FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Catholic student group at North Dakota State University is protesting the showing of “50 Shades of Grey” at the student union next week.

The group Bison Catholic represents 4,000 Catholic students on campus and says the film blurs the lines of rape and other crimes against women.

KFGO-AM reports (https://bit.ly/1GCUfun ) the student-run group Campus Attractions is planning a three-day run of the movie at the Memorial Union theater.

Father James Cheney heads the campus Newman Center and says the movie glamorizes sexual abuse and abuse relationships. He says it should not be paid for with student fees.

Father Cheney says Campus Attractions has told the Catholic group it will not cancel the showing.

University spokeswoman Laura McDaniel says NDSU doesn’t interfere with the student decision making process.
