According to Tom Schaller's column ("Hate if you must, just don't act on it," March 5), any American who does not subscribe to Mr. Schaller's particular credo on the law and homosexuality is a hater. Such blanket condemnation and name-calling are more appropriate to a bigot than an academic. Mr. Schaller refuses to even consider that a good American can be motivated not by hate but by a moral and educated religious conscience. Mr. Schaller correctly asserts that "the deity that rules America is the almighty dollar," yet he then hypocritically condemns those few Americans who are willing to sacrifice monetary profits (and perhaps even risk legal punishment)

Cruising gets a bad rap. "It's boring. " "It's for people of a certain age. " "It's all about the food, and even that's not very good. " "Don't even get me started on the faux Broadway entertainment!" Those are the high seas haters. The travelers who are far too superior to settle for a superior cabin. But do they have a point? Google "cruise disasters," and you'll see they have more than one. Poor maintenance, fires, pollution, rogue staff, viral outbreaks - to name just a few recent highlights.

The first time I noticed Patriots Hater Nation rear its head, I was in an out-of-town sports bar in October. New England, 6-0 at the time, was playing against Miami in Week 7. The Dolphins were roadkill from the opening kickoff. The Patriots scored the first five times they had the ball. I didn't notice any obviously partisan Patriots or Dolphins fans in the place, but there was a palpable sense that the crowd was hostile toward New England. In my blog the next day, I wrote about this growing undercurrent of anti-Patriots sentiment - a neo-Damn Yankees mentality.

IT'S STILL dark in Manhattan, but on the morning of President Bill Clinton's televised testimony, Lucianne Goldberg is up and tapping away at her computer, sending e-mail, monitoring the flashing lights on her telephone console, drinking coffee and smoking the first of her Larks from an 18-carat Dunhill holder from Harrods."

SO WHAT DO you think? Albert Belle gets a standing O today? O yeah. They used to boo him at Camden Yards and call him bad names and sneer at his boorish behavior and his six suspensions, but today he's the angel hired to avenge many disappointing Orioles seasons, and everybody loves the guy. So, during the annual overwrought Opening Day opening ceremony, fans will stand a'tip-toe when his name is mentioned.I guess that's good. We want to get off on the right foot with this guy, right? We want Belle to feel warm and welcome.

IF YOUR household is like ours, it consists of one primary PC user and one primary PC hater (or at best a PC tolerator).If you're in the first category, this is a good time to shop for some gift software that might turn that PC hater into tolerator or even a user.If you're a hater or tolerator, consider a gift of software that will get that bum to do something useful with the PC for a change instead of flying that F-14 simulator and shouting "Kill" every time he fires a missile.I'm not talking about software that involves real work, but programs that help you do something useful around the home -- or at least look like you're doing something useful.

ARE AMERICANS happy? Are we a kinder, gentler nation? Or are many of us filled with hatred for each other? And if we are seething and gnashing our teeth, how many haters are there?These are questions you don't see answered by any polls. And there's a good reason for that. A pollster can't pick a name out of a phone book and say: "Good afternoon, I am from the Brainpicker Organization, and we are taking a poll. Do you have a seething hatred for anyone because of their race, religion or ethnic origins?"

WASHINGTON -- Anticipating four more years of scandal for the president, R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. sums up his scenario for Bill Clinton's second term in a word: "Rosy." Tyrrell, a leading Clinton hater, intends to keep on tormenting the man he calls Boy Clinton, which is also the title of his best-selling biography of the president."Clinton's been good to us," chortles Tyrrell, the editor of the American Spectator magazine, tickled by the thought of presidential embarrassments still to be ridiculed and indictments yet to be handed down.

Sen. Howard A. Denis knows how to carry a grudge, at least where the new stadium is concerned.The Montgomery County Republican has introduced a bill designed to place a special sales tax on owner Eli S. Jacobs, should he sell the Orioles for more than $100 million. He also threatened to filibuster a bill that merged the Baltimore Convention Center Authority with the Stadium Authority.When senators argued that the merger bill was simply a way to give the convention center the benefit of the stadium authority's management expertise, Mr. Denis belittled the stadium authority.

Craig Martin jogged across the finish line, having dressed to the nines for a seven-mile run. At Saturday's Baltimore Running Festival, he ran the last leg of the relay race wearing a navy blue herringbone suit, tattersall shirt, blue-and-pink bowtie and suede shoes. In the end, his footwear did him in. "I'm going to have some bad blisters down there," said Martin, 41, of Rodgers Forge. "But I might wear this outfit in the half-marathon next year. " On a cool but muggy day, most of the 27,000 entrants stuck to shorts and T-shirts.

Conservative Republicans in our nation's capital have managed to accomplish something they only dreamed of when tea partiers streamed into Congress at the start of 2011. They've basically shut down Congress. Their refusal to compromise is working just as they hoped: No jobs agenda. No budget. No grand bargain on the deficit. No background checks on guns. Nothing on climate change. No tax reform. No hike in the minimum wage. Nothing so far on immigration reform. It's as if an entire branch of the federal government -- the branch that's supposed to deal directly with the nation's problems, not just execute the law or interpret the law but make the law -- has gone out of business, leaving behind only a so-called "sequester" that's cutting deeper and deeper into education, infrastructure, programs for the nation's poor, and national defense.

You think he's on the cusp of greatness or you think he stinks. You point out that he has led the Ravens to the playoffs for three straight years. Or you point out that he keeps coming up small against the hated Pittsburgh Steelers. You love how he keeps his emotions in check, stays in that whole sleepy-eyed, Joe Cool persona no matter how tense the situation. Or you want to see more fire in his belly, more yelling and fist-pumping and getting in teammates' faces. This is what it's like for Joe Flacco these days.

A perpetually fact-challenged writer from Silver Spring is asserting that Obama's re-election would be a disaster ("Obama's re-election in 2012 would be a disaster," June 9). I got the same sort of mindless screed against President Obama from friends in a chain email last week. One of my challenges to these sort of folks is, who they would suggest as an alternative? Mitt Romney, whose health insurance plan in Massachusetts is basically Obamacare? And who wanted to go it alone invading Libya without NATO or the African Union - which would mean the U.S. pays for a third war when we can't afford the other two?

Washington MY OLD comrade-in-arms from Nixon speechwriting days (he did "pusillanimous pussyfooters" for Agnew alliteration, while I did "nattering nabobs of negativism") is running for President.To be more precise, Patrick J. Buchanan is using the Republican primary campaign in 1992 as the springboard for his long-range plan to wrest control of the party from hawkish neoconservatives and pragmatic moderates. Right from the start, he was a Goldwater "true believer," never happy with the necessary compromises of Nixon and Reagan.

A pair of classic - some might say unpleasant - winter weather conditions were expected to greet Marylanders this morning: frigid air and some snow. Forecasters predicted up to 2 inches of snow for the Baltimore region between 9 p.m. yesterday and early today, when temperatures are to reach the mid-20s. Warmer weather won't arrive until at least the middle of next week, when highs are predicted in the low 30s, according to the National Weather Service. The recent cold was blamed for the death yesterday of an 81-year-old Montgomery County woman who wandered from her home without a jacket.
