Eric Holder came forward at a recent Human Rights Campaign dinner to say, shock of all shocks, President Donald Trump is a fear-mongering disaster who's busily selling so-called patriotic lines to like-minded bigots as part of a desperate political ploy to keep ahold of his White House power.

- The Washington Times

Members of the New York City Council and Board of Health voted to add a third gender category to birth certificates -- "X" -- beginning in 2019. With a stroke of a pen, confusion prevails. Male, female, whatever. The vote means anyone can self-identify as anything, no doctor's note needed.

Barack Obama, the GOP thanks you

- The Washington Times

Followers of Christ, with growing frequency -- with alarming frequency, perhaps -- are jumping aboard an artificial intelligence bandwagon and trying to merge today's technology with yesterday's godly creations and in the end, come up with a race of people who are, in the words of the Christian Transhumanist Association, "more human." Eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil much?
