Killing the Buddha Has Died

| 1/9/2008 9:39:03 AM

After seven years of existence, the irreverent spirituality website Killing the Buddha has ceased to be. Founded by Harper’s Magazine contributing editor Jeff Sharlet, Peter Manseau, and Jeremy Brothers, the website won an Utne Independent Press Award in 2002 for Online Cultural Coverage. Described as a “religion magazine for people made anxious by churches,” Killing the Buddha published funny and highly personal essays including, “A Slut for Faith” “Gods and Guitars” and “Pushing Monks” (written about by Nick Rose for in 2006 ). The website’s independent voices and perspectives, not attached to any religion or faith, undoubtedly will be missed.
