As I can not personally repeat all experimental results for verification it all comes down to a matter of trust. I prefer to trust a journal that has an illustrious history, such as publishing Watson and Crick's DNA paper and many more superb articles, rather than a journal I've never heard of claiming ASTOUNDING results, especially one dedicated to a squishy soft "science" like social psychology. 

By the way, I don't understand why you didn't take me up on my bet, it's a easy way for you to make a thousand dollars. If you think my list of 3 journals is too short let me know, I could easily add more journals to the list that I respect. And I will give you another way to win the bet, if Warren Buffett invests in a company started by Bem to cash in on this revolutionary development and potential gold mine before October 20 2011 then you get a thousand dollars, you only have to pay me a hundred dollars if there is no journal paper or start up company investment by that date.
