Religious "Headlines" Throughout the World

The International Center for Law and Religion Studies (ICLRS) provides an amazing service on a daily basis.  Donlu Thayer, the managing editor for print and electronic publications (who is also a remarkable and delightful woman), creates this list, which is called Headlines.

Whether you are interested in glancing at the headlines, want to follow a particular issue throughout the world or want to follow what is happening in just one country, this is the place to start. Headlines provides headlines plus the link to the source.

Below is an example of what is available. The information below was taken from the December 8, 2013 Headlines. (You can find an entire Headlines at http://www.iclrs.org/common/headline.php?contentId=1674.)
