" perhaps more so than on a hypocritical "organised religion"?"
Certainly not
Organised religion has never made any bones about putting itself at the disposal of the establishment, particularly that of the far-right Franco - Mussolini- Pinochet.... any tinpot South American dictator you could care to name did what they did with 'God's blessing', and the scriptures were often used to justify their actions "doing God's work'.
Those churchmen unwise enough to stick their head above the parapet were soon given short shrift - the French worker-priest, Romero.... gone in a flash
The genuine faithful were not given the choice
