Friday Five: HB2 ad, the Benhams join the Values Breakfast, and more

Welcome to the Friday Five! Every Friday we share our top five articles, stories, and quotes for you to read and share with your friends and church families.

As always, share any ideas for stories with us on Facebook and Twitter.


1. The Institute for Faith and Family released a 6-figure ad buy across NC with a powerful ad that shows why young women support NC's bathroom privacy law.



2. David & Jason Benham join Governor McCrory, Lt. Governor Forest, and Senator Newton as speakers at the upcoming Carolina Values Summit Prayer Breakfast.

The Benham Brothers are the latest to confirm attendance as speakers at the upcoming Carolina Values Summit Prayer Breakfast. The Benham Brothers, David Benham and Jason Benham, are twins, serial-entrepreneurs, leaders, husbands, fathers, and authors. They received notoriety after their evangelical convictions on marriage cost them the opportunity to host their own HGTV show. Tickets to hear from the Benhams and other leaders are still available for $50 (breakfast included), and individuals may sponsor tables for $600. The event starts at 8am on October 13th, and concludes with a short walk up to the Capitol south lawn to join Franklin Graham's Decision America program. (RSVP tickets)

4. McCrory's statements to the Business Journal describes a meeting with the Human Rights Campaign where they directly tell him their agenda was to impact this election.

McCrory tells the Business Journal: "I have to remind you, the NCAA played the men’s Final Four in Houston in April under no objection. The NFL will play the SuperBowl in Houston this year with no objection. All this after Houston rejected an ordinance similar to Charlotte. Why? The Human Rights Campaign's political agenda was to impact this election. They told me, they met with me, they told me what their agenda is. And they have followed through extremely well."
