We also have a list of religious intolerance news for this month. 
Sad to say, these are usually much longer lists.

bullet 2007-OCT-04: Again last month, we had no positive news to report. It seems that all news related to religion has a conflict component. Even a mostly positive report of a public school in Illinois whose student body is about 40% Muslim and that is now celebrating Ramadan, a Muslim holy month, included a negative side: an effort by some parents to retain only Christian observances.
bullet 2007-OCT-04: Mexicans are contented; Ugandans less so: Pew Research samples how satisfied people around the world are with their lives. Mexicans top the list with 76% saying that their level of life satisfaction is 7 out of 10 or more. Sweden is next at 72. Canada is third at 71%. The US is at 65%, lower than Spain (66%) and and Israel (68%). At 7%, Ugandan's have the lowest level of satisfaction. 1
