To claim they have "religious status" is ridiculous. Granted, they are extremely popular, but, there's nothing religious about them. Elvis should
probably only be noted for his musical skill.
There's barely anything spiritual about these people. Diana, is probably the closest out of the people you listed, since she did a lot for charity,
and was generally seeming selfless.. but even then, she wasn't.
Another point to add, is that, religion has always led to bad results. When it comes to spirituality, to have a good idea, is brilliant. But, to make
it into a belief is silly. We're always wrong, and we always need to learn. Being spiritual is fantastic, but, to build a foundation of beliefs on
something you barely understand or can't comprehend is again, silly.
I believe in an afterlife, and I believe in a higher power. But, what that is?.. I have no idea, and I don't believe we're capable of "knowing"
until we get there. And, unless you're a medium or something, I doubt you "know" any more than I do
lol, I don't mean to rant. Just wanted to get my point across
