posted by bfeiler

With this blog, I thee wed. I’m using this occasion to join my colleagues at Beliefnet in a new joint-blogging venture called Casting Stones. As anyone who’s checked out the effort knows, it can be very fast-moving, occasionally heated, but […]

posted by bfeiler

FeilerFaster takes you where few other blogs, or at least few other blogs on Beliefnet, dare to go. Earlier this year, it was backstage at the Super Bowl. Now, the World Series! On Sunday night, following an all-night blow-out for […]

Go Forth

posted by bfeiler

Stop that Car!

posted by bfeiler

This is the funnest thing I’ve seen on the Internet in quite some time. NYC has a new taxi logo that’s absolutely hideous. It’s here on the right: NYC is block letters, followed by a circular T in a different […]

Empire State Building Celebrates Ramadan

posted by bfeiler

As a supporter of interfaith relations, I find it easy to be dismayed by the constant drumbeat of needless, knee-jerk anti-Muslim rhetoric coming out of the political-media realm today. I’ve been looking at old films of Moses for my new […]

posted by bfeiler

On my flight to Greece, I read the most extraordinary article in the WSJ about a man now becoming justly popular on the Internet: Randy Pausch. At 46 years old, he’s dying of cancer and his farewell speech to his […]
