This is an interesting theory. Kind of a "limited hangout", in that it appears to address all the issues of spirituality while actually being a conduit for control by the state or by a small powerful group.

Christianity used to be anti-state, then suddenly a few hundred years later it is the religion of the state! There is something powerful about institutionalizing rebellion. It fools people for a long time because they don't see how the rebellion has been stymied behind closed doors.
