Relgious cause and effect

I don’t think religion(except the more extreme sects of fundamentalism) causes society to become dysfunctional. Rather, when the institutions of society are corrupt, the economy is poor and education levels are low, and crime is high, people tend to become more religions.
If society and the economy work well and people have more prosperity, people simply have less need to embrace religion.
Religion, quite frankly, has a stake in corruption, crime and insecurity(be it personal, financial, etc.)
