TWELVE POINTS of religious literacy

JOURNALISTS HAVE a special responsibility to report accurately, especially on sensitive issues. The Centre for Religious Literacy in World Affairs exists partly to ensure that this happens in the realm of world affairs journalism.

Religious literacy – which includes ideological literacy – is understanding that all people give meanings to their motivations. Lapido journalists aim to ‘dig deeper, go further, be fairer’ and to help mainstream journalists become religiously literate.
