Weblog has been overwhelmed with all the church convention news. (See our dispatches from Columbus, Ohio, on ECUSA's General Convention.) So we're just posting links of articles from last Saturday through today.

Here are some highlights: Presbyterians (PCUSA) get creative with the Trinity and allow local jurisdictions to break ban non ordaining self-avowed practicing gays. Episcopalians reject banning gay bishops, kind of. The Vatican asks Amnesty International not to push for worldwide decriminalization of abortion. And a Christian football film was not given a PG rating for its religious themes.

ECUSA gay bishops:

  1. Episcopalians defeat bid to nix more gay bishops | Episcopalians will continue consecrating homosexual bishops and allowing same-sex unions after its House of Deputies defeated a motion yesterday to stop both in the waning hours of their General Convention. (The Washington Times)

  2. Church regrets, won't repent for gay bishop | Episcopalians passed a resolution expressing "regret" for consecrating a homosexual bishop in 2003, but not "repentance" as many of the world's Anglican archbishops have urged. (The Washington Times)

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 is Christianity Today's editorial director. 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.
