Kanye West once (almost) said, "They say you can blog about anything except for Jesus." He may have been talking about mainstream radio, but can the same be said about the online media conversation? Politics, sex, abortion, and all the usual third rails of polite conversation aren't just discussed, they're catalysts for some of the fiercest and most active debates across the blogosphere. But what about religious issues? Are they part of the online discussion? Or are they ghettoized into religion-centric "god-blogs" and their atheist equivalents?
