A Hybrid Religion is formed when two existing types of religious disorders coalesce, combine their symptoms, and meld into a single new variant. This is believed to occur when Relig-ion particles, combined with other elements such as Puritanite, Repressium and gold, form variants of Religion, which more easily blend with other varieties. It is a step in the natural selection and evolution of religion. By exchanging their strengths, the offspring religion is regarded as stronger and more robust. However, this offspring has been known to fracture along ethnic lines.
