I think we need to understand that beneath the different skin colors, hair colors, languages, body sizes, shapes and our thoughts, we are all made the same way. Why, as humans, do we put a label on someone and assume that the person we are labeling is just that?

The Millers' alleged slaying of two Las Vegas officers and a bystander will be treated as murder, without the hate attachment. This laxity is just enough space for the Millers of America to run loose.

Padraig McCoid

Gay people in the U.S. can find comfort in knowing we are fast approaching equal rights in our country. The danger that international gay people face, however, is that our anti-gay activist losers are providing the rhetorical fuel to ignite more animus toward the LGBT community.

Race has and in my opinion will always be a touchy and emotional topic for people in this country. My question is, how do we overcome that? How do we live in a country where we don't waste time having weeklong discussions on whether Santa is black or white?

We Canadians pride ourselves on not being as easily wound up as our big brother to the South. So maybe it's a Canadian thing -- writing people off. Maybe the pejorative, hipster phrase "whatever" was originally "whatever eh"?

If there were as many Christians in this world as there are people who call themselves Christian, it would be a different world, indeed. But the world is filled with rich men trying to drag their affluence through the eyes of needles, and innocent children dying of starvation.

Among the fictional characters we might want to avoid (if they somehow came to life) are murderers, liars, hypocrites, busybodies, racists, male chauvinists, militaristic men, rotten bosses, the money-obsessed and people who are just plain boring.

There are a lot of other moments in U.S. history (immigration, sexism, ableism, classism, etc.) that I could have added to this history, but there was not enough room to include all the things that have happened (and are happening) in this country because someone believes God says so.
