  • FIRE alert - UNC outlaws Christian fraternity

       August 25, 2004

    It seems that those holed up in the Ivory Tower at UNC have once again chosen "political correctness" and "diversity" over basic Constitutional rights.

    CHAPEL HILL, N.C., August 25, 2004A federal lawsuit was filed today against the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) by Alpha Iota Omega (AIO), a Christian fraternity that was denied recognition by UNC because it would not agree to open its membership to students of different faiths. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), which is fighting on behalf of AIO in its conflict with UNC administrators, is now joined by the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), which brought the suit against the university.

    What? You mean a Christian organization wants to only accept Christians as members? Oh, the humanity! How close-minded and outright intolerant and racist of them!

    I wonder what UNC would say if I challenged the status of a sorority on campus, charging that they are actively and wrongly discriminating against me on the basis of gender by refusing to allow me to join? I'll bet I could craft a pretty good Constitutional argument based on Equal Protection, to boot.

    Actually, I should probably just shut up right now.... I'm only giving the ACLU ideas....
