Could it be that women are wired differently than males and have a stronger leaning toward spiritual things compared to males?
I don't buy into the "wired different" nonsense
It is cultural.
We live in a patriarchal society, regardless of the religion being followed and regardless of the culture that religion falls within. Inside of a patriarchal culture, women are groomed to be dependent and there is no better co- dependent structure than religion.
Women gravitate towards religion simply because it offers them a source of perceived personal power. Religion is their "penis"
