Define religious

Traditionally the British courts, and British dictionaries, defined religion as a belief in God or a Supreme Being.  This meant Buddhists, Jains, some other eastern religions and much of the New Age weren’t religious.

Another definition I have seen is “A religion is an organized collection of beliefscultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to an order of existence.” (Wikipedia)

This would certainly cover the examples above, and might also cover for example, humanism.
