St. Edward’s University Won’t Let the Gays Infiltrate Their Catholic Volunteering Fair To Recruit

St. Edward’s University, the small liberal arts Catholic university in Austin, has barred Equality Texas from a campus volunteer recruiting fair, because permitting the group’s involvement would be akin to endorsing same-sex marriage, or something.

“By requesting participation in the volunteer fair, Equality Texas is asking the university’s Office of Campus Ministry to facilitate recruitment of students for work that includes advocacy for same-sex marriage,” says the university in a statement. “This is not something we can agree to.” Not that the school is banning students from volunteering at Equality Texas; they just have to find out about it on their own time.
