Denver, Colo., Aug 28, 2016 / 03:02 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."This quote from British author Evelyn Beatrice Hall (often misattributed to Voltaire) might sound rather foreign on many college campuses throughout the country today, who in many ways seem to prefer to be defended from the First Amendment rather than to defend it.Earlier this year, students at Emory University in Atlanta protested that their safety was threatened by chalk messages showing support for Donald Trump for president.

There were “similar but less striking” results for women. The idea of innate sexual orientation is “not supported by scientific evidence,” the report said.Titled “Sexuality and Gender: Findings from the Biological, Psychological, and Social Sciences,” the report reviews various research studies to examine claims about sexuality and gender.It was authored by Dr. Lawrence S. Mayer,...
