Hong Kong's democracy movement is not Christian, but many key activists are.
Over the past five years, migrants and refugees have flowed into Europe in unprecedented numbers. Some are converting to Christianity.
Should truth in advertising law apply to religious claims? It's a live issue in Africa, where governments could learn from American experience.
How do you commemorate Christian suffering without reawakening ancient hatred?
India's constitution is firmly secular and democratic. Yet in recent years, Christians and Muslims have faced persecution.
Japanese Buddhist adherence is in sharp decline. At every stage of this story, the analogies to Western Catholics are obvious.

In 1944, an Anglican bishop consecrated a Chinese woman to the priesthood—30 years before women attained that rank in the Episcopal Church.
