Kentucky Catholic college will not host event for LGBT Pride week [updated]

Catholic World News - June 17, 2010

Brescia University, a Catholic school in Owensboro, Kentucky, has announced that an art auction scheduled to be held on campus on June 25, as part of Owensboro Pride Week, will not take place.

Owensboro Pride Week is sponsoring a series of public events dedicated to promoting LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) Pride Month. A spokesman for Brescia indicated that an alumnus had reserved a space on campus for the proposed art auction. When the school realized that the event was connected with the gay-pride initiative, school officials withdrew their permission for the event.
