Beta Upsilon Chi Sues the University of Florida

Christian Frat Sues University of Fla.

The University of Florida's chapter of Beta Upsilon Chi is suing the college for refusing to recognize the fraternity as a student organization.

Beta Upsilon Chi, a Christian fraternity known as "Brothers Under Christ," says the university won't allow them to become a student organization because its members are required to be Christian. The university says such organizations must be more diverse and allow participation of any student that wants to join.

"As a Christian fraternity, (Beta Upsilon Chi) is locked out of the Florida campus," documents in the case said. "The only way Florida will recognize (the fraternity) is if it chooses to give up its identity as a men's organization or if it abandons its religious criteria for members."
