The cliché about polite conversation is that there are two things never to discuss: religion and politics. We at Sightings know better (at least about religion). 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.

Editor's note: Sightings will be taking a break in observance of Labor Day. We will return with twice-weekly columns beginning Thursday, September 8th.
