After one of its senior editors wrote and published a slanderous, steaming pile of horsecrap blaming paganism and Harry Potter books for the witch killing in Africa and Europe, people protested. Rather than apologize and retract the piece, all the editor would say was "sorry some people didn't agree".
As a result, Gus diZerega is talking about leaving beliefnet altogether. He'll still have his patheos column and personal site. I remember us discussing here when beliefnet was first sold to an evangelical company, and wondering if it would be its death knell. Looks like it is.
Has anyone actually visited it much lately? I saw someone started another belief-o-matic post recently, but it was the first I'd seen it mentioned here in a long time. It used to be the main source for the articles discussed in this section.Answer Question
