Trustees at Berry College, a Christian school, disallowed a gay-issues discussion group after it was approved by the school's Student Life Council, saying they were concerned the group was advocating homosexuality.

West Palm Beach, Fla.

After allowing the group to rehearse on its grounds since October, the Rosarian Academy, a Catholic junior high and grade school, canceled two performances by Voices of Pride, the gay men's chorus of the Palm Beaches, scheduled for May 14-15, because the show "promotes" gay marriage.
