Religion Newswriters Award for best in-depth religion reporting in a series.

Who are we?

On December 31, 2016 we had our 36,540,335th viewer! We are #1 on Google search for "NYC religion." We were founded on July 9, 2010 and continue with your support. Thank-you so very much!
-----------------------------------

We are exploring the postsecular city.

Join us as we travel down all 6,374.9 miles of our city's streets, every alleyway and quite a few hallways to map and photograph every religious site and to interview clergy and lay leaders at the sites.

We are an incubator and educator for new ways of doing religion reporting and understanding the postsecular city. We are nonsectarian and nonpartisan and open to anyone's cool and authoritative reporting on NYC religion.

We are a public square for the postsecular city. People of faith, people of no faith, liberals, conservatives--all are welcomed to journey together to make this city better for all people. Our warmest feelings are toward those who help the poor, the needy, and the abused.

Our crack reporter senses the Buddha is close.

  • A Dissolving Age March 1, 2017
    We live in a dissolving age. Institutions, social forms, and traditional authorities recede. To the extent that they endure, they do so under the sign of choice, often reconfigured as economic or therapeutic projects. Man the entrepreneur and consumer is ascendant—or man the wounded, the victim of trauma or injustice. The old idea that we’re […]
  • The Party Theorist March 1, 2017
    Russia has annexed part of Crimea, has usurped America’s role as arbiter of winners and losers in the Middle East, and makes trouble in Ukraine. Putin is increasingly popular as the patron of anti-E.U. populism in Europe, and Moscow tried to influence the recent American presidential election. Once again, the Kremlin is in its old […]
  • While We’re at It March 1, 2017
    ♦ “The modern economy privileges the well-educated and highly-skilled while giving them an excuse to denigrate people at the bottom (both white and non-white) as lazy, untalented, uneducated, and unsophisticated,” writes Victor Tan Chen in The Atlantic (“ The Spiritual Crisis of the Modern Economy ”). The problem isn’t just that successful people have more […]

  • Trump vows military build-up, hammers nationalist themes

    By Emily Stephenson and Steve Holland NATIONAL HARBOR, Md./WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said he would make a massive budget request for one of the "greatest military buildups in American history" on Friday in a feisty, campaign-style speech extolling robust nationalism to eager conservative activists. Trump used remarks to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), an organization that gave him one of his first platforms in his improbable journey to the U.S. presidency, to defend his unabashed "America first" policies. Ahead of a nationally televised speech to Congress on Tuesday, Trump outlined plans for strengthening the U.S. military, already the world's most powerful fighting force, and other initiatives such as tax reform and regulatory rollback.

  • Verizon’s unlimited advertising is confusing everyong

    Verizon has rolled out a thorough ad campaign to go with its new unlimited data plan. As is normal these days, the ads focus on the pricing per line when you have four lines, which works out to $45 per line, plus taxes and fees. Unfortunately for sales reps working in Verzion's stores, wannabe customers don't read the fine print. Several Verizon retail sources have told BGR that customers are coming in "every hour" asking for "that $45 Unlimited plan," just to be told that actually, it's $80 plus taxes for the plan if there's just one of you. I'm sure Verizon is happy that customers are excited by the pricing of its unlimited plan, but people wanting one line for $45 per month seems to be causing serious problems for the retail outlets. One employee said that "if I have to explain the bad math to one more customer, I'm going to go [around the city] and write '$80' on every Verizon ad I can find." A poster on the Verizon subreddit echoed the comments: "I swear man, if another customer comes in and asks for our new $45 UDP, I'm gonna rip the posters off the walls. I'm not even cushioning my response to customers anymore. I just tell them it's gimmicky marketing math meant to get them in store. Anyone else having a lot of push back from frustrated customers on this phrasing?" Verizon is definitely not the first wireless network to focus on the per-line unlimited cost, rather than being more upfront about the pricing. Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T have all used per-line pricing in the past, despite the fact that most people don't actually have four lines per account. Still, it seems like people have been waiting so long for a Verizon unlimited plan that this ad campaign has sparked more interest than usual. […]

  • Donald Trump’s latest attack on the media was riddled with blatant contradictions

    President Donald Trump began his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday with a lengthy rant railing against what he dubbed the “fake news.” After weeks of bad headlines, Trump suggested the “dishonest media” falsified stories about issues in his administration by using made-up sources. “And I want you all to know that we are fighting the fake news. It’s fake! Phony! Fake!” Trump said. […]
