In Brief

Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina, has announced it will arrest homosexual graduates who set foot on campus. In October, alumnus Wayne Mouritzen, a 60-year-old retired pastor, received a letter from the fundamentalist school's dean of students saying "as long as you are living as a homosexual, you, of course, would not be welcome on the campus and would be arrested for trespassing if you did visit." The ban does not apply to the campus art museum, which could lose its tax-exempt status for such action. The Internal Revenue Service revoked the university's tax-exempt status in 1970 because of its ban on interracial dating.

Norma McCorvey, the "Jane Roe" of the 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion, has become a Roman Catholic. McCorvey, 51, was confirmed at a parish near her Dallas home in August. She earlier crossed over to the pro-life cause and was baptized by Operation Rescue director Flip Benham (CT, Sept. 11, 1995, p. 70), then joined the speaking circuit (CT, June 17, 1996, p. 62).

Even though the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a Colorado constitutional amendment curbing homosexual rights (CT, June 17, 1996, p. 68), justices in October let stand a Cincinnati law barring special preferences and protections for homosexuals. Lawyers defending the city say the court's move should encourage other municipalities to pass similar legislation. Cincinnati voters approved an amendment to the city's charter in 1993 and a federal appeals court upheld it in 1995. The Supreme Court indicated that the Cincinnati amendment differs from the Colorado law in that it prevents homosexuals from obtaining special employment and housing privileges.
