Bullying needs to be reported immediately.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Last week, law firms and scholars came to the defense of Blaine Adamson, the owner of a small printing company, who has been ordered by the government to print shirts promoting a gay pride festival and to attend government-mandated “diversity training.” Among his supporters are LGBT-owned businesses such as BMP T-Shirts as well as the Becket Fund, renowned scholar and University of Virginia Law Professor Douglas Laycock, and Stoll Keenon Ogden PLLCS, who are filing a friend-of-the-court brief in Mr. Adamson’s defense.
