America debates as Terri Schiavo grows ever weaker. The world commemorates Good Friday and Easter. Pope John Paul II winces in agony as he unsuccessfully tries to speak his blessing. The Colorado Supreme Court overturns plans to execute a murderer-rapist because jurors consulted a Bible during deliberations. The U.S. Supreme Court upholds an execution despite a violation of jury instruction rules regarding his religious conversion. The Supreme Court also rejected an appeal regarding an Idaho parental consent abortion law. The investigations continue into the shootings in Red Lake and Milwaukee. Jerry Falwell is "critically ill" and hospitalized with pneumonia. See a theme?

Launched in 1999, Christianity Today’s Weblog was not just one of the first religion-oriented weblogs, but one of the first published by a media organization. (Hence its rather bland title.) Mostly compiled by then-online editor Ted Olsen, Weblog rounded up religion news and opinion pieces from publications around the world. As Christianity Today’s website grew, it launched other blogs. Olsen took on management responsibilities, and the Weblog feature as such was mothballed. But CT’s efforts to round up important news and opinion from around the web continues, especially on our Gleanings feature.
Ted Olsen
Ted Olsen is Christianity Today's executive editor. He wrote the magazine's Weblog—a collection of news and opinion articles from mainstream news sources around the world—from 1999 to 2006. In 2004, the magazine launched Weblog in Print, which looks for unexpected connections and trends in articles appearing in the mainstream press. The column was later renamed "Tidings" and ran until 2007.
