      I think you have to distinguish between religion and spirituality. Both can give people support and a sense of security. But religion is more than just faith; it is also a community in which certain meaningful and less meaningful rules apply. Not all religions are open to change. I myself am not a spiritual person, but I know people who believe. Most of them have the feeling that life has a meaning and that it somehow continues after death. I think that can be a positive experience for some people.

  • Like sports and politics and even music and actors/actresses, it's something that "fans" heavily invest in emotionally. That is to say: because they are so emotionally attached to "the thing" (the particular religion or sports team or political figure or song or singer or whatever), it's important to them that their acquaintances support and/or approve "the thing", and the emotional investment can become so extreme that, to an emotionally-invested person, it can seem perverse - or even repulsive - to encounter someone who does NOT support or approve of "the thing".
