The Guardian has launched a new blog entitled ‘Comment is free‘. It looks a bit more like a newspaper website than a blog though. That might be something to do with the fact that only the titles and descriptions are shown on the front page. But it’s good that the articles can be commented on in any case.
Meanwhile I noticed that of all the Times blogs the one by religion writer Ruth Gledhill is the most popular, if inbound links and ranking are anything to go by. I think this is largely down to my drawing. Oh, and the fact that it is a very good blog for those interested in religious matters.
On a further newspaper-related note I was interested to see that the Mail on Sunday had ‘The Gospel of Judas – Greatest archaological discovery ever to challenge 2000 years of Christian teaching’ (or somesuch) as its main banner on Sunday. I didn’t buy it of course, but did go to the website to see what kind of nonsense it was that they were spouting. But could I find any evidence of the article in question? No. Not a sausage. And still nothing 4 days later. By doing a Gospel of Judas search one can find a few other newspaper reports from around the globe, but nothing from the Mail on Sunday. I think their act needs to be got together.
