Jewish fiath is constructive

    if Jesus is the Son of God the Savior, and true... then it is ultimately very constructive

    if Islam says it a sin to say God has a son and denies Jesus died on the cross it is opposing the real work of God...

    (just callin a spade a spade)

    The Catholic Church ruled most of medievil Europe with an iron fist, quashing modern thought and leading several invasions into the middle east.

    Islam has its fair share of bloody conflicts, including the crusades, and i suppose the extremists that we now find ourselves engaged with

    The Jews have Israel, and all the problems is Superiority-complex brings
