MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A Lutheran college is publicly opposing the amendment to ban gay marriage in Minnesota's constitution.

Augsburg College is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. Five of Minnesota's six ELCA synods have also gone on record against the amendment.

The Minneapolis liberal arts school has about 4,000 undergraduate students.

Minnesotans United for All Families, the campaign against the amendment, says Augsburg President Paul Pribbenow's office joined its coalition this week.
