Friday Links Round Up: The Pope. Budgeting. Egypt.

The Pope. Budgeting. Egypt. Here's a little round up of links from around the web you may have missed this week:

  • A love story between sand and snow.
  • The pope weighs in on social networks.
  • When the murder of a 9-year-old girl is not national news.
  • For those trying to cook on a budget (i.e. me), Budget Bytes.
  • Events continue to escalate in Egypt.
  • Should Condoleeza Rice have been grilled about marriage? Good question.
  • Is Evangelical Christianity having what Cathleen Falsani calls, "a great gay awakening?" Join the conversation.

Have a lovely, safe weekend.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
