I used SimplePie to display Blogger atom feeds in Media Wiki (using the ancient 1.5.2 version). Here's an example:
To add another feed, all you need to do is edit a page and add this:
(Replacing chembiogrid's atom.xml with the alternative feed URL).
More info is here: http://simplepie.org/. It is as easy as advertised. See particularly here: http://simplepie.org/docs/plugins/mediawiki. Or just google "simplepie mediawiki".
Avoid Magpie RSS. I spent the whole afternoon trying to get it to work with Atom with no luck. SimplePie worked in about 5 minutes.

I'm trying to get simple pie to post just the titles and the dates of blogger.com blog posts on a different page. Still working on it. Do you already have code that does this?
I didn't do anything special to get it to work, just followed the instructions. You need to do two things:
1. Edit MediaWiki's LocalSettings.php to add the following near the bottom:
# Include the XFeeds reader for Magpierss.
2. Put XFeeds.php and simplepie_mediawiki.php in the extensions/ directory. Make sure they are readable by the Apache server (chmod 755 if using Unix/Linux).
The XFeed tags themselves can then be added to a mediawiki page like so:
Sorry, ignore 1/2 of the earlier comment. The XFeeds stuff was from my earlier fooling around with MagpieRSS. You just need simplepie_mediawiki.php, and the <feed/> tag is from SP, not XFeeds.
To show just the dates and titles, use
<feed showdesc="false" showdate="true">
