The NYT has the first chapter of the book Unfriendly Fire. The chapter is about how gay Arabic specialists were dismissed from the military for violating the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. National Security or Religious Right? We know who won that fight.
The Atlantic has a short piece on Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams and how he is guiding the Church through the problems of recognizing homosexuals. The middle way, via media, seems to be a good reminder of what we need to be doing in religious discourse in general. The Archbishop’s passage on sex is an interesting read.
