Religion

(This page was most recently updated on 10 April 2016)

Academic and journalistic observers of religion:

  • Religion & Politics, “Fit for Polite Company.”  Leans heavily towards progressive Christianity
  • Religion Dispatches, which declares itself to represent “expert opinion, in-depth reporting, and provocative updates from the intersection of religion, politics and culture”;
  • The Revealer, “a daily review of religion & media” from New York University’s journalism department

Christian ethics:

  • Inward/Outward, each day a brief, provocative statement of Christian ethics, drawn from writers past and present;
  • Godthings, similar in concept to Inward/ Outward, but tends to provide longer quotes and more substantive theology;
  • David Hayward, the Naked Pastor, was ordained as a Presbyterian minister but now spends more time drawing cartoons than filling pulpits
  • Sojourners, progressive Christianity explained by progressive Christians who very much want you to know that they are progressive

Anglicans:

Judaism:

Lutherans:

Mormons:

Muslims:

  • The Long Black Veil and Life Within It,”  by Kashmir’s greatest fan of P. G. Wodehouse, Sabbah Haji.  Not exactly about religion, but she will shatter every stereotype you’ve ever had of a hijab-clad Muslim woman;
  • Love, InshAllah, “the Secret Love Lives of American Muslim Women”

Orthodox Christianity:

Quakers:

Reformed Church adherents:

Roman Catholics:

Secularists:

*I am fully aware of the irony of both halves of the word “bigshot” as applied to Quakerism
