Earlier this week we had Dallas Morning News editor Bob Mong telling Unfair Park that the paper was Rapturing the Religion section into the rest of the paper. Now, per the paper's Religion blog, comes the adios announcement that will appear in tomorrow's edition. The farewell, found after the jump, has something to do with life after death. Really, God bless 'em. --Robert Wilonsky
Beginning next Saturday, religion coverage, including our weekly Arts & Media reviews, will move to the Metro section. We hope this will increase visibility for our religion content, since Metro is consistently among the best-read sections of The Dallas Morning News.
We hope that you'll keep visiting this blog for the latest local news and to join in a community-wide conversation about faith, spirituality and values. Log onto the blog, and see other religion coverage, at DallasNews.com/Religion. Let us know what you think.
Our Religion writers, Jeffrey Weiss and Sam Hodges, with decades of reporting experience between them, will continue to devote their considerable talents to covering the faith beat. Look for more of their work to appear in Metro, on Page One, and elsewhere in the paper.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
