Take away the money and it's just a social club.
Does that mean all businesses are actually religions, too?

But then again, form a group with someone claiming (or elected) to be a leader, and people donate money, and it can be about anything. If it is political, or a social - lobbying movement, it can even have polemic and tracts.

Doesn't make it a religion, even in 'warped' way. To call it a religion in the theist apologetic way to make any kind or group a 'religion' is not 'warped'. It is wrong, illogical and dishonest.
