• None of the Above: Political Implications - We continue our three-part miniseries examining the rapid rise in the number of Americans—now 20 percent—who describe themselves as religiously unaffiliated. The majority of these “nones,” as they are often called, are Democratic and politically liberal. Managing Editor Kim Lawton looks at how their growing numbers could affect elections and the role of religion in politics.
• Father Shay Cullen – Irish-born Catholic priest, Shay Cullen, arrived in the Philippines in 1972, three years after being ordained. As Fred de Sam Lazaro reports, Cullen has since then worked unstintingly to try to curtail the flourishing sex trafficking and prostitution there. Through his Preda Foundation he has sheltered and rehabilitated thousands of young women rescued from the sex trade.
