CT on top 10 events of the year

I guess I really am alone in thinking that terrorism remained one of the major “religion” news stories of the year. Christianity Today has its list out now and they have also produced a terrorism-free top 10.

CT did have this interesting item at No. 7:

Media Spotlight Religion: 2004 “values voters” bring reporters into churches, Time releases list of 25 most influential evangelicals, The New York Times promises more religion coverage, and CNN hires full-time religion correspondent.

Any other interesting lists out there?

    A thorough deconstruction of yesterday’s NYT frontpage story is due. The paper of record showcases its ignorance on A01.

    Does Narnia walking out of the WTO talks count as a religion story?

    That is SO funny! ;-)

    I think the media (once again) got “punk’d.” Ouch.

    I don’t think terrorism belonged on CT’s list. It was not a list of the top 10 religion stories, but of the top 10 stories for evangelicals. And unless you know of some evangelical terrorist sleeper cell, I’d say it’s more of an Islam story.
