TEXAS FAITH 35: Which religion stories merited more and better coverage?

Dallas Morning News,
Each week we will post a question to a panel of about two dozen clergy, laity and theologians, all of whom are based in Texas or are from Texas. They will chime in with their responses to the question of the week. And you, readers, will be able to respond to their answers through the comment box.
Each December, the Religion Newswriters Association asks members to choose the top 10 religion stories of the year. We decided to flip that around and ask you our esteemed Texas Faith panelists which religion stories, trends, developments did NOT get the media attention they deserved in 2010.
Here's what they our Texas Faith panelists said .
NITYANANDA CHANDRA DAS, minister of ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness), Dallas

Construction of the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium has begun this year in Mayapur, West Bengal, India. This amazing project bridges the gap between science and religion. The ancient Srimad Bhagavatam has given a detailed description of our solar system and the measurements of the orbits those planets in our solar system has been accurately accounted for. This project has been sponsored in large part by Alfred Ford, grandson of Henry Ford. It will be one of the largest temples in India, constructed with an advanced planetarium in its center.Hare Krishna :)
Your humble servant,
Nityananda Chandra Das
