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.

Sign up here to get Sightings in your inbox twice per week (every Monday and Thursday morning). You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
