Skip to comments.Yale may not recognize Christian fraternity
Posted on 11/26/2012 9:31:03 AM PST by Nachum
A newly approved Christian fraternity at Yale University may be denied official recognition and student group funding because it plans to restrict membership to men who believe in Jesus.
Just days after the leaders of Beta Upsilon Chi (BYX) announced the Yale chapter's formation, the student newspaper reported that the group "will have to change its membership rules if it intends to comply with Yale's anti-discrimination policies."

Ever more stupidity at the university.
I wonder what the Yale response is when muzzie fraternities want recognition to preach sharia justice, jihadism, stoning women who are raped, mutiliating baby girls by FGM, and all the rest?
Hmmm, does this mean Black fraternities have to admit white racists?
To be clear, I’m not advocating for this, but if you’re going to force one fraternity to admit people who do not support the premise the group was formed to support, then all fraternities should live by the same rule.
Forcing unreasonable diversity, isn’t quite the enlightened thing it’s claimed to be is it.
Stop complaining and get with it: People at Yale are smarter than the rest of us.
When I was a kid growing up in rural NW Florida, our pastor at a small Southern Baptist Church, had a PHD from Yale, I think from their divinity school if they had one.
He was actually retired and was serving as pastor while he and his wife lived out their later years. He was very conservative.
His Son who was an engineer at Chrysler, headed the design team which created the Abrams tank.
Sex Week Sparks Debate
Sex Week on the Yale campus returns and will have competition this year.
Sex Week has returned to the Yale campus.
The week is billed as a way to promote sexual health though a series of events and workshops.
It has been toned down this year on the advice of school administrators.
“I think especially this year, they’ve taken great care to make it an inclusive event,” a Yale junior said.
There will also be sessions about pornography.
This Christian fraternity at Yale should operate totally independent of Yale. They should note want to be “recognized” by Yale. What does it mean? Do they get Yale money? The ability to participate in Yale-sponsored events? How about the Yale Christian fraterniity sponser an event and invite Yale to participate in it - or not invite Yale?
Earlier there was the story of the Boy Scounts being denied government money if they refuse to allow open gays to join. Hey Boy Scouts, you don’t need the government money!
I think that Christians should take heart. The message we have is so strong that it's mere presence is a threat in the arena of ideas so it must be banned and not discussed or held as an example. Love trumps hate/envy. Honesty trumps lies/dishonesty, Virtue and bravery trump cowardice and licentiousness.
So pathetic that we can cherish Jesus in a jar of piss but a manger with the child Christ is so disruptive to the delicate sensibilities of the muzzies and liberal/atheist/communists that they can't even tolerate it's presence.
Everybody should just embrace this hatred with a nod of understanding and pity. They are so insecure, so pathetically weak of argument and so lacking in moral fiber as to run around like scared little children stomping their feet and yelling that the scary man on the cross wants them to Love their mother and father, not envy their neighbor, treat others as they would be treated, not to lie or steal, to be faithful to a vow made in front of God and the community to fidelity to one woman/man that loves you and all the other commandments.
It's not that they don't want to squash you, it's that they KNOW they are in opposition to what is true and just but can't face the fact that everybody knows it and hope that just maybe if nobody says they can't do all these things in opposition to the Lords commandments that maybe they'll be "OK" cause they really are "nice" people.
Even if these boys made a "club" with the charter saying they believe in Christ, I can assure you that the club would be vandalized, sued by the ACLU and harassed in all manner and ridicule. The young boys should just understand that the Lord said this is what happens to true believers. EMBRACE the HATE. Wear it as a badge of honor that these pathetic vermin and cockroaches hate them for believing in the one true son of God and his philosophy of Loving the Lord and honoring his gifts by actions and thoughts.
What if they just require each member to memorize and recite The Apostles’ Creed?
I’ll bet they already have some sort of Muslim club, and I doubt whether those guys would let someone who dissed Mohammed join.
You mean like this one at Yale?
Yep. There is a Yale Muslim Students Association. They claim to welcome all, but I still seriously doubt whether anyone could get away with dissing Mohammed.
Heh. You beat me to it.
They need to learn how the game is played. You don’t just join a fraternity, you have invited to join. So you just don’t give an invite to people you don’t want to join. There is no need for a rule which requires you to do what you would do anyway.
Leftwing fanaticism, whether directed at religious faith, free economies, or other traditional values, is indeed stupid. Yet more significant, it is compulsion driven. It is not spurred by analysis, rather a neurotic frenzy to abolish all differences & distinctions--egalitarian insanity that is the ultimate enemy of the very premises of individual liberty.
See, for example, Compassion Or Compulsion.
For the attack on local religious expression, not really applicable to Yale: Leftwing Word Games & First Amendment Guarantees.
Religious Yale graduates--or even non-religious, but fair Yale graduates--need to stop contributing to Yale, while this attitude persists.
Can anybody belong to the black student association/
