When Mar­riage Between Gays Was By Rite RITE AND REASON: A Kiev art muse­um con­tains a curi­ous icon from St Cather­ine’s monastery on Mount Sinai. It shows two robed Chris­t­ian saints.

Georgia Curriculum Review

A teacher’s review of Geor­gia’s new high school his­to­ry cur­ricu­lum: Dumb­ing down our past does­n’t serve our future The Civ­il War is just one of the top­ics that have been removed from the US his­to­ry course, which focus­es on 1876 to the present.
