Religion news you should know

From A Religious Liberal Blog comes word that the Church of England has voted to remove barriers to women's ordination as bishops. There is also a link to a piece by the wonderful Karen Armstrong: "The label of Catholic terror was never used about the IRA."

Karen Armstrong (author of Islam: A Short History), by the way, has written a beautiful memoir, The Spiral Staircase: My Climb Out of Darkness.

I simply can't WAIT for the Crusades to begin!

To be fair, though, the Episcopal Church in America has had women bishops for several years, and Gene Robinson, of course, is a gay bishop.
