Thinking about this a bit more, isn't tithing another reverse redistribution. As for it being desirable - it is usually voluntary. So even if your community started in a equal wealth state (in some way), a charismatic religious leader could undo it. They probably wouldn't even have to be religious - just have the right cause.

In theory, individual priests did not own the tithes they collected. Also, in the last 1000+ years tithing was not voluntary in most cases.
