religion is like any other large organization

Indavidually, the local ministers (by whatever term you call your preacher) generally have best intentions and do a great deal of good in the community but as you move up the organization to the larger whole, you find more flaws due to human nature and established policies. I quite like my local minister but the "church" as in greater organization tracing back to Rome has a disapointing history of self-service. At the same time, I've no issues with the concept of God (Gods, for the poly-deity readers) but the fanclub terrifies me.

Yeah, Bush and Rice; polititions. If 90% of the population was Muslim or Hindu, they'd suddenly be publicly faithful Muslim or Hindu followers.
