How odd of Google / to choose the news

As part of my regular duties at this blog, I was scanning Google News the other day, when it struck me: You've got Top Stories, World, U.S., Business, Science and Technology, Sports, Entertainment, Health, and More Top Stories. What's missing? True, Google News highlights plenty of religion stories -- no complaints there -- but it does not separate them under their own category. Now the question I have for GetReligion readers is, Is that a good thing?

On the one hand, creating a Religion category would make sure that such stories are continuously called to people's attention. But separating religion stories out of the regular lineup would also likely lower some of those stories in said lineup and make them easier to gloss over for many readers.

Put another way, Should Google get Religion?
