I was under the impression that, over the last five years or so, Greg had moved away from a theory that initiation was into a specific dieties mysteries towards a theory that the initiation that happened on reaching adulthood was often into a cultures pantheon, with further initiation to a particular diety being something that happened afterwards for some people. The nature of *often* being debateable.

Perhaps the lay status is a reflection of this cultural pantheonistic initiation?
