The Functionalist Perspective seeks to understand the role that religion plays in society, and is premised on how religion satisfies basic needs. One basic need for people is a meaning system.

The benefits of equality in America grant people a path to their goals that every citizen appreciates, and other countries may not permit. Equality allows the citizens the opportunity to partake in education, religion, and chasing your dreams.
