WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Six members of a gay rights group
were arrested in West Palm Beach attempting to attend a chapel
service at Palm Beach Atlantic University.
The students were arrested Monday for trespassing, are all members
of a group called Soulforce Q,
University officials wanted to meet with the group privately, but group
members refused that request with select students and faculty.
According to members of Soulforce Q, the meeting would have
defeated their mission of reaching gay, lesbian, bisexual and
trans gender students.
The group reported that this weekend two panes of glass on the bus
they were traveling in were smashed.
Soulforce is touring 15 schools in the South. Palm Beach Atlantic is the
only Florida school on the tour.
