Last week, Huffington Post blogger Suzanne DeWitt Hall penned an argument claiming that based on literal interpretations of the Bible, Jesus was the first transgender man and Eve was the first transgender woman.
Hall frames her column around the issue of transgender bathroom access and complains about Christians who view gender as a biological fact, not a mental construct.

In their annual “Studio Responsibility Index” report, GLAAD takes major film studios to task for their representation (or lack thereof) of LGBT people in film. The organization recently released their 2016 report, which gives Disney a failing grade; over the 11 films the studio released in 2015, none of them included appearances by LGBT people. This year, GLAAD cited the “Star Wars” universe specifically as an area where the studio could change this.

WLOS — ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- The transgender community is urging Asheville businesses to ensure the safety of people using their bathrooms after discussion over House Bill 2 has heated up.
Dozens of people plan to get downtown businesses involved Thursday.
A group from Asheville's Tranzmission will be canvassing businesses, beginning downtown and continuing through West and South Asheville, and asking whether their bathrooms would be safe for transgender people to use.
This week, a list of nearly 350 North Carolina businesses came out in support of HB2. Only a few dozen of them were willing to share their names publicly.

In the wake of their successful lobbying effort to defeat a controversial religious freedom bill in Georgia, Disney and several other like-minded companies are getting called out by a conservative organization called Texas Values for allegedly going to “war” on Christianity.
When Georgia’s legislature passed the Free Exercise Protection Act (H.B. 757), legislation that would have allowed local businesses to refuse to provide services to people whose lifestyles offended their religious sensibilities, an overwhelming number of voices from the world of business and entertainment converged to pressure Republican Gov. Nathan Deal to veto the bill, which he eventually did on Monday.
“It’s striking that the day after Easter, churches in Georgia are told their freedoms are not that important to protect. It’s clear that corporate giants like Apple, Disney, NCAA, Intel have finally come out of the closet and declared public war on the religious freedom of clergy and religious schools, as was the protection in Georgia’s very modest HB 757 that they worked to bring down,” wrote Texas Values president Jonathan Saenz in a statement this week.
There are not many times that we declare something a red alert at CYI Worldwide / News watch. But looking at the rising tide of anti-Christian violence and rhetoric, this article seemed timely. It's time to sound the alarm, get right with God and make a concerted effort to spread the gospel. The return of Jesus is at the door.
