The Structure Of Religion

We had a decent general discussion on religion last night on Funeral's list. I wanted to continue it a little bit, but from a different point of view. I believe a clear majority underestimates the importance of the structure that religion gives to our lives. Take for example marriage (which is and should be an entirely religious institution - politicizing it has proven to be a disaster) which highlights the importance of 'the family unit'. People are more successful when they have someone they know they can fall back on during hard times. Also, how about taking a day out of the week to step back from the stress and anxiety caused by life? The recognition of a Sabbath day (religious or not) allows for this rest, and it seems like even people thousands of years ago knew that you couldn't go non-stop every day of the year. There's countless other examples as well. The point is religion has forged ways of living that are ideal and recognized as being helpful to individuals.
