HB2 op-ed in thehill.com

Excerpts from post: No middle ground will satisfy everyone. Folks on both sides — call them hardliners — sincerely yearn for victory based on principle and morality, and despise symbolic defeat. But a principled return to “pre-existing law and practice” sows pardon where there is injury, and it relegates the non-problem of the wrong bathroom to old, tried and true trespassing law — and to the jury.

[W]e can ask our leaders to sit down together and assemble a package to make the fighting stop.  As a Christian pastor put it: We can live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
