I am not in fact a religionist (whatever that might be!). I am something
of a theologian, but so far as churches go I walked away from them
*because* of *their* dogmatism. Religion, to answer your question, is
a term usually derived from the Latin "religio" - to bond. Not all
scholars agree on this derivation, but no better alternative is offered
In any event, "bonding" is not necessarily a good thing. Hate gangs do
it, as do many animals and birds of prey. Maybe those bishops' miters
