The Los Angeles City Council decided Friday that it's OK to name an intersection after an outspoken opponent of same-sex marriage, but it's wrong to pick up the tab for the ceremony. Behind that split decision was the city's newest councilman, Bill Rosendahl, who took office three weeks ago.

On a spur-of-the-moment visit several years ago to Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose in Long Beach, the Rev. Frederick K. C. Price had a vision.

Carrying a wooden shepherd's staff and followed by a band playing "It's Time to Rejoice," Pastor Fred Price led 8,100 congregants of his Crenshaw Christian Center into their new, $9-million church Sunday morning and exclaimed: "Hallelujah!
