Thanks to the Sun's recent mischaracterization of the Maryland Catholic bishops' statement on religious freedom ("Bishops assail same-sex marriage," Nov. 10), many readers responded to one element - only five paragraphs long - of a 12-page document well worth reading carefully. The statement, "The Most Sacred of All Property: Religious Freedom and the People of Maryland," cites several examples of the problems that arise when government policies conflict with the deeply held moral and religious beliefs of individual citizens and religious institutions.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Ravens were involved in a statement game on Sunday, and they sent the wrong message. If they wanted to prove they were a contending team after missing the playoffs last season for the first time since 2007, they failed. In fact, some of the same things that kept them from the playoffs in 2013 showed up again in a 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts before a crowd of 65,258 at Lucas Oil Stadium. It's not like Indianapolis had been dominant this seaosn.

"I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to Peter Angelos and Andy MacPhail for the opportunity to serve as manager for the Baltimore Orioles for the past three years. The results on the field were not what any of us would have hoped for, and I understand that the organization felt the time was right to move in a different direction. While I am disappointed at the outcome, I feel it was a privilege to wear the Orioles uniform each day and I thank all the fans for their tremendous support.

COLLEGE PARK - Randy Edsall's goal this week was to keep the pre-game preparation as routine as possible. The Maryland football coach told his team that Ohio State is just another opponent, that the Buckeyes have good players but the Terps do too. Nothing changed about Maryland's practice schedule. Edsall even turned down numerous interview requests because he did not want his players to see him doing anything different than he would during a normal week. But Edsall, his players and the rest of the program recognize the significance of Saturday's game against No. 20 Ohio State.

Lefty Tsuyoshi Wada had season-ending elbow-ligament (Tommy John) surgery Friday in California. Dr. Lewis Yocum, who removed bone spurs from Wada's elbow in 2007, performed Friday's surgery. The Orioles issued the following statement from Wada: “The procedure went as planned and Dr. Yocum felt good about how it went.

In case you missed it yesterday, the campaign of Newt Gingrich sent out what's likely the most epic political press statement of all time . Gingrich press secretary Rick Tyler, clearly frustrated with media criticism of his candidate, sent to the Huffington Post the following statement replete with medieval imagery of hellfire and war.  Here it is, in its entirety:  “The literati sent out their minions to do their bidding,” Tyler...

Miguel Gonzalez isn't going to say it. In fact, the Orioles right-hander was asked point blank Monday night whether he felt he is making a statement that he should be one of the club's starters in the postseason. And he called an audible, talking about well things are going in general. “I got to keep doing what I've been doing and stay focused,” Gonzalez said. “And we're in a good spot right now. Pretty happy about it. We are doing good.” OK, so he isn't addressing it -- smartly, on his part, by the way -- so we'll say it for him. With his tremendous run in his last 10 starts -- he has allowed two runs or fewer in nine of them -- Gonzalez has put himself squarely on the postseason starter map. He's probably still behind Chris Tillman, which is only fair.

Sometimes, you come across a quote or phrase that jolts your sensibilities.  The words can be as deep and thought provoking as those supplied by Golda Meir below, or as mind numbingly ludicrous as those uttered by the Dartmouth College protesters of last spring, also below.  Regarding the former, your response might be an immediate "Yep.

Robin's genius for comedic improvisation, which quickly surfaced in his studies at Juilliard, was matched by his deep understanding of the actor's art and how to touch his audience in meaningful ways.

Sen. John McCain of Arizona, a classmate of Charles R. Larson at the U.S. Naval Academy, says the four-star admiral and former academy superintendent was a "dear friend" and "great man" who, like McCain's father and grandfather, cast a large shadow. Admiral Larson, 77, died early Saturday at his home in Annapolis after a long illness. "As the son and grandson of four-star admirals, I have long been accustomed to living in the large shadows cast by great men," McCain said in a statement Sunday afternoon.

During a June meeting of leaders from Baltimore's law enforcement and judicial circles, city police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts gave a report on crime that included a surprising statistic. Half of all cars stolen in Baltimore had their keys left in the ignition, he said. The comments were made as he informed officials that car thefts had increased 4 percent compared with the same period last year. This month, he repeated the same "50 percent" estimate to the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council, which includes local judges, prison officials, federal and state prosecutors.

I can't wait to hear the full explanation from NBC as to why it pulled correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin from Gaza on the eve of the Israeli invasion today. The act came after the former Al Jazeera reporter had done two weeks of superb on-the-ground reporting from Gaza. I wrote about that reporting here and here . Mohyeldin was replaced by Richard Engel, the network's chief foreign correspondent. The only explanation the network provided was that the move was made for "security concerns," according to Glenn Greenwald, who reported the story here . As much contempt as I have for the lack of journalistic backbone at NBC News management, I am not going to jump to conclusions as to why the move was made.

The founder of a Baltimore County insurance company was arrested Wednesday in connection with an alleged scheme to make it appear that the firm - now being liquidated by a Delaware court - had millions of dollars in cash it did not actually possess. Jeffrey Cohen, 39, former CEO of nightclub and bar insurer Indemnity Insurance Corp., was indicted by a federal grand jury Tuesday on charges of making false statements to an insurance regulator. The indictment was unsealed Wednesday as government agents raided his house in Reisterstown.
