This morning, the John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics at Washington University in St. Louis launched a new, and very ambitious, online news journal, Religion & Politics .
The journal strikes me as scholarly but accessible, lively but not partisan, informed in the deepest sense of the word, but not afraid to take a position or to push the envelope. Full disclosure - I am on their media advisory board as are some of my favorite writers and thinks, including Cathleen Kaveny and Mark Silk. Additionally, I was delighted to have an article I wrote for them be one of their featured articles in their premiere edition, posted this morning.
Put this new blog on your blog roll. It instantly becomes a must-read for those who care about religion and politics and the confounding ways they often intersect.
