Robert Baldwin of Muscatine, Iowa was buried yesterday at Arlington National Cemetery. He was killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan last month. This is one of his four children.

The church celebrates the deaths of soldiers, saying it’s God’s retribution for American policies toward homosexuals.
Here are the court transcripts of the oral arguments.
