Re: “Greed seen as the church's top problem — so why isn't Elevation angrier at pastor's excess?

What you need to do is leave this situation alone, because as I know for a fact even poor church's withold their pastor salaries from public view. In fact, it is the norm in most churches to not discuss salary. How much do you make since you don't think it is offensive to ask questions like this.

There are many great communities and Neighborhoods in Charlotte. I don't know that they are Gayborhoods but they are diverse and amazing! I moved to and I have 2 gay neighbors and many straight ones. I love them all.

Re: “CL goes undercover in a Charlotte 'crisis pregnancy center'

I took my 14 yr old daughter here to discuss ALL of her options as a pregnant young lady in a crisis. I felt that she needed to know all of the options that were available to her. What happened in this facility was like something out of a movie. We went there to get an ultrasound to confirm just how far along she was, so that we would be able to navigate what her choices would be. She had an appointment and was taken behind a locked door... mind you she is a MINOR, where I was left out in the waiting room. Upon being taken to the back of the office, I noticed a cross hanging from the door handle on the inside of the door. I thought that was odd, then started to put things together... like how nice the furniture was in the facility, the lack of state licenses on the wall, no literature available, AND the fact that after 20 mins and ringing the service bell several times to inquire about my daughter. I was finally led into a room where two women had been talking with my daughter, without me present. One was the " bouncer"... she actually leaned back against the door as if to prevent anyone from leaving the room. The other woman spoke to my daughter and explained that there were consequences to every decision she made. "There are consequences to saving a life and taking a life". She also stated that her pregnancy test came out negative, and that she should come back in two weeks to retake a test. Mind you, she had already had a blood test from a physician that confirmed the pregnancy. And by all calculations that would have put her past the time frame to get a legal abortion, IF she wanted to make that choice. We went there to get an ultrasound so that she would be able to make an informed choice on what she would be able to do. I feel like their agenda was being forced on a young woman who was already traumatized by her circumstances... and to me that was a very scary situation to be in.... creating further trauma to an already traumatic situation. Needless to say... we abruptly left.
If you find yourself facing a decision like this, I believe it is best to explore ALL options that are available to you. It is not right to force your will, and your beliefs on someone who is already under a lot of stress and uncertainty, for your agenda!
I don't condone the irresponsibility my daughter showed. But here we are faced with the consequence. My daughter is mentally ill, and we are fighting her illness everyday. It has been such a struggle. Her illness causes her to do things that aren't always good choices. So please take that into consideration before making a nasty comment. We struggle on a daily basis with the most basic tasks.... we are doing our best.
I just wanted to alert anyone who may be considering going there, what they will be up against.

Re: “CL contributor's first-person account of the first two nights of protests following Scott killing

It sounds like the police were engaging in standard riot patrol, and only started using their batons after being pelted with water bottles and bricks.

Re: “Death of Charlotte biker brings cycling community together

I've came across this Article because a few nights ago me & my mother saw a ghostly shadow like figure in the sugar creek area around 11 o clock pm the figure was on a bike (with no reflection from our lights you could not see the rims or any features of the figure) riding along side a train where they are currently doing construction. The figure rode along the drivers side where my mom was close to the car and disappeared (i didn't see it but she saw it and it frightened her) and reappeared in the middle of the passing train.. rode alongside and disappeared again. i was wondering if the person died on the tracks but i found not articles relating to a cyclist or train death other than this article considering this man rode in that area it could've been this popular cyclist. I've heard if you keep a significant item of a person who died in a traumatic way they get trapped between worlds & wander. RIP to this gentleman i hope his spirit finds its way.

Re: “Rev. Robin Tanner hopes to reframe religion in the Bible Belt

You look 14 on TV. Your voice sounds like a 15 year old. Your views sound like my 16 year old granddaughter. Change your hairstyle to make you look your actual age. Get a voice coach to improve the sound. Think views through before speaking.
