A Duquesne University sophomore said he will risk being expelled for expressing his view that homosexuality is "subhuman" rather than write a 10-page essay the university has called for.
Ryan Miner, 19, of Hagerstown, Md., was sanctioned by the university for posting his view on an online forum not related to the university.
He opposed an effort by other students to form a Gay-Straight Alliance group, an issue still being debated by the Catholic university.
"I believe as a student that my First Amendment rights in the Constitution were subverted and attacked," said Miner, who is Catholic.

Duquesne, no bastion of conservatism there.
He'd be called 'astute' if he changed Gay to Bush.
Girls humiliate guys who are unattractive or are viewed as geeks.
Guys humiliate girls who are not attractive, are fat or ackward.
Guys with hair insult bald people.
The list goes on and on.
But the only thing we won't tolerate is picking on gays.
Why are gays treated better than the stupid, unattractive, bald, fat, ackward, unathletic, etc?
Just in keeping with the sentence 'structure'.
He should obviously be sent to a re-education camp to be put on the path of "liberal" righteousness. /SAR.

Makes you envious. Don't it?
This should be disquiety to Catholics who hoped the new Pope might do something about the homosexuals in the priesthood. Interestingly, even 35 years ago in a Catholic university setting, there were attempts to discipline students for being anti-homosexual after having passes made at them.
Why can't the Church simply live by the doctrine it preaches?
Diversity mantra pushes forward - message to all those who think this doesnt affect you - Businesses are now pushing the diversity mantra and this basically means if you are white (and esp male) and Christian you are going to be punished for your values. For those that dont think boycotting companies like this is a reason for change then you obviously support limited speech and our rights taken away from us.
DIVERSITY is the new evil.
Duq is so friggin' gay.
I was referring to my mother-in-law!
Why does a university have any say over what a student does on an online discussion forum not hosted by the school?
What happens to posters on FR if they're posting on the campi of Stanford, SUNY, Harvard, Yale or Brown and the PC police at their school discovers screen names are actually a student in their midst?
I fail to see how the University has any jurisdiction here.
He ought to submit a ten page essay from a lawyer on why viewpoint discrimination is illegal.
isn't that the dang truth!
Freedom of speech is under attack in our country and too
many institutions are buckling under to intimidation from
the brownshirted "gay activists." Of course a university is
almost like headquarters for them but private companies are
buckling under to "diversity" too. Click your bootheels
and salute. And the legacy of Ernst Rohm (GAY HITLER BROWNSHIRT LEADER) lives on.
"University Code which prohibits harassment or discrimination based on, among other groups, sexual orientation"
"I was referring to my mother-in-law!"
