    ROME – The Vatican said Thursday it would take legal action against Benetton after the Italian fashion label used a photo purportedly showing Pope Benedict XVI kissing a leading imam in a publicity campaign. The Vatican "has instructed its lawyers, in Italy and abroad, to take appropriate action" to prevent the circulation of the image, including in the mass media, it said in a statement. The image offended "not only the dignity of the Pope and the Catholic Church, but also the sensibilities of believers," the statement added. The picture, used in the company's "Unhate" publicity campaign, showed the pope...

    A lesbian actress who starred in "The L-Word" said she kissed a girl — and got escorted off of a Southwest Airlines flight on Monday for doing it. Leisha Hailey took to Twitter to call for a boycott of the carrier after a flight attendant told them other passengers had complained after witnessing the affection. Her first tweet said: "I have been discriminated against." She later added, "Since when is showing affection to someone you love illegal?" Southwest Airlines Co. responded on its website that Hailey was approached "based solely on behavior and not gender." The airline's four-sentence response said...

However, the Kentucky Equality Federation says the men were only sitting on each other's laps, and they were discriminated against. Dozens from across the Commonwealth came to support the two gay men, who were allegedly thrown out of the...

    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia -- A Saudi court convicted a man and sentenced him to four months in prison and 90 lashes for kissing a woman in a mall, a government-owned daily reported Thursday. Saudi religious police arrested the man and two women after seeing them on mall cameras "engaging in immoral movements in front of other shoppers," the Al-Yom newspaper said. The man, who is in his 20s, was seen with a woman "sitting on one of the chairs, exchanging kisses and hugs." It was unclear what the other woman was doing. Neither the man nor the women were identified...

    A British couple has landed in Dubai jail just because they dared to exchange a kiss in a restaurant. Tourists Charlotte Lewis, 25, and marketing executive Ayman Najafi, 24, said that all he did was peck her on the cheek. But a local woman claimed she and her children saw them kissing on the lips and stroking each other's backs, and that's why she called cops. The stunned pair was arrested at packed Bob's Restaurant and accused of breaching the Muslim state's strict honour and modesty laws. They were each sentenced to a month in prison followed by deportation. The...

Cops have caught the notorious kissing bandit who caused a major security scare at Newark Airport Sunday when he strolled through a checkpoint the wrong way to give his girlfriend a smooch goodbye, sources said. Haisong Jiang, a 28-year-old Rutgers bio-medical research grad student, brought the busy airport to a standstill and sparked a weeklong manhunt, sources said. The stunning breach was missed by TSA guard Ruben Hernandez, who left his post, but was called a "model employee" by a union official. After scouring images of license plates at the airport parking lot and matching them to passenger lists,...

    They say the gesture allows a bug named Cytomegalovirus, which is dangerous in pregnancy, to be passed from man to woman to give her time to build up protection against it. The bug is found in saliva and normally causes no problems. But it can be extremely dangerous if caught while pregnant and can kill unborn babies or cause birth defects. Writing in the journal Medical Hypotheses, researcher Dr Colin Hendrie from the University of Leeds, said: "Female inoculation with a specific male's cytomegalovirus is most efficiently achieved through mouth-to-mouth contact and saliva exchange, particularly where the flow of saliva...

    There was kissing confusion as President Obama was greeted by France's first lady with an awkward handshake and later had to be coaxed by France's president to plant one on a co-ed admirer. The first clumsy moment came when Obama and First Lady Michelle were warmly greeted in Strasbourg by France's first couple, President Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. On a red carpet outside the Rohan Palace, Carla gave Michelle the traditional kiss-kiss on each check, while their spouses patted each other on the back. When they changed places, Sarkozy also gave Michelle a pair of cheek kisses -- even...

    Researchers are revealing hidden complexities behind the simple act of kissing, which relays powerful messages to your brain, body and partner When passion takes a grip, a kiss locks two humans together in an exchange of scents, tastes, textures, secrets and emotions. We kiss furtively, lasciviously, gently, shyly, hungrily and exuberantly. We kiss in broad daylight and in the dead of night. We give ceremonial kisses, affectionate kisses, Hollywood air kisses, kisses of death and, at least in fairytales, pecks that revive princesses. Lips may have evolved first for food and later applied themselves to speech, but in kissing they...

And now, what Hinkle knows from experience is actually backed up by science: Bad kissers have little chance of getting to second base. In a study published...

In a rare chat with a TOI reporter, Gupta, who travelled to Ajmer to take up his new assignment on Friday, said all he had done was go by the book and was convinced that the Gere-Shilpa ‘kiss’ was an indecent act. He said the Indian Penal Code did not clearly define obscenity and when he heard about Gere’s dance-kiss-spoof case, he consulted various books...

No matter who we talked to around town, the kissing bug was not very popular. Just what is a ‘kissing bug?' "They are blood parasites that must suck the blood of other animals in order to survive."

The image ran this week in The Strand, the Victoria College newspaper, in response to violent protests over other cartoons depicting the founder of Islam. Editor Aine O'Hare wrote that the paper wrestled with the decision but wanted to inspire discussion and critical thinking. The decision raised the ire of the undergraduate students' union, which wants the paper removed from stands.

When the Jack Armstrong and Joe Getty radio hosts made mention of the statistic, I didn’t believe it. So I did some research. In Dorothy C. Wertz’s, PhD, article (from GeneLetter, March 1st, 2000) “Kissing Cousins: The Genetic Fallout of Consanquinity”, the statistic was revealed that in the Middle East, especially Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Jordan, over half of all marriages are consanguineous, the common type being that of patrilateral first-cousins.
