NORFOLK, Va. – News Corp. has sold Beliefnet, a spirituality website, to an investment group.

Terms of the acquisition, which was announced Friday, weren't disclosed.

The buyer, BN Media, is an investment firm behind two organizations — Affinity4 and Cross Bridge — focused on nonprofits and charities.

The companies said the acquisition will build on existing relationships. Affinity4 sells telephone, Internet and other services and donates part of the proceeds to charities and ministries. Cross Bridge provides spirituality-based video and other kinds of programming.

The deal will help Beliefnet "continue its mission to be the leading provider of inspiration and faith-based online content," Beth-Ann Eason, Beliefnet's general manager, said in a statement.

We have been through stuff before, and I know that change and uncertainty is never easy, but I also know that we have a great, resiliant group of posters here, so I would only ask that you give this a chance and have a little faith.
