According to the Houston Chronicle in Houston, Texas, there is a confrontation involving religious speech at Stephen F. Austin State University, a state sponsored school. There are about 180 student groups at the university and a new group, made up of Wiccan students has applied, for recognition in the Fall of 1999. Their certification is opposed by some Christians on campus.

The final vote is 16 to 15 in favor of recognition. Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship had hung a banner over the school entrance off North Street stating:

"This campus belongs to God...The Earth is the Lord's and everything in it, the world and all who live in it." (Psalms 24:1)
