Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Back in March, we brought word -- or should that be Word? -- of GodTube, which was Dallas Theological Seminary student Chris Wyatt's answer to, yup, YouTube. But only now, as the Dallas-based site -- its HQ is off Skillman Street and Lovers Lane -- becomes one of the hottest religious sites in the universe and easily the largest Christian broadcaster on the Web, are others getting religion.

A couple of weeks back, MSNBC and ABC News saw the light, and yesterday, The Los Angeles Times picked up on the news that it has become "the first religious website to offer the hot-ticket social media trinity: user-generated video (à la YouTube), social networking (à la MySpace and Facebook) and live webcasting (à la Stickam.com)." And what's the most popular video on GodTube? Funny you should ask ... In related news, my 4-year-old can name all the bounty hunters in The Empire Strikes Back. --Robert Wilonsky

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.
