I followed the situation in Nigeria and Uganda closely when researching my book on Gene Robinson; the African activists have been incredibly courageous for so many years, but to have David's life end this way is about as horrible and tragic as it gets -- and American Christian fundamentalists (including the ones who defected from the Episcopal Church) have fueled this fire by throwing in their lot with the conservative African bishops. I am sick about it.

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
