I’ll be on Doug Pagitt Radio tomorrow (Sunday, December 19), going over my predictions for the year in religion from last year, recapping the big stories, and making my predictions for next year.
You can read my Five Predictions for 2010,
- Political correctness toward Islam will decrease
- The pope will not say or do anything particularly controversial
- Universalism will become a hot topic among evangelicals
- Rick Warren’s influence will wane and new evangelical leaders will emerge
- A handful of evangelical leaders will come out in support of GLBT marriage/ordination
- NYC mosque
- Religious response to the Haiti earthquake
- Catholic clergy sex abuse and cover-up
- Rise of the Tea Party
- Obama health care bill
- Denominational debates on GLBT issues
- Bankruptcy of the Crystal Cathedral
- Gay teen suicides
- Pew Forum survey showing atheists know more about Christianity than Christians
- No Protestant on the Supreme Court
So, how did I do?
