Re: US court will hear religious challenge to health law’s contraceptive mandate

Politics and religion are polarizing philosophies that function as competing software for the hardware of our mind. Liberalism and humanism are read-and-write software that updates but corrupts old files; while conservatism and fundamentalism are read-only software that copies but freezes old files. Stymied by incompatible software, our mind scans cyberspace seeking new, syncretic software.
