Well, I am asking YOU - can you give ONE charactetistic that applies/holds well to each and every religion ?

If you can't - you can't even define religion.

Dishonesty.
Marrying a 6 year old and waiting until she reaches puberty and maturity before having consensual sex is better than walking up to
a stranger in a bar and proceeding to have relations with no valid proof of the intent of the person. Muhammad wins. ~ Fatihah

It's true -- religion is hard to define, and sociologists have argued over this for a long time.

For practical purposes, I view religion as a category of social identity founded in metaphysical beliefs.

This makes (say) Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism, Taoism, animism, New Age spirituality or belief in Deepak Chopra's idea of quantum mechanics religions, but being say, an atheist, or descending from a Jewish mother, believing the Big Bang credible, or being a zealous supporter of the Manchester United football team are not. :)
