Here are today’s dispatches from the crossroads of faith, media and culture.

1. TLC says “I Do” to Preacher Wives. From The NY Daily News: Set in Atlanta, TLC is describing the show as a “candid look into the holy worlds of outspoken ladies” who work to keep churches running smoothly…“Preacher Wives” will follow the women as they help troubled or needy congregants, hire and fire staff, and occasionally step in and preach.
Comment: Will the show turn out to be a positive or negative reflection of religion in America?  Your guess is as good as mine.

2. Catholic League endorses pro-life October Baby. The group’s leader, Bill Donohue says “October Baby is the most gripping drama ever produced about the central civil rights issue of our time – the right to life. The script is superb, the acting is first-class, and the presentation is flawless. No one who sees this film will ever think the same way again about the tragedy of abortion. Young people, in particular, will find it intensely moving. This is a must-see movie for all Americans.”  The film opens nationwide on March 23rd.

No blog tomorrow. See you Monday.
