Friday round-up on last day of summer

What's caught your eye this week? Here's a round-up of 5 blog posts that have particularly caught my attention. 
  • Religious beliefs should be respected when rights are not impeded is an article by Joshua Rozenburg, first  published in the Law Society Gazette and posted yesterday at the National Secular Society website. It's about the cases by 4 Christian claimants to be heard at the European Court of Human Rights next week. Rozenburg's article focuses on that of Lilian Ladele who he believes has a good chance of succeeding.
  •  If you don't know what all that is about then God and Politics in the UK gives a helpful summary of all 4 cases in his post today.
  • Simon Jenkins looks back 15 years to the death of Princess Diana and publishes his previously private record in a post called Come and Look: mourning Diana.
  • If all that's a bit heavy and you want something lighter (but beware the subversive message) you might enjoy Heaven (Tax) Haven on the Beaker Folk of Husborne Crawley blog.
  • And talking of heaven, on The Planetwise Blog, Dave Bookless writes about Songs and Hymns I hate to sing. This is about the bad theology of heaven found in many hymns, such as the last verse of 'How great Thou art'. 
Enjoy or ponder.
Or, if it's dry where you are, get outside.
Today in the UK it's the last day of the wettest summer for 100 years. Where I am the sun is shining. I'm off outside.
