It was encouraging to hear that some United Methodist and Episcopal church leaders in North Carolina took a stand this week on N.C. House Bill 2 which, among other provisions, requires transgender people to use the bathroom of the sex they were assigned at birth.
I have learned that a proposal is being considered in the North Carolina legislature to restrict the so-called “free speech” rights of hecklers who shout down and who attempt to prevent speakers on North Carolina’s university campuses from speaking.
I have been somewhat perplexed concerning the whole HB2 mess and can empathize with viewpoints from both sides of the bathroom debate.
