    I think most religions have a form of it. It think confucianism came up with it first.

    My experience of religion, limited though it is, is that the focus is on service to self and the congregation with some leaning towards other churches of the same brand of faith.

    Well, what they say and what they do, if they do it at all, are two different things. Justification is forever an issue.
