Away Message: Top 5 Recommended Religion News Sources

Hope everyone had a good Mother’s Day! Belief Beat is on a break this week, while I’m visiting family overseas. (Unfortunately, I’m missing Pope Benedict’s visit to Cyprus by less than a month… Then again, between the volcanic ash still spreading from Iceland, the strikes bogging down travelers in Greece, and our inevitable interfaith christening confusion, this trip is already fraught with enough drama beyond my control!)

If anything major breaks before May 17, someone at Beliefnet will update this blog for me. In the meantime, here are my top five sites to check for religion news:

You really should add Religion Dispatches to your reading as well.
They carried the story about leading anti-gay activist Dr. George A. Rekers who sits on the board of the “ex-gay” outfit the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH), and is a founder of the Family Research Council along with Dr. James Dobson, who was caught taking a male prostitute, whom he found on, on a European vacation. This story never showed up on BeleifNet News and I have to wonder why.

The volcano stopped erupting, the ash was contained and the strikes in Greece ceased just in time for your interfaith christening to go on beautifully and “clearly” with no confusion at all!

Those are good sources, Nicole, but you’ll want to add Religion News Blog at to your daily reading schedule.
It provides a daily roundup of news articles about religious cults, sects, world religions, and related issues.
