    In an effort to help Steve cull articles to update IOs news section... And due to our "watching headlines" thread forbids religious articles. I am starting this thread as a depository for articles we find regarding religion...in the news.

    If you wanna start a discussion on any of these topics...start a new thread...that way when folks see the news article on our front page....they can also find the discussion in the forum...

    I would like to point out that that site is not impartial. I don't disagree with anything particular in that article but if the site is to be used as a source it should be looked closely at first. "Why Are “Moderates” so Reluctant to Criticize Religion?", in 'Letter from our Chairman' the Vatican is vilified and in "The Struggle For Europe" on Islam in Europe (the author of witch is likened to Newton, Darwin, Einstein and Freud on the site).

    Tread with caution.

    I like this idea, as well, as I get the backend of the site ready to update news stories. Thanks for doing this, wil.

    I also very much agree with what ACOT's point. We need to hold ourselves to a high level of credibility when we're updating the news section.

    The postal vote in Australia about same-sex marriage is raising conservative hackles who see it posing a threat to 'religious freedom'.

    It is the news....but does beg the question...

    What is the goal of iOS news....interfaith? Positive? Uplifting?
