Pam and Linda have set for the forum community and also the education I have gotten from just learning about names in sociological, anthropological, philosophical, religious and even "pop" cultural contexts. I am a better person for it. If it weren't for NB I wouldn't even know that a Cohen is similar to a "high priest" as one Jewish member explained awhile ago when she was unfairly attacked in a thread for mentioning the sensitivity of the issue. I don't think there is anything wrong with constructive debate, but throwing out reactionary terms is not the mature way to go about it, especially when ignorance is involved.
P.S. On a lighter note, I didn't know there was a "Beyond Sarah and Sam" book! I will have to add it to my collection. : )

I think the troubling part of the article was the headline coupled with content that cites only the link to Judaism--not the special meaning that so many of the bloggers/readers/commenters pointed out. It seems like an editing issue.
