Church that welcomes gays may face Baptist ouster

University Baptist Church, which welcomes practicing homosexuals, may be ousted from the Texas Baptist General Convention.

The convention's administrative committee has voted unanimously to recommend expulsion at its next meeting in Dallas. The convention's executive board has set a Feb. 24 vote.If the board upholds the committee, the convention's name will be removed from the church's literature and Web site.

For years, relations between the University Church and the convention have been turbulent.
