We often boast of the uniqueness of our system. We are not a totalitarian society that crushes the individual out of existence and tramples over his/her rights and freedoms. But there are questions we need to ask ourselves.

I know it is not an easy decision to cancel such a major event that impacts so many people, including myself. I am sure that all Nobel Peace Laureates scheduled to attend this summit would have loved to celebrate their achievements next week in South Africa.

Firstly, let me state that I'm TERRIFIED of Bees and Wasps. Whilst I recognize that this fear (phobia?) of mine is, to some degree, irrational, I've lived with it for forty odd years and gotten used to it. It is what it is, you know?

How should a teacher react if a student arrives to class wearing a t-shirt that shouts a repugnant racial slur in large, all capital letters across the chest? The answer ought to be clear.

An American Talks Turkey About the 'Intolerant' Chicken

Here in America, we have a knack for twisting around the meaning of a word and molding it into something we can get a bit more use out of. Americans are good at capitalizing on opportunities. In fact, we founded our country on that exact ideology.

The Difference Between Tolerance and Acceptance

Often, I see the words "acceptance" and "tolerance" being used interchangeably. The LGBT community often talks of building a tolerant society, but it is by no means enough.

Words hurt. They can stay with you for a lifetime. It's easy to tell victims to ignore their bullies, but any of us who have experienced this type of abuse know that it's much easier said than done.

Despite the perpetual obstacles that Pakistan encounters, the citizens of the nation find a way to stand back up.

I was walking down Broadway off of Houston Street and stopped into one of those deli grocery marts for a bottle of water. It was a tiny store, with two small aisles; every square inch utilized to the brim. It sold everything from breakfast sandwiches and bagels, to souvenir lighters and key chains.

Making love our priority doesn't mean we're always in spaced out hippie bliss while ignoring the conflicts around us, but it does mean we have shifted our focus. Love is the main emotional job of the heart and it rarely flows smoothly.

LGBT Elites Need to KISS

Brian Stone

I'll be called out as a hetero-normative cisgender supporter of the patriarchy for saying this, but it would be nice if we could use English to talk about our issues. Maybe it's a bit quaint to advocate simplicity, but it seems to me that the LGBT elite have created an entirely new language made up of six syllable words.

Ryan Chapin Mach

Mocking Christians for living in the past doesn't just alienate Christians; it alienates moderates, independents and future millennial voters. Trying to defame and decry social liberalism backfired for conservatives, so what's to stop the same tactics from backfiring on us?

Congregants who only gave help to other members were twice as likely to fully trust their fellow worshipers as participants who neither gave nor received help. Members who only received help were nearly three times as likely to have the same high level of trust. But it was the combination of both that made the biggest difference.

Mississippi, a state that tends to be at the bottom of every index of states -- where bottom is not good -- has passed a misnamed Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Like most government legislation, the name has nothing to do with its actual intent.
