    Religion: How to talk about it properly
    Religion, like politics, is something polite people aren't supposed to talk about, particularly at the dinner table. And there's sound reasoning for this: Passions can flame, voices spike, dissent can explode into disputes long-festering. But if one...

    Justice Elena Kagan's wonderful dissent in Greece v. Galloway

    Mary Zimmerman, theater director
    When it comes to creating stories on the stage, Mary Zimmerman is a master. But the Tony Award-winning director is very specific about the tales she chooses to tell. "One thing I really like is to try to stage the impossible," says Zimmerman, 53,...

    The 5 most beguiling-weird-curious works at LACMA's new Korean show

  • Indiana law allows Satanists to perform marriages, but not Buddhists

    Indiana law allows Satanists to perform marriages, but not Buddhists
    An Indiana law is "irrational" and "absurd" for allowing Satanists to perform legal marriages while making it a crime for Buddhists and humanists to do the same, a federal appeals court said this week. It's been a rough few months for state marriage...
  • In Theory: Shunning the idea of an atheist-in-law

    A section of a recent Pew Center Research poll on political polarization and family life asked Americans how they would react if a member of their immediate family told them they were going to marry one of the following: an atheist, a gun owner, someone...

     LACMA's lovely show on Korea in a time of transformation
    How remarkable that a simple piece of undecorated, fired white clay can be a riveting work of art. Yet there it is, beckoning quietly from a vitrine near the start of "Treasures From Korea: Arts and Culture of the Joseon Dynasty, 1392-1910." The large...
  • Deadly attack raises concern about growth of 'evil cults' in China

    Wu Shuoyan was waiting for her husband and their 7-year-old son at a McDonald's when she posted a note on a social media site: "I met some crazy people." Twenty minutes later, she lay dead on the floor, beaten to death with a metal pole. Authorities say...

    Bruce Wagner continues his Hollywood topography in 'Maps to the Stars'
    He stands in black boots and black coat, phone at his ear, as if conspiring with a distant demon. He beckons in a rooftop cafe and hangs up. The Hollywood Hills, which he has known since childhood, rise tidy and neat; houses shine, pools glimmer. But to...
