Most of us at one time or another have made the mistake of assuming that religions primarily exist to cultivate and promote human spirituality. But that is not true. Religions deal with spirituality primarily by distracting, insulating, and misleading people. They deal with spirituality mainly by pointing people away from whatever real spirituality they might possibly have. All religions — as actually practiced — do that. If you want a spiritual life, then religions are not your friends. You can cherry pick a few bits of wisdom from them, but for the most part — for most of all they do — they are little more than bullshitting you. That at least, is how I see it. Your mileage might vary.
