    Catholic professors and other faculty members at a prominent Wisconsin Catholic university are now being trained to report any school employees who voice their opposition to same-sex marriage as a form of harassment to the university's human resources office. Marquette University has begun requiring its employees to attend workplace anti-harassment training, where they are taught that it is imperative for them to quickly report faculty members who discuss openly their opposing view of same-sex marriage. As the Catholic News Agency reports, Marquette's anti-harassment training includes a comic-style story presentation where a fictional character named "Harassed Hans," who overhears his co-workers,...

The filming was arranged by an organization that devotes itself to ending what it calls “street harassment” in cities throughout the world.There seem to be two major anti-street harassment organizations and when perusing their websites one is immediately struck by the vagueness of their definition of the term. It is very much...

    A Virginia farmer is claiming that an environmental group is trying to drive her off her property with overzealous zoning enforcement and invasive inspections. Martha Boneta explained to Steve Doocy on Fox and Friends this week that when she bought the 64-acre farm eight years ago, she agreed to an easement, which allows the Piedmont Environmental Council to visit the property to make sure no laws are being broken. We never dreamed in a million years that we would encounter so much abuse of power, Boneta said. Its been eight years of invasive, abusive inspections that go far beyond whats...

    Campbell Police Chief Tim Kelemen is on paid leave while authorities investigate whether he broke the law when he used a tea party activist's information online. Board members during a special meeting Thursday voted unanimously to take action against the embattled chief after public outcry that he lost credibility and trust from many in the small community. It's a routine move when an employee is under investigation and not an indication Kelemen is guilty of a crime, said his attorney Jim Birnbaum. "It's neither surprising nor something we don't understand," he said.

I am a threat. This is not about any loss of freedom...
