It's an exciting time to plant a multiethnic church. The next Pope could be Filipino (Archbishop Luis Antonio Tagle), and the next President could be Cuban American (Marco Rubio)

SINERS!!! Is Billy Graham (and others of his ilk) a law-breaker? Stephen Prothero seems to think so:
Early last year the OHF Book Club that I moderate read "God Is Not One" by Stephen Prothero.  It's an analysis of several world religions, and it begins with an interesting conceit.  Prothero is opposed to the Perennial Philosophy, which posits that all religions are one, …
Gettysburg Address 2.0: I'm struck by how this inaugural address was in many respects a reworking of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. There Lincoln read the founding through the Declaration of Independence, arguing that America was FOUNDED on the principle of equality. And he urged his fellow Americans to make that equality so, racially. Here Obama did the same, evoking Jefferson, Lincoln, and King to argue that equality is our "common creed" and challenging us to make it so, now in terms not only of race but also of gender and sexual orientation (Selma/Seneca Falls/Stonewall). A surprisingly strong speech. ~Stephen Prothero

I differ from Stephen Prothero. I think Franklin Graham and Ralph Reed know that there is no god, but love power.
To all of those whom think Obama is a MUSLIM please read! Editor’s Note: Stephen Prothero, a Boston University religion scholar and author of “The American Bible: How Our Words Unite, Divide, and Define a Nation,” is a regular CNN Belief Blog contributor. By Stephen Prothero, Special to CNN Before I comment on a new survey on religion and the presidency, I want to say one thing: Barack Obama is not a Muslim. The U.S. president does not observe the Five Pillars of Islam. He does not worship in a mosque. He does not call himself a Muslim. Why not? BECAUSE HE IS NOT A MUSLIM! Also, Mitt Romney is not a Hindu. He does not believe in reincarnation. He does not worship the Hindu god Shiva. He does not self-identify as a Hindu. Why not? BECAUSE HE IS NOT A HINDU! I say this, and I do so in capital letters with exclamation points, because of a survey released Thursday by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life regarding voter perceptions of the religious beliefs of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. The people a ...

I realize that I'm a real nerd based on the fact that I'm every bit as excited to have met Stephen Prothero and had him sign my book as I would be if I'd met Geddy Lee and had him sign my Rush albums.
Thanks to the Aurora Massacre there’s been a lot of loose talk about Miss God (see above) and what she was up to regarding it. To take but one example at CNN’s website Holy Dweeb (aka. “Belief Blog Contributor”) Stephen Prothero
For a better account of Jefferson, read "The American Bible" by Stephen Prothero. Or Christopher Hitchens' short biography of Jefferson.
Stephen Prothero: Thomas Jefferson was no religious stalwart. But there is a broader issue about the use/abuse of our 'civil' scriptures.

So we heard the confirmation of what percentage of Americans know versus don't know (that there is a Divine Power, who is God, (on John King USA CNN). Stephen Prothero, author of "God is not One," and "Religious Literacy, What Every American Needs to Know-And Doesn't" was guest, and he reminded us that it's only about 3%, who are still atheists in America, or shall we say in the whole world. Yes, according to the CIA World Factbook, that is correct. Moreover, there’s about 2.1 billion Christians, and about 1.2 billion Muslims. If there’s supposedly 6 billion people in the world and atleast about five other religion practiced, it is clear, none could surpass Christianity in number. This was why it was shocking for a Dean of one of the schools of a renown university, to recently open her mouth at her school’s graduation ceremony, and as the first statement, said, ”it is a myth that Christianity is the most predominant religion in the world. It’s not." What? Excuse us? The only way this statemen ...
