Belief Bytes: Wednesday’s Religion News Roundup

Charles Darwin’s birthday, more political conscience wrangling and Christian conservatives angry about the Obama administration’s requirement of employers to provide free birth control – all in Wednesday’s Religion News Service Religion Roundup.

Here’s an excerpt:

“As you’ve probably heard by now, Mitt Romney trounced Newt Gingrich and the rest of the GOP field in Florida.

Romney even edged Gingrich in the “evangelical/born again Christian” vote, 38 percent to 37.

I would have liked to see a breakdown of the Jewish vote after those Kosher robocalls.

Gingrich is still hoping for a Super Tuesday miracle, but as Romney pivots toward the general election, some politicos say his Mormon church’s racial history could pose a problem.

In other news, Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua of Philadelphia died, just a day after a judged had ruled him competent to testify in a landmark sexual abuse trial.

Sen. Marco Rubio brought a bill to the floor that would repeal health care mandates that he says violate religious freedom or conscience rights.”
