Rabbi Shmuley Boteach: Are Women Wired Sexually Like Men?

Uloop: Scalia's View on Gay Marriage Seeps Out in Vehement DOMA Dissent

While Scalia's point may be historically correct, it is in no way a justification for upholding DOMA. Indeed, even if DOMA's sole purpose was to remain true to history, its effect was to deprive gay couples of rights and privileges enjoyed by other legally married couples for no other reason than that they are gay.

Margaret Sullivan: A Grandmother on Sex, Contraception and Religious Freedom

In our plural society, Americans hold differing religious and moral views on these matters. I respect that and others' right to act on theirs and to preach them in churches and elsewhere. Nothing in current law prevents that.

Divina Infusino: America's Cup Needs to Set Sail for Real

Shasta Nelson, M.Div.: Urban Campfire: An Interview With Melody Biringer

One of the upcoming events where I'm speaking is in Seattle next month. I'm so looking forward to Urban Campfire, not just because it's in an airplane hangar, but because we get to roast marshmallows and sit around campfires with small groups of other women! Fun!

Al DeLuise: Ex Marks The Spot

My ex-wife Arlene and I have a very good relationship. It is a much better relationship than the one we would have had if we had actually stayed married. I hope my kids can appreciate that fact.

Ken Solin: Are You Typecasting Your Dates?

We continue typecasting by convincing ourselves that the problem isn't the type we're picking, but the people we're picking, which surely must qualify as an oxymoron. On some level we know we're automatically eliminating the vast majority of potential dates, but we stubbornly remain on our circular paths anyway.

Carolyn Bucior: Cool Your Jets, Gents: Women And Their Angry Men

Apparently U.S. women do not enjoy listening to their partners swear at people who can't parallel park, rant about energy bills, or grouse about the neighbor who mows his lawn at 9 a.m. on a Saturday.

Love Letters: Love Letters: London

I love you despite what people told me about you and your reputation for rainy weather and food. I love the certainty of a gentle rain in London and the matter of fact way everyone carries an umbrella and never puts away their boots for the season.

Tom Ammiano: Fruitvale Station and Trayvon Martin: We Have to Act

If the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Oscar Grant, the real-life protagonist of the new film Fruitvale Station, were isolated incidents, we could complain and then feel better. We could protest, and then move on. However, neither death represents a random miscarriage of justice.

David Abbitt: The Zimmerman Verdict Highlights America's Disgrace

Yes, it is an unfair system and minorities, those who have darker skin in particular, are treated inequitably by it. The injustices stretch far beyond the American courtroom, beyond a single verdict or a handful of verdicts. So, what are we going to do about it?

Rick Steves: Scotland Tour: Highland Games in the Village of Kenmore

One day a year, the Scottish village of Kenmore hosts its Highland Games festival -- and our tour group was lucky enough to be there,...

Linda Robertson: Everyone Has a Story...

When our four kids were growing up, I often reminded them that everyone has a story. I would tell them that no matter how grumpy, annoying or unkempt someone may be, there is always a story behind it. I reminded them to give people the benefit of the doubt.
