Religious News 2006 (Part 1)

by Jason Pitzl-Waters

There were a lot of hot religious stories in 2006, and it being the end of the calendar year many are counting down what they think are the most influential. The Religious Newswriters Association has published their results of a members-only poll of the top religion stories of 2006. Major themes seem to be political and moral shakeups within the Religious Right, the rise of liberal/moderate faith, and tensions in the Middle East. While modern Paganism isn’t mentioned in any of the top stories (or runners up), our communities were involved in several of their top news makers. For example, “The Da Vinci Code” film.

“The release of the film “The Da Vinci Code” adds to the previous buzz about Dan Brown’s novel. Religious critics, who say the book portrays traditional Christianity as a fraud, are divided over whether to boycott the film or hold discussion groups. Controversial plot lines include Jesus marrying Mary Magdalene and conceiving a child.”
