Christian fraternity turns away Mormon —Hunter Riley

Freshman John Bundy wanted to join Kappa Upsilon Chi, a Christian fraternity on campus. But he was denied admission because he is Mormon. "They did all the things fraternities do, but they're centered around Christ," he said. "I was really interested in the student organization because they did retreats and services in the community." Mark Nelson, president of the UNM chapter of Kappa Upsilon Chi, said Bundy's faith doesn't fit with the fraternity's members. (Read full article here.)
Thank you, Kappa Upsilon Chi, for the reminder of how divisive and petty a religion can make ordinary people. Your Jesus and the Mormon Jesus need to get together and read The Sneetches.
