Family separation: Evangelicals add their voices to opposition
When Julie Frady planned to make a poster to protest the Trump administration’s new “zero tolerance” immigration policy last week, she wanted to find the perfect Bible verse to stand against it, she says, one nobody else would expect. Since she joined about 60 protesters who marched in front of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services office in Delano, Kan., Thursday, more and more people across the United States, and from across its often-polarized political spectrum, have begun to express deep moral reservations at the logistical realities of the practice.

On election issues, US Supreme Court sticks to the shallows
Elections – how they’re set up, how they’re carried out – have been an important theme in the current Supreme Court term. Justices considered cases on everything from appropriate voting booth attire to methods of drawing election district lines. The gerrymander issue, dealing with partisan manipulation in the drawing of districts, was notable in this regard.

The high court’s hint on partisan gerrymandering
In a unanimous ruling on Monday, the Supreme Court hinted at how it may someday decide on partisan gerrymandering, or the drawing of electoral districts by state legislators to keep one party in power. Individual voters, the justices concluded, must first show whether they were harmed by the boundaries of their particular voting district. For the courts, the effect of gerrymandering on political or social groups is not a matter of justice.

Watch Ronda Rousey Get Ragdolled By Nia Jax At WWE ‘Money in the Bank’

Charles Barkley's inappropriate answer on 'Family Feud' shocks teammates
The crew from Inside the NBA played against former MLB stars on Celebrity Family Feud . Even though the NBA crew was on the same team, they had no trouble giving each other a hard time for bad answers. And Charles Barkley definitely was on the receiving end of a lot of that grief. Host Steve Harvey asked Barkley, "If a man's zipper breaks at church, what might he use to cover it up?" Fortunately, Barkley was the fourth person to be asked the question, so he was able to prepare an answer. His answer was "a child." The answer was so shocking, that Ernie Johnson Jr. joined the MLB team momentarily. And Shaquille O'Neal said, "The man gonna get us locked up. Not a good answer. Put your hands behind your back. You're under arrest." Barkley tried to defend his answer by saying, "I meant a baby!" But everyone agreed that "baby" is even worse than "child." While everyone laughed at Barkley for his inappropriate response, it was "Sir Charles" who had the last laugh. When the answer "person" was revealed, Barkley was awarded the points. The NBA team went on to win the whole game.
