PaganNewsBeagle Airy Academic Monday July 21


In this edition of the PaganNewsBeagle (Air - Monday) edition we have three stories from Creighton University including Voodoo in New Orleans, how online social media reflects (and affects) religious behavior, and a study that concludes religious teachings create an inability to tell fact from fiction in young children.

This paper discusses the syncretism of both Catholicism and Voodoo in New Orleans and explains how the adaptable Catholicism of New Orleans provides ample support for the growth rather than repression of Voodoo.

The rise of online social networking appears to represent a new challenge to religious individuals and institutions. In this paper, the author suggests that technology can enhance religious practices through the expansion and creation of religious communities.

Does strong religious belief create gullibility in children? Furthermore, do such beliefs predict psychopathology? This study explored how religious fundamentalism related to irrational beliefs and primitive defense mechanisms.
