A number of Target stores faced protests over the weekend from parents concerned about child sexual predators harming their children following the retail giant's announcement last month that its policy allows customers who are men according to their birth sex to go into women's bathrooms and dressing rooms.
One such protest took place outside a Target store in Jackson, Mississippi, 16 WAPT News reported, with protesters explaining their concerns: "A man could put on a dress and say, 'I identify as a transgender,' and they can go in there," said Keith Daltol.
Parent Johnny Brekeen added, "I'm not saying that a transgender would harm a child. What I'm saying is if men are allowed to go into the restroom, children are going to be harmed." more >>

"Armor Of Light" will broadcast nationally on PBS Tuesday, May 10. It's a movie that shows the heart-wrenching fight of Lucy McBath after the murder of teenager Jordan Davis, and one pastor's journey to explore the pro-gun and pro-life arguments.
The compelling documentary follows Reverend Rob Schenck, founder of the Christian outreach program Faith and Action, on his quest to start a dialogue with his Christian brothers and sisters on gun laws and how they align with what the Bible teaches.
McBath, who is actively fighting for stricter gun laws after her unarmed teenage son was shot and killed on November 2012, is a big part of "Armor of Light." The grieving mother, also a devout Christian, vowed to fight for stricter screenings for those who want to acquire fire arms. She believes it's what God has instructed her to do after losing her own son to unwarranted gun violence. more >>
