Does religion separate us "and" belief unite us ?

Notice the logic in this statement "and".  The juxtaposition creates controversy.  Replace the "and" with an "or" the logic creates empathy.  Therefore, do ceremonial and ritual acts "written or non-written" preclude our understanding of what we believe? If you believe something.. is it based only on personal experience ?  What are your beliefs ?See More

"One way of defining religion is as that which we worship.  Some of us worship God as an image, form or charm to protect us and to bring us good luck.  Others worship such objects as money or less tangible objects such as beauty and power.…"
