faith-based blogging

New York Times pontificates on religious bloggers on their radar, in: Faithful Track Questions, Answers and Minutiae on Blogs. Did you pick up the dismissive tone:

“But whether conservative or liberal, most religion-based blogs seem to be created by people on the extremes of the religious spectrum.”

And, for political correctness, links to an interfaith selection of A-list faith-based bloggers: feministmormonhousewives.blogspot.com (hope she doesn’t get excommunicated for blogging, or censured, the way a number have been fired for blogging), relapsedcatholic.com, blogs4god.com, lovethyummah.com, aidelmaidel.blogspot.com, reallivepreacher.com, evangelicaloutpost.com.

If they weren’t A-listers before, they are now. Can’t get much more exposure than NYTimes.com. Even mentions GodBlogCon. Notably absent – yours truly. 🙂

[update 3/6/05] WaPo also chose this weekend to put faith in the spotlight, even on its Metro front page (Sunday’s print edition), The Business of Filling Pews: Congregations Employ Marketing Consultants to Step Up Appeal and on its Style front page, Right With God: Evangelical Conservatives Find a Spiritual Home on the Hill. I’ve not yet checked LATimes to see if this other newspaper juggernaut is doing likewise.
