Religious Freedom

It's the first day of classes, so little time to sit, think, and write.  But there's a new report out by the fine folks at Pew on religious freedom:
Rising Restrictions on Religion, a recent report by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion and Public Life, finds that restrictions on religious beliefs and practices rose between mid-2006 and mid-2009 in 23 of the world’s 198 countries (12%), decreased in 12 countries (6%) and remained essentially unchanged in 163 countries (82%).
