Best Religious Blog

| | Comments (109)

Nominate your choice for Best Religious Blog. This is a return for a category that was dropped last year. Our objection was that most of the nominated bloggers were not primarily religious bloggers, but were usually mostly news and politics bloggers. We'll be watching the nomination pool this year to see if the religious blogger community is larger than it was two years ago.

Update (Oct. 17): Over the next 24 hours we will be closing nominations for most categories. This is a manual process so it takes a while to complete. As long as a category allows you to enter a comment (which is how you submit a nomination) nominations for that category are still open. When the option to leave a comment is not available you'll know nominations for that category are closed. The "+" rating of nominees will remain open throughout the awards.

To nominate a blog you need to leave a comment on this entry. Your comment should contain the name of the blog, the main URL for the blog, and (if possible) the URL for a RSS/Atom feed. For example:


Unless you login via one of the supported authentication services your comments will be moderated. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours to approve your comment, but all anonymous comments will eventually be posted. Only authenticated comments will be published immediately.

Rules And FAQ's

  • You can nominate yourself, don't be shy.
  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough...
  • Rather than add a "me too" nomination for a site you're encouraged to use the "+" icon to indicate your preference for nominees. The "+" ratings are one extra piece of information the finalist selection panel can use to help generate the finalist slates in each category.
  • The nomination period is scheduled to end on Wednesday, October 17, 2007.
  • Read The Nomination FAQ
  • Get technical help or ask questions at The Weblog Awards Forum
  • If you are linking to the contest consider using the nomination category archive, as it contains links to all of the nomination posts.

I would like to nominate
"The Wild Hunt - A Modern Pagan Perspective" written by Jason Pitzl-Waters

Site URL

What is "The Wild Hunt"?

In simple terms, this is a daily updated blog that concerns itself with news, opinions, and events dealing with (or of interest to) the modern Pagan and Heathen communities.

The ultimate goal, ideally, is to raise the standards of journalistic discourse regarding our faiths from within and without. Consider it an exercise in advocacy journalism, where a decidedly "pro-Paganism" view is exercised.

Glory to God for All Things

Well, I nominate it because -- I think that severing passion, aggression, and ignorance at their root by wielding the sharp sword of discriminating-awareness-wisdom is a really good thing. but then -- I'm Buddhist.

Jon Hurley said:

I came across this blog the other day, which struck me as very different from your average religious blog. I'm not sure if it's the best blog, but it deserves to be better known.

Talk Wisdom

This blog is dedicated to defending the tenets and values of Biblical Christian faith. We need Christian Culture Warriors who are willing to share our worldview and stand up for Jesus Christ in our present circumstances. He is our Savior, Lord, and King, and His love needs to be shed abroad in our hearts and in our world - now.

Ad Orientem said:

I respectfully nominate the blog "Glory to God for All Things." This is a very serious and often deeply spiritual religious blog by Fr. Stephan Freeman of the Orthodox Church.

Petey said:

One Cosmos is by far the best religious blog. Where else can you Circumnavelgaze the Whole Existentialada of Lumin Development with a Seer's Prattleogue of Joycey Jimgnostics, Verticalesthetics, Dilettantric Yoga, Laughty Revelations, Wide Angle Pneumography, Freevangelical Pundamentalism, Darwhiggian Evolution, Supernatural Election, and Buddhaflaw Correcting, all in a Reluxing Atmasphere of Omade Jehovial Witticisms?

I nominate WhoreChurch because he is a moderate's moderate and his view of faith is fair and in my eyes, the *real* truth.

He has 20/20 wisdom.

Don't let Bob's puns, Petey's crypticisms, and Cousin Dupree's PhiSlammaJams throw you. One Cosmos is the real deal, one of the deepest wells of humor, wit, and wisdom on the Web.

I would like to nominate two blogs for best religious blogs this year:

First, One Year Bible blog,

And second, Tim Challies blog

Both of these men blog about a true relationship with Christ using the Bible as their chief resource. Hard to beat, in my opinion.

RiverC said:

Definitely got to be One Cosmos.

Susan Smith Author Profile Page said:

Religion is man trying to reach God. Christianity is God reaching man. This blog is not "religious." However, it shows true LIFE in Jesus the Messiah. When we accept the way and understand the truth, then we have the LIFE.

Sallie said:

My blog is not solely religious but I have many elements of sharing my faith, to include a Thursday meme called Train Up A Child Thursday.

Please consider me for the nominations --

The commentaries come directly from the prayer room. The goal is to encourage. To spread the Word. Recognizing His Word, the Bible, as the final authority.

I would like to nominate Fr. Z's Blog:

What does the Prayer Really Say?

Fr. Zuhlsdorf's Blog is a must read!

Erudite, Charitable, Faithful - great Catholic perspective not found anywhere else. His readership, many of whom comment on this blog, further augment interesting points of view extending the topic at hand, providing much insight and illumination - simply a cornucopia of catechesis!

The Questing Parson

The Parson writes intriguing, heartfelt, moving tales of his experiences as a quirky, smart, sometimes smartalecky, elder Methodist pastor in Metro Atlanta. If you pass up checking out the parson you will have missed something worthwhile and entertaining.

And you youngsters out there may want to try my friend Rev. Frank at Irenic Thoughts.

Frank is a young Episcopal Priest who is doing good things, including actually thinking, way down on the Georgia coast. He also happens to be one of the finest photographers around.

Well, I did a search for Ruthlace and thought it had been nominated already, but I can't find it so:

Check out the wonderful posts at my mother's blog, Ruthlace.

Ruth is a retired Methodist pastor, a pastor's wife of 45 years, a mother (of seven including me!), a grandmother, a great-grandmother, the widow of a WWII era marine, who writes with insight and humor of her eight decades of life and her abiding faith. Read several posts, you'll be glad you did.

Whoops. Let's see if this works better

I would like to nominate the blog of the Jewish Funds for Justice,
Feed: is the online hub for netroots action and Jewish perspectives on contemporary issues of social and economic justice. Over a dozen contributors offer new ideas, provocative analysis and commentary on the challenges faced by today’s underdogs. Equal parts insight, outrage and humor, covers politics and policy, midrash and mishegas. is a project of the Jewish Funds for Justice, a public foundation committed to creating a just, fair, and compassionate America.

Christus Vincit - the BLOG!

Liturgy, Music, and FUN! Yeah, we do a bit of all three, all in good Catholic context.

Brian Michael Page
Nick Basehore
Jason Pennington
Your three snarky madman music ministers!

I also nominate:
We Belong to the Lord
The Cafeteria Is Closed
The Curt Jester
The Crescat
The New Liturgical Movement
What Does the Prayer REALLY Say?

My own blog (see previous comment) has a lengthy blogroll on its sidebar, but these are the ones I frequent most. I feel these blogs are well-deserving of a nomination.

I just found out that you can embed polls from the weblog awards on a homepage. Cool. Supporting us won’t get you a damn tote bag, but you will get regular beer blogging again. And we both know that you can’t get that on NPR." - Balloon Juice

"So I haven't been actively promoting my Weblog Award nomination. Sure, I mentioned it, and I put up a little button, but I haven't told you to vote, have I? I haven't told you to vote once every twenty-four hours, have I? I haven't told you to rise up, my minions, and smite the Internet with your collective force, have I? Have I? Well, now I have." - Looky, Daddy!
