    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A nun who sparked outrage at a Charlotte high school with comments about homosexuality will take a leave of absence.

    She is now taking a sabbatical from her teaching position at a Nashville college.

    Last month, Sister Jane Dominc Laurel told students at Charlotte Catholic homosexuality comes from a lack of a father figure and a lack of masculinity.

    Now, Laurel is taking time off from her job at Aquinas College.

    The college’s president said she went too far.
