    I know you mentioned it's a satire on other things but really, is'nt monotheism stretching it? It's a satire on the tyranny of the state, on Bolsheveism, Nazism - two ideologies that Orwell literally fought during his life time. I doubt he saw similar dangers emanating from his old Parish Church.
