Religion and Ethics is a website I recently discovered, which is a companion to the WNET TV show and it promises to be a source of valuable information regarding religion.
Since its debut in 1997, RELIGION & ETHICS NEWSWEEKLY has set itself apart from the mainstream media by providing distinctive, cutting-edge news coverage and analysis of national and international events in the ever-changing religious world. Hosted by veteran journalist Bob Abernethy and produced by Thirteen/WNET New York, the acclaimed one-of-a-kind TV show examines religion’s role -- and the ethical dimensions -- behind top news headlines.
Major funding for RELIGION & ETHICS NEWSWEEKLY is provided by Lilly Endowment Inc. with additional support from Mutual of America Life Insurance Company, The Henry Luce Foundation, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and individual supporters.
One of the things I learned from listening to the show is that George Beverly Shea is now 102 years old and still sings his Christian spiritual hymns to large audiences... amazing.
I am always eager to learn more about religion...for my own reasons, of course.
Who is Justin Bieber?
After hearing the name Justin Bieber mentioned several times on TV this week, I decided to find out more about this person. And I read: "With a smooth voice, good looks and a string of hits, teen icon Justin Bieber has accumulated millions of fans and sold 3.7 million albums, according to Nielsen Soundscan. Now Bieber's handlers are showcasing another side of the 16-year-old pop sensation to strengthen his fan base: his Christianity."
That tells me all I want to know about Justin Bieber.
TO BE OR NOT TO BE absolutely IS the question, especially when one grows old and damnably frail.
