That is probably the prime reason that religion evolved. To create a structured theme that all in a group adhere to.
Of course, the job of money itself is to help define and separate. The rich, the poor, the entrepreneurs, the working class, etc. It creates a conflict of interest in the same social groups that are held together by the common bond of religion. Everything is perfect in the world right now, financially, but I can see where this could eventually cause problems. (Note to any religious person reading this: that was a joke.)
And too, some want the common bond of religion to expand out and become the common bond of law, so that those not in the religious group are still forced to pretend they are.
This is all too complex. Being prejudiced and selfish should be much easier.
