1. Deepak Chopra: Can Spirituality Heal Suffering?
“The idea that suffering contains a spiritual message goes beyond fatalism and idealism both, because the distinction between inner and outer, physical and mental is erased. Instead, we are seen as pure spirit, which has chosen to walk on the stage of the natural world in order to play out soul dramas.”

2. Kristin Aune: Why Feminists are Less Religious
“The results show that, when compared with the general female population, feminists are much less likely to be religious, but a little more likely to be interested in alternative or non-institutional kinds of spirituality… Many liberals and feminists, concerned about the rise of fundamentalism and its erosion of women’s rights, conclude similarly that feminism and religion have little in common.”

“On Tuesday night’s episode of The Colbert Report, special guest Stephen Prothero joined the host for a wide-ranging discussion of the world’s religions aimed at answering an important question: which religion is the best? After giving up Catholicism for Lent, and then giving up Judaism because he liked it too much, Colbert invited Prothero onto his show to help him find a suitable substitute.”
