AUSTIN, Texas — A private, Roman Catholic liberal arts college in Austin has barred a gay-rights group from participating in a campus fair to recruit volunteers
The Austin American-Statesman reported Tuesday that St. Edward's University says the homosexual group's support for same-sex marriage conflicts with church teachings.
Chuck Smith with Austin-based Equality Texas says organization still hopes to participate in Wednesday's event.
A statement from the Holy Cross institution in South Austin says the matter is closed.
St. Edward's has given its blessing to a gay rights organization for students called Pride. School spokeswoman Mischelle Diaz says the support group exists as a means of pastoral outreach.
