Usually I'm in favor of merges when they add to a cohesive, comprehensive whole for the reader. Better to have one large reference than to have to clickhop all over the place. However, in this particular instance, I'm not so sure a merge is the best solution.
There is a lot more that can be added to this article to make it stand alone. While it certainly should be cross-referenced to furry spirituality, I think that this topic is encyclopedic in and of itself and should stand as a distinct entry.
As time permits, I would be happy to edit this article to add historical and cultural background, references, etc. to flesh it out a bit. I would also encourage other users with experience on the topic to contribute. For my part, I vote against a merge in this particular instance.
