Student expelled for same-sex marriage

Bethany, OK - A college student in Oklahoma claims she was expelled from school for marrying another woman. 

Christian Minard says she married in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on March 17th and posted the wedding license on Facebook, but she claims when she returned home last week from her honeymoon she had a letter from Southwestern Christian University telling her she would not be allowed to return for her final semester.

A university official says Minard had been a student at the school in Bethany but no longer was. Minard says she feels she was singled out for violating a lifestyles covenant that prohibits ``homosexual behavior" and says other students have violated the covenant.  

Southwestern Christian University has not commented on the situation saying federal privacy laws keep them from being able to provide details.
