The article presents religious news briefs as of September 30, 2010. Actress Patricia Neal died on August 8, 2010 and her obituary which appeared in the "New York Times" failed to mention her conversion to Catholicism and pro-life activism. The British Columbia Supreme Court will consider the legality of the province's laws after two members of a Mormon community were charged with polygamy. A list of the 50 most influential rabbis in the U.S. is questioned with the continued exclusion of Judaism's top scholar Rabbi Jacob Neusner from the list since 2007.
