Isabella Chow is a student at University of California, Berkley. She serves on the Associated Students University of California, the university’s undergraduate student government. Recently, the student government voted on resolutions which condemned Trump Administration policies regarding Title IX and recognition of transgenderism. One consideration of the Trump Administration is not recognizing a person’s preferred gender if it is contrary to the sex with which they were born. Chow is a Christian and does not support the resolution. Instead of voting against the resolution, she decided to abstain. She later elaborated on her decision.

Her choice has not been well received.

You can’t love God if you don’t love people

James says If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “you shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well” (James 2:8).  points

Royal Law is an interesting phrase. That’s the only time it’s used in the entire Bible. James follows up mentioning this royal law by saying “you shall love your neighbor as yourself” which seems to be what he’s referring to as the Royal Law. 

Lochte lies, lessons in honesty

Sunday morning, see a story about Ryan Lochte and three other Team USA swimmers being held up at gunpoint. I think “wow, how terrifying.”

Yesterday, I see stories that the Brazilian authorities don’t believe the story, and I think “how corrupt is this country!”

But then the stories start to conflict, swimmers start to backtrack (back stroke?).

Then we see that there is camera footage of the swimmers returning, the alleged cab they took can’t be found. There’s no evidence to back up their story.
