From The Washington Post

"Somewhere, maybe at this very moment, neurologists are trying to figure out what all this screen time is doing to the still-forming brains of people Katherine’s age, members of what’s known as Generation Z. Educators are trying to teach them that not all answers are Googleable. Counselors are prying them out of Internet addictions. Parents are trying to catch up by friending their kids on Facebook. (P.S. Facebook is obsolete.) Sociologists, advertisers, stock market analysts -- everyone wants to know what happens when the generation born glued to screens has to look up and interact with the world."

"What will happen when all of society is sexless in both language and law? If the law does not recognize your body as physically male or female—applying only the word 'gender' to your internal, self-reported self-perception—does the law even recognize your body? Every single cell of you has either 'male' or 'female' written into its DNA, but the law refuses to recognize such categories. Such laws will only recognize an infinite, immeasurable 'gender spectrum,' your place on which is determined only by your mind. So what exactly are you after the law has de-sexed you? In what sense is your body a legal entity?"

"Both would come to realize that many people on the other side of the issue were sincere, passionate and had similar values. Mary would come to learn that Drew wasn’t motivated by 'hate,' but by fear and traumatic memories that had left scars. Despite their differences, Drew would come to see Mary as someone to trust."

From The Corner

"It is incumbent upon all of us to separate out the infuriating politics of the issue from the heartbreaking tragedy of the human victims of sexual radicalism. Many of the angriest of the activists are people in deep despair, who’ve destroyed their own bodies and can never recover their physical selves. I’ll oppose their ideology to my last breath, but they deserve our prayers, our compassion, and our aid. They have been deceived."

From NBC Charlotte

"Newly released 911 tapes show tense moments after a baby may or may not have survived an abortion at a Phoenix family planning clinic back in February.

"The incident struck a chord with many pro-life advocates, who held a vigil and protested the incident. Others wondered about not only the legality, but the morality of the incident."

"In the book They Were Christians: The Inspiring Faith of Men and Women Who Changed the World, Krusen details the faith of 12 transformational figures who impacted United States and world history."

From The Charlotte Observer

"Recently, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch compared HB2 to Jim Crow. Jim Crow laws were put into place to keep an entire race positioned as second-class citizens. HB2 simply says that men and women should use the restroom of their biological sex in government buildings and schools. This comparison is highly offensive and utterly disrespectful to those families and individuals who have shed blood and lost lives to advance the cause of civil rights. I take this as a personal slap in the face because I was an active participant in the civil rights movement."
