In early 1999-NOV, we started to collect news items which
described incidents of religious intolerance. Then we stumbled across a
single news item which covered an act of religious tolerance. So, we
decided to add an additional list where we could report news items which
promoted religious tolerance. In 2005-JUN, we enlarged the scope of this section
to include neutral, informational news items on religion, that did not include intolerance,
tolerance or conflict.
This listing should be interpreted with care. We list major
news items related to religious tolerance and religious information. We do not report the
actions of millions of devout believers of all faiths, who, day after day,
help the hungry, homeless, broken and hurting throughout the world,
regardless of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, etc.
An additional source of religious news:
"RELIGION IN THE NEWS," is produced by The Leonard E. Greenberg
Center for the Study of religion in Public Life. See:
In accordance with Title 17 U.S.C. sec 107: The news items contained in
the above hyperlinks are provided by the Ontario Consultants on Religious Tolerance, and are
intended to be available to anyone interested in the topics included, for
educational purposes only. Any editor, author, Webmaster, writer,
publisher, news service, etc that objects to being part of this listing
may request that future works be excluded. We will also attempt to delete
all previous entries from the same source. Our postal address is: PO Box 128, Watertown, NY, 13601, USA.
