Church literacy

Business and financial reporters are required to have a certain aptitude with their subject matter for acceptable coverage, and to another extent so do political reporters. Often it seems that religion reporters do not.

Sheila Reports promises a perspective here that you may not be getting in mainstream media and the politically charged blogosphere. Don’t expect political correctness, because politics doesn’t determine what’s correct. This space is grounded in the natural law and moral order. And it expects civility, goodwill and an openness to truth and reason.
