University Of Texas Students Start School Year With 'Cocks Not Glocks' Anti-Gun Protest 25.8.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com

The lawmakers said campus carry protects the rights of gun owners and could prevent a mass shooting on ...

Commentary: Religious traditionalists and LGBT activists should rein in their passions and compromise 25.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Lawyers, philosophers and all those who have seen the 2001 movie “Legally Blonde” know Aristotle’s famous saying: “Law is reason free from passion.” In the legal clashes over LGBT rights and religious liberty, passions run high, what’s “reasonable” is hotly contested, and the law is unsettled. A proposed bill in California shows how contentious and contradictory our most-cherished rights and liberties can be. It also reveals that compromise between LGBT rights advocates and religious traditional...

Sean P. Means: With 'Birth of a Nation,' when Oscar talk, old accusations and 'hot takes' collide 25.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Before this year’s Sundance Film Festival was over, the premiere screening of “The Birth of a Nation” had already become the stuff of legend.

That’s true, to a degree. The people in the theater’s front section were on their feet — but they were mostly Parker’s friends, castmates, crew members and i...
