  2. reese says:

    i think thats this means that religion sometimes to stupid things for a religion that is based off of what one belive’s i agree because sometimes people really do stupid stuff for there religion just because “GOD” told them to they still consider them self good because in there eyes there doing what “GOD” told them to do

  3. kaihla says:

    this means that if a good person from Florida is really smart and a really nice person then he or she see’s a bad person from a different religion then that bad person will persue that good person to do bad things because of the bad person’s religion. the good person was probaly scared of that bad person and would do anything that the bad person say’s.

  4. rita says:

    i think that this quote is about how religion insults humans. also if your with or without it you would have good people doing good thing in the world and bad people doing bad thing in the world. to make good people do bad things in the world it only takes religion.

    this means that if a good person from middle school is really smart and a really nice person then he or she see’s a bad person from a different religion then that bad person will persue that good person to do bad things because of the bad person’s religion. the good person was probaly scared of that bad person and would do anything that the bad person say’s.

  6. Malik Lewis says:

    I think this quote means that is your religious than you do bad stuff because he said “To do bad things it take religion.” I dont agree because i think this is racist to people that are religious. I relate this to real life because this happens in real life. I’ve never seen this in a movie or a book but i have seen this in real life.

  7. rita says:

    i disagree with the quote because i dont think that there is such thing that make good people go bad but them selfs.

  8. Andrea says:

    I think that Steven Weinberg is trying to say that If a good person is really nice then they will do something good and if their is a bad person who is really mean does something bad then it most likely will be there religion that tells them to do said thing. I completely disagree with this because some people are from the same religion and do different things because of their personality. Like for example I’m friends with many people a lot of them are from my religion and they all are completely different from me like my sister for example I’m the good one and she is the bad one.

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes.” Steven Weinberg
    Without religion it would not be sinners and saints there would only be good and bad.

  10. Okeef says:

    The quote “Religion is an insult to human cause you do bad of it.”I agree with the quote . Why cause people do bad when there told to do good. Like a kid for instence if you tell him to dont do this they do the opposite.I relate this quote to a movie called scourer code the guy in the movie is told not to save the girl but he does any way.in religion you ask question everyone has on who created us. You wonder why and when you find that answer ur looking for you test it. Doing bad things that your maker told you not to do. You test him to see how far he’ll go.

  11. masean says:

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” I think it means that if you call a person by there religion the person will take it as an insult. i agree because people don’t like being called by there religion. there is a movie called the boy in the striped pajamas and the Jews
    did not like people calling them Jews.

  12. odaliz Garcia says:

    1.Having a religion is a insult to human dignity, having it or not,because if you have good people doing good and bad people doing bad you know that for a good person to do bad things it has to take religion.
    2.I don’t agree because i thought that having a religion is a good thing and not an insult.
    3.This quote isn’t like the one in my book because the girl’s mom is going to be religious ad even though she is good she always stayed the same because when you have a religion you believe in trust and faith.

  13. reoj norwood says:

    I agree with the quote because only your beliefs or your religion. If you believe that jesus is the almighty man and will someday come back to earth for the second coming. than you will want to cater him when he comes. you’ll want to worship him. For example, the KKK. The KKK was a group that hated black people, this was their religion. The religion details alot about your life and what you believe in so if you pick that religion than you will most likely follow it the best way you can. So at the end of this quote, I do agree with this quote.

  14. Michaela Charter says:

    I disagree with this quote religion is pure and trust werthy. Although people do horrible things religion is a sacred place of serenity we must turn back on. We are all human so we need a higher power to turn to for answers. There are many different religions that believe in different things, but in every one of those religions there are gods or a god and they believe in that higher power like I do.

  15. “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or whithout it, you`d have good people doing good thing and having evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg. I think he is trying to say that religion can over power a good person to do bad things. I agree with him because people who are in a religion will follow it no matter what.

  16. erick says:

    this means that a good person is used to doing good things and when the good person wants to do something evil it takes alot of work and needs to confess what the good person did wrong and when the bad person did something bad it is normal to them but when they do something good they feel a change in them and starts being thankful to god

  17. reoj norwood says:

    I agree with the quote because only your beliefs or your religion will determan what you do. If you believe that jesus is the almighty man and will someday come back to earth for the second coming, than you will want to cater him when he comes. You’ll want to worship him. For example, the KKK. The KKK was a group that hated black people, this was their religion.

  19. “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it,you’d have good people doing bad thing and evil people doing bad things, but for good people doing in bad thing, it take religion”. Steven Weinberg
    I disagree with Steven because how can religion be an insult to human dignity. Just because people are good and they do good things, that is on them. You can’t force someone to change. I would relate this to the world, people can chose to be religious. No mater what you do you can’t change them.

