Truth or Convenience?

In another thread I came upon the quote: "why someone would want to be part of a church who doesn't want them, I can't fathom"

Which echos many many that have gone before it. What I find incongruous about it is the almost consumer economic mentality it brings to religion.

Is it just me, or does this reduce faith traditions that claim to provide meaningful guidance on living and to hold the key to eternal truths underlying the nature and purpose of existence to the level of restaurants - "I don't like that one, the waitrons are surly"? What about the aspect of true belief and faith? I realise most of us have come to our paths from other paths, but have we really reduced faith and religion to a comodity?
