I didn't know there were two Christian Unions. But I do have a few things to say about the current one.
Firstly it is not affiliated to the DSU for two reasons, firstly because it doesn't allow or rather promote women in exec positions. Secondly, it excludes certain Christian denominations such as Catholicism, because apparently they see it as not being purely based on scripture. *Ie the idea that Catholics are influenced by the Vatican, well this one isn't at all!!!*
Incidentally I went to a CU organised event last night at Grey, as housemates of mine had a friend playing in a band there. Luckily we were only there for a short 'questions and answer' section. I had bones against the man answering suggesting that Christianity was the right religion because it was based on historical fact- and not suggesting it may have happened but may also be interpreted by the writers of the Gospels in their own way. He also referred to non Christians as heathens, and if that's not fundamentalism speaking, I don't know what is.
I'm absolutely appalled at the blatant homophobia Oli was telling us about earlier too. *Although don't get me started on how homophobic and sexist the Catholic Church is either*
Saying that the music was good, and they gave us free crisps.
Also one disclaimer I have to put in is that: I know a few people who are in the CU and are normal and not at all fundamentalist. It's just a shame that a small minority should tar the rest of the membership with the same brush.
