A New American Rebellion

As the Supreme Court debated this week over the federal Defense of Marriage Act, Justice Antonin Scalia noted the number of states that are permitting gays and lesbians to marry. "There has been a sea change," he said, "between now and 1996." He was right about that, but it’s not just gay marriage.

Fashion Police: France Votes to Ban the Burqa

The French Senate voted 246-1 Tuesday to make it illegal for women to wear garments that cover their entire faces.

Whites Are 5 Times Richer Than Blacks, Study Finds

A study out of Brandeis University has determined that white Americans have roughly five times the wealth of black Americans of similar class, owing largely to greater economic opportunity.

How Rude: France Condemns the Veil

It isn’t an outright ban—yet—but the French parliament agreed unanimously (except for 30 protesters who walked out) to condemn the face veil worn by some Muslim women as “an affront to the nation’s values of dignity and equality.”

Cristina Nehring on the New Erotic Fundamentalism

Are Americans sacrificing the possibility of a more tolerant humanity for a suffocating guarantee of fidelity, a frigid prospect that seemingly unites the commissars of the politically correct left as much as it does the thought police of the puritanical right?

Racial Row in Freemasonry

Not only are the Freemasons a bit weird, some are also a bit racist. The admittance of Victor Marshall, a 26-year-old African American, to a chapter in Atlanta last year caused many Georgian Freemasons to seek to revoke the charter of Marshall’s chapter, sparking a legal battle over equality in this new “post-racial” world.

Equality, by the Numbers

Let me begin by raising a glass of champagne to the official closing of the math gap. It turns out that girls do not lack the math gene. Nor are they math-phobic.
