Appalling: Article on the surprisingly widespread practice of gay exorcism in pentecostal/evangelical churches. I’m not sure which is more frightening – the prospect of this being done to gay youth or the fact that several of the churches I attended as a child probably would have tried this on me had I turned out to be batting for the other team (Details magazine).

Debatable: The demise of the TNIV Bible translation and the kerfuffle over the use of gender neutral language (Tony Jones)

Thought-provoking: What do questions mean for faith? A topic I am extremely devoted to. (Randy Elrod)

Touching: How do we represent God? Can we ever get it right, and what does God think when we get it wrong? (Shaun Groves)

Tragic: Child-soldiers in Somalia, used not by terrorist but by the legitimate government the U.S. supports politically and financially. The worst part is that compared to the life they can expect as civilians, many of them are better off in the military (NY Times).
