  1. A better version of the Roundup by someone else? No, Mr. Gibson, you did more than good today. A informative and enlightening Religion News Roundup for today! But then all of your contributors always do a good job with the RNR. Now that I’ve sucked up to you and the RNR staff watch out, I might not be so nice commenting on some of these stories, guess I would call them some of these stories villians, at least those who continually are defending themsselves from some sort of legal charges. Sigh.
