JOHN KERRY BELIEVES THAT UNDERSTANDING EACH OTHER’S FAITH CAN LEAD TO A HEALTHIER SOCIETY. Ever since the beginning of civilization, religion has played an important, even central role in the lives of people. Much of what we are today is the result of a society whose ideologies have been shaped by the religious evolution of humans. Religion has had a monopoly over legal, educational and most secular aspects of human life for ages. Today, however, there is a separation of state and religion, so that religion does not enjoy the kind of hold over all human activities today as it once did. Despite this, religion still affects the world in many ways, and happens to be one of the most discussed, speculated and controversial issues in the 21st century.
