Organised Religion

How did it come to be acceptable to casually dismiss "organised religion"? Is a more disorganised religion more plausible? Isn't it just snobbery to brush a collective belief aside simply because it is a collective belief?

I see it as a symptom of the post-modern worldview. When all personal "truths" are viewed as equal, an organised group sharing the same truth and viewing it as the only truth is the natural enemy of that mindset. It also taps into the perspective that "organised religion" is responsible for all the world's ills, rather than humanity's rejection of the Truth who is Jesus Christ.

Organised religion is an easy target at the momment with "Islamic" terrorism in the media spotlight and the ongoing media-hyped "all RC priests are paedophiles".
