Urban Tulsa sez Religion is Relevant

Urban Tulsa Weekly, the Oklahoma Gazette wannabe, has a cover story this week on "the Relevance of Religion" - timed to coincide with the opening of the movie the "Passion of the Christ". Unfortunately, the UT's reporter (Katharine Kelly) interviewed only Christian preachers to find out if religion is relevant. Predictably, they all thought religion was relevant. It would have been interesting to hear some diversity on the issue - there are Buddhists, Muslims, Jews, humanists and even real live atheists that might have opinions on the matter. But the UT might have had to reduce the amount of space given over to escort service ads to make room for these additional viewpoints.
