Rev. Gregory Perkins' letter "Marriage is ordained by God" (Feb. 22) states that Christians "do not hate men and women caught up in the homosexual lifestyle " (italics mine).  Though I am heterosexual, I presume that Rev. Perkins does not consider me a Christian because I do not accept some of the doctrines of the so-called "Christian" right wing -- including restricting the rights of those who want to spend their lives in a monogamous relationships. Medical science has proven that some people are born homosexual, and that homosexuality is not a "lifestyle" choice.

In the switch to "smart meters," BGE is inconveniencing its customers for something they probably don't even want and is somewhat suspect, anyway: Just imagine the information BGE will be able to glean from real-time utility usage data available with smart meters. It will likely be possible for the company to not only deduce the number of people living in your house, but also when they go to work, return home, eat, watch TV, go to bed and so on, because all of these activities involve turning on and off appliances of various kinds and using more or less electricity.

Atholton did its part when it beat Mount Hebron last week to finish the regular season with a 17-2 mark in Howard County. All the No. 10 Raiders (18-3) needed was for Centennial to upset frontrunner Oakland Mills to be declared county champions. "I remember walking to the locker room after we won and asking coach [Jared Albert] what happened in that game," senior forward and captain Michael Bernetti said. At the time, that game was only in the third quarter, so the waiting game was on. Text messages provided updates and teammates were sharing what they could find out. Finally, the news arrived: Centennial upset Oakland Mills in overtime.

BOSTON - You have to say that the drug companies asked for it. I mean really asked for it. Remember when Viagra first came on the market? The spokesman was Bob Dole, veteran, Senate leader and prostate cancer survivor, who urged other men to talk to their doctors about erectile dysfunction. The slogan was: Courage. Fast-forward through the millennium. The spokesman now is a hunky 40-something guy and a slogan that says: "Keep that spark alive." The message today is less about disease and more about delight.

IF INVESTORS learned anything in the stock market swoon, it's that choosing the right mix of stocks, bonds and mutual funds is a lot more complicated than the bull market of the late 1990s had them believing. It's not just a matter of choosing the hot stock or fund, but developing a diversified portfolio based on when investors will need the money and how much risk they can stomach. For investors overwhelmed by these decisions, there's a simple solution: a lifestyle fund. Basically, investors choose a single lifestyle fund based on their tolerance for risk and the amount of time they have to invest.

Now that it's over, the thing I remember most about January is this: It went by in a blur.There were so many things, great and small, in January competing for our attention. The terrible events in Somalia, Bosnia and Iraq. The crime rate here at home. The ever-ballooning deficit. The deaths of Thurgood Marshall and of Audrey Hepburn, Dizzy Gillespie, Rudolph Nureyev. Keeping up with the Clinton Cabinet. The Zoe problem. The Hillary factor. Inaugural balls. Christmas bills.And, of course, the unthinkable: the demise of the Sears catalog.

BOSTON - During the Vietnam War there was a phrase that came to symbolize the entire misbegotten adventure: "It became necessary to destroy the village in order to save it." It was said at first with sincerity, then repeated with irony, and finally with despair. I have heard similar thoughts in the weeks since Texas authorities invaded a ranch in Eldorado and rounded up hundreds of children from the polygamous sect of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Did they traumatize the children in order to protect them?

Garnett Gilbert Smith lived well: he owned a fleet of luxury cars, stayed at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills and dropped hundreds of thousands of dollars at Gucci, Cartier and Louis Vuitton. He also worked hard, federal authorities say, shipping a metric ton of cocaine from California to Baltimore between 2010 and 2011, clearing $10,000 profit on each kilogram. In all, prosecutors wrote in court documents, he raked in $10 million. Smith pleaded guilty to a cocaine charge in October, but authorities also believe he trafficked heroin.

When Dan and Margo Duesterhaus moved into their Ellicott City home 12 years ago, the solar power movement was still more concept than reality. But the couple had always been environmentally conscious, and they put their ideals into action. Starting in 2007, the couple had 32 solar panels installed on three sections of the roof, two additional panels for their solar water heater and another smaller panel for a solar attic fan. They added solar daylight tubes at three locations on the main floor of their rancher, two small heat pumps and large windows with extensive insulation.

Every hardworking taxpayer should ponder this: The IRS is only one of over 1,300 agencies within the federal government ("IRS manager claims he started extra scrutiny," June 10). If the IRS could spend over $50 million on "conferences" between 2010 and 2012, is it a stretch to think that this type of waste is going on within hundreds other agencies? Every time I read about these overpaid bureaucrats flushing away our tax dollars on garbage such as junkets to exotic and expensive locales which are disguised as "conferences, training or employee morale boosters," I just want to get in the faces of these morons.

In regard to Tavon White's lifestyle ("Alleged gang leader in poor jail conditions, his lawyer says," May 15), his attorney says Mr. White can confer with him for only an hour and only through a glass screen. In addition to that unspeakable atrocity, he only has in his possession a jump suit, one pair of underwear, shower sandals and a sheet for his bed. Aw, my heart bleeds for the worthless thug.

The Harford Mall is looking to reinvent itself as a "lifestyle center," extending toward U.S. 1 and pursuing a more upscale stable of retailers, according to Bel Air and county officials. The mall, at Bel Air Road and Route 24, is the only enclosed shopping area in the county and has faced competition in recent years as upscale retail development has crept down Route 24. According to those familiar with the plans, the goal would be to transform at least part of the mall into what's being called a lifestyle center, bringing in a higher-end clientele with shop entrances accessible from the outside.

As one who has been following the pros and cons of the gay marriage debate, one fact has gone unmentioned. There is no way to convince a person to be or not be homosexual; it is not a choice but the way one is born. For religious people, this means that gays and lesbians have been created by God to be who and what they are. Medical research has shown that gay people's brains are actually "wired" differently than those of heterosexuals. Why would anyone "chose" to be homosexual knowing that it would mean being shunned by a large segment of the population out of ignorance or hate?

Taylor DesRosiers was a competitive swimmer throughout her life, always fit. But in her first year of medical school, she realized that had changed — she was at an unhealthy weight. The rigors of her education had piled on top of two rough years in which she went through a broken-off engagement and supporting her mother through a health scare. During a course on obesity, she realized, according to body mass index charts, she was technically obese herself. "It just kind of hit me: I need to make a large change," DesRosiers said.
