I would comment that anything which claims to be, or represents itself
as (either explicitly or implicitly) as intitutionalized spirituality
can and does do serious harm to many people.  I would also comment that
spirituality cannot, IMO, be institutionalized.  So once again I say
that what you are describing as religion is, in fact, nothing of the
kind, but a human invention for the purposes of people-control.

I wrote a small booklet called "True Religion" which I will try to dig
out, revise, and upload.
