The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., barred a gay rights group from cosponsoring a pro-life conference on campus that took place last weekend.

The Pro-Life Alliance of Gays and Lesbians' support for same-sex marriage and other civil rights were enough to get the group barred from contributing to the annual conference, which the organization supported last year. According to the university newspaper The Tower, PLAGAL members were still allowed to attend the conference.

"Of course I'm frustrated," Cecilia Brown, president of PLAGAL, told The Tower. "I'm tired of being treated like this by Christians ... even when we agree on the issue of protecting the unborn."

Students for Life, the campus group coordinating the conference, was told by school administrators that PLAGAL's mission statement goes against the teachings of the Catholic Church. According to PLAGAL's blog, its mission is to "bring the pro-life message to the GLBT community while at the same time tries to set up working relationships with those within the traditional pro-life community."
