“Like most religions and cults, Hollywood has both idols and worshippers, and a hierarchy not unlike that of a church.
Its leaders do not have glorious titles such as Archbishop or Grand Lama, settling instead on being executives, producers, and directors.
Even so, the lack of high-sounding titles and fancy dress do not hamper them from being rulers—sometimes absolute rulers—of their world.
Like a church, Hollywood has active and passive members; some people make the rules, and others comply with them.
There are the acolytes and the priests of the cult, and the multitude of worshippers.”
–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
