I've been so desparately unlucky in love that it has thwarted my desire for motherhood. It's so frustrating.'The only other option would...

    ... The problem arises when you actually get down to the methods they advocate to ensure their view of equality and their methods of obtaining it. We are all individuals. We all live our lives based on our life experiences, economic status, education level, religious values, family values and the character traits we developed as a result. We all have differing opinions on different subjects. We all have the right, or should have; to live our lives as free thinking individuals, as long as our actions are legal, moral, non-perverse and contribute to society as a whole. We should have...

    Senate Democrats on Tuesday appeared headed toward a tactical victory over the hot-button issue of gay marriage. What seemed likely Monday — an up-or-down Senate vote on a proposed constitutional amendment to define marriage as only "the union of a man and a woman" — appeared very doubtful a day later as Republican and Democratic leaders were unable to agree on a procedure for a vote. Republican Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist has scheduled a Wednesday vote on cloture, a procedural move that would limit debate on the topic and allow the Senate to proceed to voting on the proposed...

    Actor Richard Gere has criticised American President George Bush's policy to combat AIDs during an international conference. He said the £100 billion to £150 billion spent on the Iraq campaign "probably could have eradicated this illness", the star of Pretty Woman and Chicago said. Supporters of Mr Bush's abstinence policy also came in for criticism for trying to tackle the spread of AIDs. Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni told delegates at the AIDs conference in Bangkok...

    BreakPoint with Charles Colson ^ | July 8, 2004 | Charles Colson
    In "De-Lovely," the new film about songwriter Cole Porter’s life, Porter tells his wife, Linda, about his homosexuality. Linda, who is the inspiration behind his genius, tells him that his music comes from his talent not from his destructive behavior. But she does beg Porter to give up his scandalous behavior so as “not to put us at jeopardy,” a promise Porter isn’t prepared to make. The prospect of a marriage where children, permanence, and fidelity are in doubt is supposed to make us pity Linda Porter, even if she was complicit in her own plight. After all, who would...

    Yoko Ono has joined the chorus in support of gay marriage by recording "Every Man Has a Man Who Loves Him," a gay-friendly version of a song she wrote nearly a quarter-century ago. The song "Every Man Has a Woman Who Loves Him," included on her last album with John Lennon before he was killed in 1980, was also retooled into another version: "Every Woman Has a Woman Who Loves Her." It's both a political statement and a tribute to an audience that has improbably made her a hit act in the dance clubs at age 71. "I should think...

    Forty-five seems like a little old for an adult to decide to grow up, but it's better than never. In an interview with ABC last week, fading pop star Madonna addressed the fact that she's been less than a role model in her career. She looks back on her provocative act over the last two decades and concedes it was meaningless. She told interviewer Cynthia McFadden: "I did spend at least a decade taking off my clothes, and being photographed; saying bad words on TV ... And I thought I was liberating mankind. But like I said, I wasn't really...

    Madonna is planning on changing her name to "Esther". She says that as she has gotten older and more mature, she thinks "Madonna" is no longer appropriate. Now that she's a mother, she teaches her children how to be responsible: they have to actually clean up their rooms and say "thank you" when someone compliments them and everything. And please, no teasing. Never mind that Esther was a beautiful virgin in The Bible. The most beautiful virgin given to the King (Esther 2:2-7). Yep. That describes her perfectly (Austin Powers voice here--"Raaaaiiiigggghhhtt...")

It was going to happen at some point with someone, it just so happened to be me....

    Seeing Rosie O’Donnell condemn President Bush just after she “married” her girlfriend, Kelli Carpenter, was bizarre in a tiresome sort of way. O’Donnell claimed, “We were inspired to come here by the sitting president and the vile and vicious and hateful comments he made.”If O’Donnell had any sense of humor or irony, she would look at herself and say, “Gee, for such a tolerant, open-minded person, I sure do condemn and vituperate an awful lot, especially on what should have been the happiest day of my life.”Maybe I’m some sort of pervert, but I don’t recall bearing anyone in the...

    Oscar-nominated actress Charlize Theron has spoken out in favor of gay marriage, branding those like Arnold Schwarzenegger who oppose it "prehistoric". The Monster star, who grew up around a number of gay and bisexual people in her native South Africa, is appalled that gay marriage is still up for debate in this day and age. Theron, currently dating Irish actor Stuart Townsend, says, "I just don't understand that at all. It's so unbelievably frustrating. "I mean, I am surrounded by so many beautiful relationships just in my life, I can't tell you - just so inspirational. And the fact that...

    David Gest, the estranged husband of Liza Minnelli, is reported to have got engaged to Diana Ross. The Daily Express says it understands the pair have become close despite Ross being a friend of Miss Minnelli's. The newspaper reports Gest and Ross are already planning a wedding as glamorous as his one with Minnelli. Ross apparently turned to Gest for comfort after being stopped for drink-driving in Tucson, Arizona, in 2002. She recently served two days in jail for the offence. Gest said recently that he would probably marry within two years and US Weekly magazine editor Janice Min said:...
