Should Religion Be Explored in Literature?

Should religion be a topic that is explored in literature? Should literature critical of a particular religion be banned? What about books that are written to attract people to a certain religion?

I agree that religious propaganda should be banned but that the subject of religion need not be repressed. People have the right (in our society) to choose what they believe so long as it does not harm others. Religious literature should be available for those who wish to explore, study, or understand other religions and beliefs.
Religion may be explored in literature but the majority of it will be directed at a specific target audience and so only those interested in the subject will read it. Criticism of religions should not be overly encourage but constructive comparrison of religions is not a bad thing.
