19. When you replace one religion with another, you have to replace the rituals too.

 

It's been done, and quite effectively. Status and Virtue Signalling have replaced the Sunday offering and Daily Catechisms. Instead of prayer they offer Likes. They beseech GoFundMe and Patreon instead of the Shriners and the local synagogue. You don't go to the Inquisitor, you get your life crushed by the faceless mob of Twitter. Your dreams of heaven are now dreams of next years' vacation. Same stuff, same delivery, different words.

Unfortunately, no one has discovered a method to force everyone to agree with your ideals AND not impose a religion on them, so they had to pick one or the other (and not forcing everyone to do what they want is anathema to the entire priest...I mean political...class to begin with).
