From Georgia- (came in at #23)
The legalization of same sex marriage topped the Religion Newswriters Association’s annual list of Top 10 Religion Stories of the Year.
Pope Francis was named Religion Newsmaker of the Year for the third year in a row. The Syrian immigrant crisis, the rise of anti-Muslim sentiment and fatal shootings at a South Carolina church also made the list of Top 10 stories.
The pope earned the Religion Newsmaker of the Year honor this time by enthralling masses and infuriating others with his appeals to the poor and marginalized, his denunciations of greed and environmental destruction and his charismatic presence while visiting the United States, Africa and Latin America.
