Sightings: Religion in Public Life

The cliché about polite conversation is that religion is one of those things never to discuss. We at SIGHTINGS know better. We seek out and comment on the events, agents, and trends in public life where issues of religion are writ large, in plain view—or are simmering under the surface.
