Kudos to the Chronicle

The Chronicle of Higher Education is a typical publication from the world of academia in that it slants decidedly left in its political pronouncements. Fortunately, it has enough integrity to run a piece calling foul when a scholar is savaged for publishing research that can be used to challenge current left-wing orthodoxy on social questions.

Read the article by Christian Smith describing the “auto-da-fé” being carried out against UT-Austin sociologist Mark Regnerus for noting higher rates of emotional and social problems among adult children of homosexuals. Along the way, Smith talks about the parochial tendencies of the discipline of sociology in general.