  20. Chanel Clark says:

    This quote is so good.I agree with this quote all the way. I can link this quote with The “Passion of the christ” This was the movie about Jesus, He did Good things those who were evil ( the ones that hate him) Were very evil, Jesus had to sacrifice his life to wash all the sins away, he didn’t want us to pay for are sins. The Romans are the people that killed Jesus. They are evil, I guess you can say that Jesus Took the choice of getting himself hung, it took religion. I feel so bad that he was such a good person, and had to die for us! I love Jesus always did always will. RIP Jesus. So i take this quote very seriously cuss it makes a lot of sense. =)

  21. antonio says:

    i agree because people in my house do good stuff and all of the girls in my house do bad stuff and all the good people do nothing and the bad people do evil things i can relate to this cause some of my family is evil and some are like angles.

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg
    This quote is saying without race there would be less issues, because people wont be picking at you because of you nationality or color. I disagree because regardless you are going to get criticized. I can connect this to Red Scarf Girl because she was put dot because of her race.

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg

    -Paraphrase
    I think it’s trying to say…If you commit a sin you should be ashamed of yourself.

    -Agree or Disagree
    I disagree with quote because everyday someone commits a sin and it dpesn’t mean they are a bad person.

    -Relate
    I can relate this to me. I can commits sins but to get rid of them i have to go t a priest and confess what i have done wrong and right.

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg

    Yup really don’t know like how to re-phrase it but its okay cause it is i guess. i dis-agree because its based on what ever religion what ever person it is . Yeah im out of ideas so yeah .

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg

    i agree with this quote because no matter what kind of religion you are it is not going to chance the person who are the the way you think or the decions you make religion or no religion you are who you are and that will never change

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg
    Response : I Disagree with this quote because it doesnt take religion to make a good person do a bad thing. Ihavent only seen this in a book or movie , but i have seen someone expierence this , i think that if you are in a good or a bad religion , you may end up doing something the oppisite of your religion. I think this quote is stereo type towards religious people and that they have to do things in their religion all the time.

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg

    i disagree with this quote because not all religion is insult to the human body it take a wise person to make it mind set on different things. When do bad things it should not be award as if you did something good. “Different things should not affect the human body as if with or out choices to take and not be mistreated on his/her behavior.”I can relate this The Skin I’m In Char was always judge on her religion and reward for ggood and bad things on the same choice.

  28. Rakeem Chambers says:

    Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg

    What this quote means is that it would take something someone believed in to make a good person do bad things. For example in the movie “Run lola Run” Lola is not a bank robber, but when her boyfriend needed money she robbed a bank.

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg

    i disagree with this quote because being religious doesn’t mean that your a good person, and being an atheist or just not religious doesn’t mean that your a bad person. my friend is an atheist and she is one of the nicest people i know and she doesn’t do anything bad. just because you believe or not does not show whether you are a good person or not. being a good person is how you act about and to things its whats is in your heart not if you religious or not. goodness and badness is how you act not what you believe in.

  31. Rakeem Chambers says:

    What this quote means is that it would take something someone believed in to make a good person do bad things which is why i agree with this quote. For example in the movie “Run lola Run” Lola is not a bank robber, but when her boyfriend needed money she robbed a bank.

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg

    paraphrase:religion makes people do bad things
    agree/disagree:i disagree because most religions you do good thinks and in some you do bad things but i think Steven Weinberg is trying to say religion is bad
    relating: i will relate this quote to run loala run

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg

    So basically what this quote is saying is that there’s always a good guy and a bad guy in a story. For example “God vs Satan” God is the good guy that likes to help people,and Satan causes kayos.

  34. Tamika Mincey says:

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg

    I think that this means that you don’t need to be religious to know if you are bad or good,and that it takes a lot of strength for a good person to to do a bad thing. I agree with his quote. I guess I can connect this to a book called Blue Bloods. A girl named Mimi has some kind of vampire religion. In the book, she is always doing bad things.

  35. Juan avelino says:

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg. i think what he is trying to say is that if your good you don’t need a religion to show that your a good person,and if you are a bad person and have a religion the religion is not going make you a good person if you have a dark heart. i agree with this quote because i think religion can change you for the better and worse but only if your willing to change i can connect this to a movie i saw that told of a man who killed 3 people was change the influence of god and that’s why i think that religion can change only if your ready to change.

  36. demier harrison says:

    Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg this quote is basically saying a person is a person no matter what there religion is but it makes sense but it doesn’t because if a person does not live by a ruling then what is a persons life a car with no road thats what it is i can connect this two my life because i leave by the holy bible

  37. Desiree Aiken says:

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg
    I think this quote means, when it comes to your personality, religion can insult who you are and the things you do. I disagree with this quote because religion can help you learn how to correct your mistake. I can relate this to a movie, I don’t know what it was called though. this man was living under a lie and he was going to get baptized but he know he committed a sin and so did another man. the baptized man got killed by the man he knew because he would not confess.

  38. Zyhann West says:

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.” Steven Weinberg I don’t agree with quote because having a religion isn’t an insult.i can’t relate this quote to any book nor movie because i never read nor saw nothing like this.
