Religion is the prime culprit for the origin of inequality. The relationship between god and man, of priest and the common lad, of divine spirits in nature and the ordinary person, of knowledgeable and illiterate of the rituals, it created solidified the idea of inequality in the consciousness of man. The biological inequality and violence committed by strong men too got sanctioned when the middlemen and women performed complicated rituals and sacrifices to give divinity to oppression and subjugation by the wars. The crusades, communal riots, and the pogroms too confirm this fact.
