Vox Populi

From the moment Pope John Paul II shuffled off his mortal coil on April 2nd editors at the Daily allowed readers uncluttered thinking about the Catholic Church. To that end a local supervisor offered to supervise the selection, polls told us what changes would be popular, the executive editor felt her advice was needed in the form of an editorial and even a popular Jewish cartoonist knew best. It tended to be uniform in approach.

Today, following the naming of Cardinal Joseph Ratsinger as the next pope, the Daily suddenly finds 'mixed reaction'. Stop the presses--who knew anyone had other ideas!

So now, because other people's business is really all of our business, it seems reasonable to extend the offer for editorial guidance in all matters of religious thought. To the editors--Would you kindly tell us what other church leaders you support. Have at it:
  • Southern Baptist
  • National Baptist Convention
  • United Methodist Church
  • Presbyterian Church (USA)
  • Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
  • Evangelical Lutheran
  • Lutheran Church (Missouri Synod)
  • Congregational
  • Assemblies of God
  • African Methodist Episcopal
  • Episcopal
  • Hindu
  • Judaism (reformed)
  • Judaism (conservative)
  • Judaism (orthodox)
  • Shikh
  • Unitarian Universalist
  • Baha'i
  • Islam
  • Scientology
  • Eckankar
  • Wiccan/Pagan/Druid

I've been deeply concerned about the progressiveness of various Imams. Does the Daily have an opinion about this?
