For someone who is intrigued by the influence that the interpretive lens of faith and religion and the impact that it has on culture, and vice versa, I found this story fascinating. Apparently a “kosher version of Facebook” called FaceGlat has launched in Israel – the target being a specific community of Orthodox Jews who might want to post information and pictures that would remain unaccessible by people of the opposite sex, and would ban advertisements that would be deemed objectionable by those in that community of faith.

CNN’s Belief Blog also has an interesting story about it, which refers to the story where Hilary Clinton and Audrey Tomason were erased from the Situation Room picture which included President Barack Obama and his national security team.
