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

What is the goal of iOS news....interfaith? Positive? Uplifting?
My thought is that it will be interfaith and more positive than negative. I don't want to whitewash the news, but I certainly want to share stories that show interfaith is something that can be achieved and worked toward. At the same time, I'm open to stories that show tensions between faiths, but nothing that straight on says "we'll never succeed at it, so why bother trying to be understanding and tolerant."

I thought maybe I'll work on looking for better stuff, that fits your description
A number of the ones you posted are interesting and I think merit inclusion. Perhaps we need to have a general religion category and one category that specifically focuses on interfaith.

I've thought more on this and in looking at the tradition of IO's previous news posts, we will certainly have multiple categories: one of Religion in the News and one of Interfaith in the News.

a figment of your imagination
The US is getting more interfaith and tanner! White Christians no longer the majority. The headlines like to say minority....which is really a misnomer since they are still the largest group (both whites and Christians) in the states...they are only a minority against everyone else combined.

Reminds me of a saying someone spouted in my youth... As long as it is me and G!d we are always in the majority.
