Same-sex marriage is a phrase that conjures quite a bit of contention. The contentions are subject to arise in any organization whether it is a family, workplace, the military or church. The Episcopal Church it seems has just sided with same-sex marriage by allowing the marriage of two of their lesbian clergy members. Of course, this marriage has brought on contention. But why does the contention occur? Is there really something wrong with same-sex marriage? If there were something wrong with same-sex marriage don’t you think members of the clergy would know that?

LIVE SPORT CHAT:Teen Athletes & the Abuse of Over-the-Counter Drugs
From baseball stars to Olympians, media coverage of elite athletes increasingly includes reports of the use of performance-enhancing drugs to gain an edge over competitors. These substances are usually taken to boost athletic performance, increase muscle mass and strength, and diminish fatigue. Teen athletes in high school and even middle school are taking these drugs, too. There are many reasons for this, such as frustration over being at a plateau in training or curiosity about the drugs' effects. Some young athletes also may use performance-enhancing drugs if they think that others (especially competitors) are using them - and if they believe that coaches and parents will look the other way regarding the use of such products.
Creatine - Creatine is a compound that helps muscles use energy and recover more quickly following exercise. Steroid precursors - Steroid precursors are substances that the body converts into anabolic steroids,Ephedra - Ephedra, also called ma huang, is a plant that contains two amphetamine-like stimulants: ephedrine and pseudoephedrine. The concern about ephedra products was so great that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned ephedra from being sold in dietary supplements in 2004. The scope of the FDA rule, though, does not pertain to traditional Chinese herbal remedies, so ma huang tea or other herbal products that contain ephedra can still be purchased. Some cold products also contain ephedrine or pseudoephedrine.

Over the years we at Outsports have seen the incredible power that athletes, coaches and other people in sports coming out can have on not just their sport but youth they will never meet. Even today we got wind of a 17-year-old gay aspiring umpire who has been inspired by the coming out story of MLB umpire Dale Scott.
Yet there are precious few out LGBT professional athletes, particularly men. They choose to not come out due to a host of reasons, from their own playing career to endorsement deals - they fear they could lose any or all of them if they come out.
Do they have a social responsibility to come out anyway? Should athetes weigh the inspiration they can provide, and the social change they can help move along, over their own personal wealth and playing career? And do their fears have any merit in the first place?

What is empathy? Why is it important in the lives of athletes, coaches and parents?
As an adult, have you ever:
-critiqued kid's playing/running/jumping/passing?
-spoke at the athlete(s) without first asking them a question?
-offered advice without being asked for it?
-gave your perspective of the game before asking or hearing theirs?
How we talk with kids is a MAJOR issue in youth athletics and why MOST KIDS QUIT! 200,000 youth soccer players were surveyed as to why they didn't join the current season and their #1 answer was it was 'no fun'! #2: coach, #3: parent. Apprently the adults in their lives aren't making the experience enjoyable any longer.
How can we support athletes without pushing them past the breaking point? Why is this pressure necessary?
What else can we say that helps them learn but isn't harsh criticism?
How can we as adults come from a place of empathy? What is empathy? How do we use this powerful tool? Listen in!
