I would say that the idea of religion being truth is a contraction.
Alcohol also brings people together for the worship of intoxication.
Alcohol, like religion, would be plain good for you given that alcohol and religion had no bad side effects. Religious assemblies, unlike alcoholic assemblies, don't necessarily have to include abandoning reason.
Not enough information there for me. Religious people assembling for what?

If you mean an assembly to pray to a god together then, yes, it is the abandoning of reason. But the religious assembly goers often admit to this because they themselves speak of faith vs reason.

Alcohol is a far better idea. Great thinkers and reasoners meet over a drink or 5, and may even slip under the table.
Oh, and really drunk people speak in tongues. I've heard them. This maybe where a middle ground is often met.
