Paul Andersen, Enjoy! GLENDALE -- Looking back, Jon Bailey remembered the idea came to him last year, while conducting the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles in its series of "With a Mighty Voice" concerts at four Southern California churches. "I realized that I've done what I came to do," the soft-spoken Bailey said. It was time to go. After 14 years at the helm of what the L.A. Times has described as one of the last important links to a glorious tradition in music, Bailey decided to step down as artistic director.

Last week, the Episcopal Church moved closer to full acceptance of gay men and lesbians, taking steps toward recognizing same-sex marriage and gay bishops. However, some believe that this decision by the church is doing it more harm than good, as seen by the many churches that exist as part of the breakaway Anglican Church in North America after the 2003 election of Gene Robinson, the Episcopal Church?s first gay bishop. What do you think about this? Do you believe that in time, full acceptance of gay men and lesbians, same-sex marriage and the ordination of gay bishops will no longer be an issue for the church, or any church for that matter?

RANCHO DISTRICT - In a rodeo arena draped with dozens of state and national flags, one pattern eclipsed all the others at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center on Saturday -- a banner bearing red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple horizontal stripes. And beneath that rainbow flag, about 100 cowboys and cowgirls from throughout the United States and Canada competed in the 22nd annual Los Angeles Gay Rodeo. The idea for gay rodeos started in Reno, Nev., about 30 years ago, as safe-haven for homosexuals from ranching and rural backgrounds, who could not necessarily be open about their sexual orientation within their mainstream communities, International Gay Rodeo Assoc.

B ritish Prime Minister Tony Blair announced this week that the Catholic Church in England should not be able to opt out of new gay-rights laws. The Equality Act will force the church to end the practice of prohibiting gay couples from adopting children from Catholic adoption agencies. Some, like the Church of England, have sided with the church, arguing that there is nothing wrong with ensuring that children have a mother and a father. Catholic clergy has said such a law goes against Catholic doctrine, and forces what officials have said are successful Catholic adoption agencies to close.

Although Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has since vetoed it, lawmakers in that state recently approved a measure to allow business owners to refuse service to gays and other groups if it is perceived to violate the practice and observance of the business owner's religion. Q: Is it discriminatory against religious business owners to demand that they treat everyone equally? If business owners do discriminate based on their religious beliefs, should that discrimination be illegal?    The practice of treating every person with fairness and equity without offending their basic human dignity should be extended to business owners as well as to their patrons.

Fred Phelps, the founder the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan. who was known for his fire-and-brimstone anti-gay public protests - as many as 53,000 of them since 1991, according to church officials - died March 19 at the age of 84. Q: What do you think will be his legacy, or impact on religion in 21st century America? Fred Phelps was a man who had zero positive impact to the history of Christendom. His unpalatable brand of Christianity was valid fodder for critics of any organized religion.
