Noting that "the attitude seems to be much different from that of conforming one’s mind to the truth about the world," he quotes a blogger as observing that "it sounds weird to say 'converted to Buddhism' though we have no problem saying 'converted to Islam' or 'converted to the Catholic church.''"
