This week marked the release of our fourth annual Ten Today series at the Deseret News. I’ve been part of three of these projects, which explore how the Ten Commandments interact with modern life.
This year, we focused on adultery, releasing three articles on how cheating affects romantic, professional and other personal relationships. I was thrilled to write two of the pieces, including the main story on how the internet changed cheating.
Thou shalt not commit adultery. But what if thou doesn’t know what adultery is?
Do Americans still care if public figures have affairs?
These articles stretched my creative powers, allowing me to venture a bit outside the normal realm of the faith beat. They also helped me make Drudge Report for the first time, which is a weird (and exciting?) development.
Enjoy the series and have a great Easter weekend!
