For the first time since 1986, Ramadan and the World Cup coincides. We're expecting the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby ruling this morning. Plus, which politicians are pushing faith?

    I am perfectly used to the press keeping tack of how often Easter coincides with Passover.

    Ramadan and the World Cup, though? Clearly we are reaching new heights and breadth in our coverage of the important religious events in our lives.

    Ramadan in conflict with a major world sports event is important news. Fasting all day, and then gorging sweets at night, is not good for game prep. Ramadan is particularly tricky since it bounces all over the common world calendar far more than Easter or Passover. … P.S. I am not a sports fan. Good to play, boring to watch.
