2. I'm just surprised this isn't the norm.

Since it's so easy to claim to be in the religion business, why does everyone do it? How about a tavern that worships Bacchus the god of wine? Maybe a restaurant that served as the temple of Edesia, the ancient goddess of feasting. A car dealership would be dedicated to Sol Invictus and his speedy sun chariot. How about a church for Bastet, the cat goddess, or just make something up to match your hobby or mood.

Tack up a few iconic posters, add some ritual celebration, an exhortation or two, and who doesn't love a good condemnation of some 'other' undeserving people to make your newly invented religion sound churchy... and very tax deductible? Then you sit back and start raking in all that lovely, tax free cash.
