Religion News & Views

The King of Saudi Arabia, King Abdullah, plans to participate in a UN-sponsored interfaith dialogue. Pray for the event and for the progress of religious freedom around the world.

After 2.5 years, there's a report that Robert H. Schuler (the elder) has removed Robert A. Schuler (the younger) from the pulpit and TV ministries of Crystal Cathedral, citing "lack of shared vision and the jeopardy in which this is placing this entire ministry." What? Was the younger Schuler beginning to preach the gospel?

In the "Can you really do that?" category: Islamic clerics ban tomboys.

Video of Joel Osteen on why he doesn't talk about sin and being afraid of God and speaking in tongues.

Apparently the 11 churches in Virginia that broke away from U.S. Anglicans are winning their courtroom battle to retain their property. At least that's the way it looks to one observer. While we're thinking of Episcopalian happenings, a couple interesting reports on some other local dioceses breaking away and a battle between Schori and Bishop Duncan of Pittsburgh. See here and here.
