      is a different story. I write the equivalent of a Religion Column here much like there might be one in a newspaper. There are several other places, regular, long-standing diaries, where religion is discussed. Atheism is also discussed. (I think it would be cool to have an atheist column in the religion section of every newspaper). The one thing we don't do that some evangelicals and fundies do, however, is try to convert people.

      Asking your neighbor where they go to church is rude. Writing a diary or series about religion in what is essentially a giant, 24-hour online newspaper, is journalism.
