WorldNetDaily: 24 homosexual-rights activists arrested at Falwell university

The group involved is Soulforce, about which I have already spoken. They appear to have gone to Liberty University, their proposed first stop, this although Jerry Falwell had already said that they would not be welcome. And now twenty-four of them are cooling their heels in the jail at Lynchburg, Virginia.

Let me reply to one statement that an "Equality Rider" made:

We have a right to be here, because this school teaches that being gay is being sick and sinful. We have a right to question and to show how we are children of God.
Children of God you are, but homosexuality is still a sin--literally a missing-of-the-mark (from the Greek hamartia, likely from the roots a- without and martureo I bear witness). It also is an illness, the causes of which are poorly understood and perhaps deliberately obscured.

As I said earlier: not every school has decided to bar the group from campus. Some schools have decided to bear direct witness to them, and part of that has included putting them up in a hotel, or even inviting them into their homes. Let us all pray for some soul winning on future stops.
