Roundup: Churches in Japan, RE in Victorian primary schools, piety and obesity, and religion in the public sphere

Churches in Japan recover as ecumenical spirit shines

As recovery efforts in Japan proceed, the full impact of the earthquake and tsunami two weeks ago continues to be felt by some of the World Council of Churches member churches there.

Religious education in state primary schools discriminates against children whose parents opt out, according to a complaint to be laid today at the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission.

Piety linked with obesity

Why are church-going Americans more likely to be fat than atheists? And other questions from around the web.
