Walt Hawkins

On October 11, the LGBT community celebrates National Coming Out Day and this year we have one more newly out person with whom to celebrate--Puerto Rican boxer Orlando Cruz.

It is so hard to believe that people are still trying to use the purported link between pedophilia and homosexuality. The old, tired argument that pedophilia is linked with homosexuality is wrong on many levels.

To help those people who disagree with same-sex marriage and homosexuality solely for religious reasons, I have compiled a list of figures, both past and present, who are either taught or revered in American history but who are "sinful," according to the Bible.

As much as I, too, applaud John for writing the letter, and as much as I found it pitch-perfect in its tenor and its content, I just couldn't swallow 'brave.'

Mark Olmsted

I mean, really, if Scientology can call itself a Church, why can't we? I don't know about you, but I could use some tax-exempt status when I bang the old headboard. And we could finally use protections afforded freedom of religion by the Constitution.

There are lots of struggles inside Arab terrain today -- about human rights, about the role of women, about gay people, religion, education, about modernity in general -- but inclusive language that buttresses society's evolution and advancement seems important.

I don't think your pal Duke is about to cry any time soon Chester, and he'll probably keep swatting you every time you do. But don't let that stop you, whenever you got a real beauty of a lump going in your throat, from blubbering away.

Violence against local gay men and lesbians continues unchecked, with three incidents in as many weeks recently, including a double murder. And why is this so? Tradition? Christ? A misplaced morality that is in fact immoral?
