A student at the University of Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Kentucky is expelled after revealing on the internet that he is gay.

According to the Associated Press 20-year-old Jason Johnson from Lexington has been expelled from the school after revealing on his MySpace.com profile page that he is gay.

A university spokesman says the student was asked to leave the small Baptist school on Thursday.

The university has a policy that says it reserves the right to expel a student who "promotes sexual behavior not consistent with Christian principles."

According to the Associated Press, the university would not comment specifically on Johnson's expulsion, but school president Jim Taylor says in a statement that the school is unapologetic about its Christian beliefs.
