Evangelical campus ministry group asks pro-gay staff to quit

By RACHEL ZOLL

NEW YORK (AP) -- One of the largest evangelical college ministries in the U.S. has asked any staff members who support same-sex relationships to quit, a move critics call a purge and supporter laud as an affirmation of true Christianity.
InterVarsity Christian Fellowship informed all staff about the policy over the summer after issuing a position paper based on their three years of study of sexuality that concluded sex should be reserved for marriage between a man and a woman. The organization's leaders said employees are expected to "believe and behave" in accord with InterVarsity's stand on sexuality, including not engaging in immoral sexual behavior or promoting positions that conflict with the group's beliefs.
"If they disagree, we trust that they will alert their supervisors and conclude their work," within two weeks, the leaders wrote in a letter the Madison, Wisconsin-based InterVarsity provided Friday to The Associated Press. "We expect that staff who continue to disagree will act with integrity and let their supervisor know."
