THE OTHER night while eating dinner and watching the news, I heard the story of the Maude Wilkins Elementary School and the tempest in a teacup over dressing up for Women's History month. I laughed and said, "I'm sure if you turn to Fox News, they're screaming homosexual agenda. " You can imagine my amusement when I read the article where the woman quoted ties the incident to Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network's Day of Silence, and accuses the school of pushing children into an alternative lifestyle.

City Councilman Jack Kelly yesterday lost his defamation suit against an 80-year-old Lawncrest man who accused him of being a pawn of "the homosexual agenda," and Paul D. Corbett claimed a victory for free speech. "Even if in anger I said something incorrect, he's a public figure," Corbett said after the verdict. The jury of eight women and four men, after four hours of deliberations, found that Corbett hurt Kelly's reputation with false statements bashing the 71-year-old councilman for "contributing to the delinquency of minors.

The first day of trial testimony in City Councilman Jack Kelly's defamation case against an octogenarian pamphleteer who in 2007 branded Kelly a supporter of the "homosexual agenda which would promote sodomy to our youth" reached rare heights of courtroom theater yesterday. In the morning, Common Pleas Court Judge Albert J. Snite Jr. threatened to arrest the defense attorney, who promptly called for a mistrial. In the afternoon, the same defense attorney caused another brouhaha when he suggested that a gay former city solicitor's legal opinion to end a city lease with the local Boy Scouts could have been influenced by his sexual orientation.

Are political fliers, distributed just before an election, that accuse a city councilman of voting "with the homosexual lobby" to "promote sodomy to our youth," a statement of fact or opinion? That's a question a Common Pleas Court jury will begin considering this morning when Councilman Jack Kelly's defamation lawsuit against Paul Corbett gets under way. Corbett, 80, was incensed after Kelly and 15 other Council members voted in May 2007 to force the local Boy Scouts chapter to pay $200,000 per year or move off city-owned property it had rented for $1 per year since 1928.

City Councilman Jack Kelly is suing for defamation a man who circulated fliers before a 2007 election, accusing him of "voting with the homosexual lobby" to "promote sodomy to our youth. " But the first day of the trial was overwhelmed at the start and finish by what Common Pleas Judge Albert Snite Jr. had to say about defense attorney C. Scott Shields, who represents Paul Corbett in the case. At one point, it looked like Shields might be hauled off in handcuffs. Snite interrupted Shields' opening argument when the attorney started quoting from the state constitution's free-speech provision.

In a watershed decision yesterday that could transform how the government regulates morality, the Supreme Court struck down state sodomy laws as demeaning to homosexuals and said the government had no authority to regulate the sexual behavior of "consenting adults acting in private. " In an angry dissent delivered from the bench, Justice Antonin Scalia said the majority opinion "effectively decrees the end of all morals legislation" and threatens a "massive disruption" of the social order.

Considering political perspectives this election year, you would do well to remember that Gertrude Stein line: "A rose is a rose is a rose. " Except what I'm talking about don't smell so good. In fact, it stinks. I'm not talking about flowers, of course. I'm talking about political personalities who may be trying to sway you to vote for a certain candidate or who are trying to sell you a particular package of political goods. Despite how some of these smooth talkers dress up their language, a lot of prickly thorns are still on them.

The end of the U.S. Supreme Court's term brought a flurry of noteworthy rulings involving such important issues as school vouchers and the execution of retarded criminals. These cases have dramatically changed the political landscape. But a lawsuit filed in New Jersey overshadows them, at least in this state. The litigation will, without the intervention of a constitutional amendment, establish a constitutional and moral catastrophe - homosexual marriage. Seven same-sex couples have sued for the right to marry.

THREE of the most beautiful words in the English language are "We the people. " New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie knows that. Last week, he promised to veto any bill legalizing gay marriage. Responding to the somewhat hysterical criticism that he usually gets, like a Democratic assemblyman's comment comparing the governor to his segregationist brethren of the Jim Crow South, Christie said that some Democrats in Trenton were using the issue as a "political football. " With all due respect to the governor, that's hardly a revelation.

When Swarthmore College president Alfred Bloom learned last autumn that alumnus James Hormel, a member of the board of managers, had been tapped by President Clinton to become the next ambassador to Luxembourg, he assumed that the nomination would probably sail through the U.S. Senate. Wrong. Hormel, 65, the heir to the meatpacking fortune, seemed to have stellar credentials. He has served as a backup representative to the U.N. General Assembly and a delegate to the U.N. Human Rights Commission and is a former law school dean at the University of Chicago.

The state House of Representatives churns out uncontroversial resolutions every week to commemorate the dead, honor people's achievements, raise awareness of health issues, and recognize things important to Pennsylvania, such as pretzels. So it took many people by surprise when a resolution designating October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month was derailed Wednesday by Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R., Butler), who claimed it "had a homosexual agenda. " The Western Pennsylvania legislator said he detected that agenda in this phrase: "one in six women and one in 33 men have experienced an attempted or completed rape.
