The Catholic University of America Rejects Gay Student Organization
In the same week that the University of Notre Dame approved of a gay student organization, The Catholic University of America denied official recognition to a gay student organization on campus, reportedly citing a concern that it could become an “advocacy group.”

CUAllies, on their Facebook page, compared the denial to being “denied Communion.”

They wrote:

Yesterday, Catholic University handed down its decision to once again deny official recognition to CUAllies. They cited a “possibiltiy of becoming an advoacy group” as the reason.

This denial is very much like having been denied communion-a particpation in one’s faith community.
