Thanks.  I appreciate your comments.  I simply sometimes put a 
wordspin on things for dramatic effect.  That's the creative writer 
in me, as opposed to the literal news journalist.  In part, I do 
this not so much to attempt to represent your view, but moreso to 
stimulate some thought or counter-thought along a certain avenue.

I do, in fact, view many 'orthodox organizations' as little more 
than religious corporations that are in competition with each other, 
after the same manner as Walmart and Target Stores.  Each have their 
own products for sale, repackaged under different generic names, and 
they absolutely forbid cross-employment.

As far as religious Canons go, there are only a few of those, but 
Walmart and Target Stores have each produced their own 
translations.  Generic version.  Metaphorically speaking, of course.
