My definition of religion isn't the belief in a supreme being but rather the exploitation of a belief system, sometimes led by very religious leaders who might be atheists/hypocrites. When Jesus was on the earth just about all of his conflict with humans were with religious people. Religion by my definition is about advancing a culture often for the the purposes of self pomotion and/or controlling others, which is a counterfeit of true faith. I do not consider myself to be religious. I don't consider Jesus to be religious. Faith in God and being religious are by my definition, not the same thing. Freedom and government by the consent of the governed is also not the same as being a political hack, to offer a comparison.
