Top Definition
'economically religious' is a descriptive term which refers to the belief system and mindset of a person (or group of people) who care much more about money, finances and the economy than absolutely anything else (including, but not limited to, their own health, other people's health and their local or global environments)

supporting background:

- people who are 'economically religious' promote their destructive and unfair totalitarian ideology based in authoritarian control and materialism

- sadly, to a moralist, and in truth, there appears to be a much greater percentage of the world's population who are 'economically religious' than those who are not 'economically religious', and, both groups seem incredibly strange to one another

- like many false deities and false doctrines, economies are not real things; they are merely concepts and ideas which are continually morphing and inevitably lead to compliance and control of large groups by authority figures

- financially poor people are not immune from becoming 'economically religious'; very few people on this planet are immune to this 'mind poison'
ex. (1) All bankers and most politicians are 'economically religious'.
ex. (2) The people who truly manipulate and run the economies of the world depend on the masses being 'economically religious'.
ex. (3) When the 'economically religious' movement hits a critical mass level, their hedonism will destroy planet Earth.
ex. (4) Glenn Jessome is one individual, living in the modern world, who is not 'economically religious'. This makes him 'seem' strange.
ex. (5) The elite within the 'economically religious' are behind all major wars and conflicts, hunger and unnecessary spread of preventable diseases.
ex. (6) Neither cave men nor the characters of Star Trek were 'economically religious', so it is possible that humanity can exist without this destructive materialistic totalitarian ideology, although most people are too 'economically indoctrinated' to comprehend this fact.
ex. (7) Since the advent of money as a means to facilitate trade, Diogenes of Sinope was one of the greatest people to push back against initiatives of the 'economically religious'. As the 'story' goes, apparently Jesus pushed back against the money changers in the temple by tipping over their trade tables and even whipped the money changers to get them out of the place of worship. In modern times only Iceland seems to have made some progress against the initiatives of debt-slavery by the elites of the 'economically religious'.
