I recently discovered a Washington Post project called On Faith, which gets together a whole bunch of different people--from Sam Harris to Cal Thomas--and asks them questions about religion. The most recent question got 16 responses, and the full list of panelists has something like 80 members. I've only read a few entries, but it looks like it could serve as a good way to check America's collective religious pulse (as opposed to that of a couple of sects). Brief observations:
The Good: An Episcopal priest encourages adults to think about religion. Good advice, even if it comes from someone whose conclusions I disagree wtih.
The Bad: A nun insists we're all dealing with the same God, he just talks to us in different languages. So "the Pope can make infallible statements" and "the Pope cannot make infallible statements" are really two ways of saying the same thing?
