I agree, but then I don't think of the Vatican as a "religion", though it is strongly associated with a long history of pagan cultic worship practices. I think of it as a trans-national nonterritorial empire. But then I wasn't really looking first for causation, I'd really like to have some grasp of the correlation beyond "it looks that way to me".
