You’ve probably already seen the news reports on the Department of Justice suing the State of North Carolina, which countersued last week over religious freedom.  We won’t reiterate those stories here, but the following two articles touch on  the impact of the current bathroom debates. The third link provides analysis and commentary from Charles Haynes, Founder of the Religious Freedom Center at the Newseum in Washinton, D.C. Lastly, an NPR report details how the Southern Baptist Church is dealing with changing societal norms.

This first article cites a current law suit brought about in Illinois over a mandated transgender bathroom policy.

This second article provides evidence to counter arguments from advocates of religious liberty laws who argue that allowing transgender people into the bathroom of their choice will open the door to predators.

This third piece is an analysis from Dr. Charles Haynes at the Religious Freedom Center of the Newseum.

This last link is a NPR story (7 minute audio included) on the Southern Baptist Church and societal changes.
