If yes, then you have your answer.

To some people, the same as you, the only thing positive they have in their life is their religion.

I remember a post someone else and I made on the RDS forum, comparing the Habs legion to the Muslims, the reasons why we call Montreal the hockey mecca. It was a nice thread.
You are mixing faith and religion.

Having faith in something doesn't make one religious. And being religious doesn't mean that person has faith.

Believing in something, worshipping, thinking and wishing (aka praying) is one thing. Following a religion is another, in my opinion.

A religion has rules. Sure, as fans, we make rules, like watching the games, like only supporting our team, etc.. But these rules are fan-made, not Canadiens-made.

We are faithful, worshippers, yes, but does that make us religious? I like to think not.
