My family and I were truly offended by Steve Lopez's Nov. 23 column. Not only does he insult the Salvation Army, which is standing up for its principles while helping thousands of needy people, but he also insults all Christians by joking that Jesus Christ might have been gay. We are not involved with the Salvation Army in any way, but we believe it has the right to run its organization in a manner consistent with its Christian philosophy. We also feel it denigrates your newspaper to allow a columnist with a pro-gay agenda to spew such anti-Christian venom at its readers.

We live in a time of plague such as has never been visited on our nation. We can pretend it does not exist, or exists for others, and carry on as if we do not know. But we do. We know that AIDS is spread by several different methods. We also know that a cure is not in sight and may never be. What most people do not know is that the gay agenda is running rampant in the hierarchy of Ventura County government and organizations. It has even spread into the churches. We have the potential to slow down the AIDS epidemic by speaking out against a recent request by the Affirmative Action Commission that our county Board of Supervisors consider same-sex marriages as legal, something that will only cost taxpayers more of their hard-earned money.

WASHINGTON -- A children's book about two male penguins that hatch and parent a chick was pulled from library shelves in Loudoun County, Va., elementary schools this month after a parent complained that it promoted a gay agenda. The decision by Supt. Edgar B. Hatrick III led many parents and gay rights advocates to rush to the penguins' defense. Many say the school system should not have allowed one complaint to limit children's literary choices.

Rock music has frequently served as a vehicle for social issues, so Extra Fancy's mission to rock its way out of the closet and into the popular culture spotlight isn't surprising. Yet the rock arena has traditionally been a boys' club that excludes gays. Extra Fancy's strategy is to tackle straight-up rock 'n' roll with an aggressively gay agenda--as the Los Angeles quartet did to the best of its ability at Spaceland on Friday night.

God was in the eye of the beholder Thursday morning at the San Francisco Civic Center Plaza, where hundreds of spectators gathered to watch the California Supreme Court on a massive outdoor TV screen and wrangle over the sanctity of marriage. The occasion: Attorneys from both sides of the gay-marriage debate were arguing the merits -- or demerits -- of Proposition 8, the November ballot measure that banned same-sex marriage in California.

ACCRA, Ghana - On Thursday, my students and I visited a high school here in Ghana. When the headmistress told us that her students were "losing their culture" and "becoming too Western," we asked for an example. "Homosexuality," she said. "To us, it is an abomination. It comes from elsewhere. " That morning, coincidentally, President Obama was addressing the same issue at a news conference in Senegal. Asked about the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decisions in support of gay marriage, Obama acknowledged that Africans have "different customs" and "different traditions" about homosexuality.

Instead of celebrating National Coming Out Day for just one day as in years past, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Alliance at Cal State Northridge is hosting a week of events to educate students about homosexuality. The organization began the event Monday with a rally outside the university student union. Rain delayed the start of the program, organizers said, but several speakers and a gay stand-up comedian braved the weather to address a small audience.
