Today's religion reads:

-- "The Archdiocese of Newark affirmed its decision to allow a priest accused of abusing a minor to remain in ministry, stressing that they are complying with authorities and prohibiting any interaction alone with children" (Catholic News Agency).

-- Now that the skeleton of Richard III has been discovered, should he get a Catholic burial? (via The Telegraph, h/t @roccopalmo).

-- What would St. Augustine, who wrote extensively about Just War Theory, have to say about the U.S. drone war? (Washington Post)

-- On drones, here's an earlier Religion & Ethics Newsweekly piece that examines the controversy.

-- Here's a fascinating photo narrative from Reuters: "Malajpur is a small but not ordinary village in central India. In fact it is probably the only village in India which has been hosting a ghost fair for the past several years. People from across the country come to this fair to get rid of 'evil spirits' that they claim to be possessed by."
