13/05/2005 - 10:32:30

A US catholic organisation is opposing a visit to a Pennsylvania university later this month by President Mary McAleese.

The 16,000-strong Cardinal Newman Society has accused Mrs McAleese of being out of line with Catholic teaching due to her views on gay rights and women priests.

Mary McAleese is due to accept an honorary law degree and make a graduation speech at the Catholic Villanova University on May 22.
