If being in the NIC is keeping AEPi from doing something like this, why don’t they just cease being part of it? It seems like they’re doing their members and especially rushees a disservice by pussyfooting about the issue and saying “we’re for everyone, except when we’re not.”

Great points.

I did look through the NIC membership list and there do appear to be other NIC member GLOs which have some kind of religious membership "requirements" or very close to it. Here are two that I know of:


Beta Sigma Psi

3. Any male student enrolled in the University of Kansas, who has expressed explicit interest in developing their relationship with God through the Lutheran faith, shall be eligible for membership with a three-fourths vote of Active Members, with a quorum being present.

Beta Upsilon Chi https://betaupsilonchi.org/about/what-we-do/

I believe that BYX requires members to profess the Christian faith in order to obtain membership.
