"Many social and personality psychologists admit that they would discriminate against openly conservative colleagues,” according to a study to be published next month by two psychologists, the Washington Times reported last week.

On August 1, legions of Americans from across the country came out in defense of Chick-fil-A, the fabulously successful fast food chain that became the object of left-wing hostility when its owner and CEO, Dan Cathy, expressed his opposition to same-sex marriage.
However, not everyone who sought out the nearest Chick-fil-A restaurant intended to support it.
In Tuscon, Arizona, a man named Adam Smith videotaped himself berating a 26-year-old Chick-fil-A female employee named “Rachel.”
As Chick-fil-A basks in the afterglow of appreciation expressed by hundreds of thousands of Americans over its commitment to Christian values and traditional marriage, homosexual activists and their supporters continue their efforts to banish the restaurant chain from universities across the nation. To counter those efforts, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a conservative legal advocacy group, has sent letters to five universities where activists are pressing to have the restaurant thrown off campus, urging its administrators to resist such attempts.
A Denver area baker who was boycotted by homosexuals over his refusal to provide a wedding cake for a same-sex couple has seen his business more than double, thanks to the efforts of area residents who are taking a stand for liberty and traditional marriage.

“The time has come for a broad-based assault against the powers that be that want to change our culture to one of men marrying men and women marrying women,” said the Rev.

Seventy-five years ago, on August 5, 1937, one of the most horrific — and most ignored — episodes in human history began. “Operation Kulak” ("kulak" meaning rich peasants) was the Soviet Union’s effort to repress those farmers who had a little more than other farmers (according, at least, to the definitions of the Communist Party), and who resisted collectivization.
Twenty-five years ago this month, the Federal Communications Commission ended the “Fairness Doctrine,” which in the name of "fairness" infringed on the freedom of speech of radio and television stations, in violation of the First Amendment.
When Dan Cathy, CEO of the fabulously successful fast-food chain Chick-fil-A, told Online Baptist Press that he supports the “traditional” family, he ignited a firestorm of controversy. For this, he was vilified by left-leaning ideologues, including the mayors of several of America’s largest cities.
In response to what many perceived to be a blatant violation of Cathy’s First Amendment rights on the part of these elected officials, former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate, Fox News television host Mike Huckabee, came to Cathy’s defense by declaring Wednesday, August 1, “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”
On Wednesday, legions of Americans from all across the country came out in support of Chick-fil-A.

Priests for Life, a Catholic organization that has been on the front lines of the pro-life cause for the past 20 years, announced August 1 that it will not comply with the Health and Human Services (HHS) contraception mandate which went into effect on that date. The mandate, which is already the target of over a score of lawsuits filed by nearly 60 faith-based organizations, requires that all non-church employers provide their employees with health insurance that includes free access to sterilization and contraception — including abortion-inducing drugs.
