ROBINSON GETS A TONGUE-LASHING FROM RELIGIOUS LEADERS: On Monday night, some liberal religious leaders from around the Triangle gathered outside Robinson’s office to give three demands: They said he needed to apologize, make himself available to the faith and community leaders for a conversation, and, if he didn’t meet the first two requirements, that he needed to resign. “Any person who chooses to be a leader of humankind, by seeking election to public office, knows that their words and their actions have the power to make life better or worse for the people they serve,” said Rev. Vance Haywood, pastor of St. John’s Metropolitan Community Church in Raleigh. “Those words and those actions can even put the lives of people at risk.” Rep. Cynthia Ball, a Raleigh Democrat, said she has asked several fellow N.C. House members in the Republican Party if they’d be willing to talk about Robinson’s comments, but none responded. “For them, I think it’s some kind of party politics,” Dahle said. It always is.
