Brite rep accuses Disciples' group of bigotry
The divinity school's director of field education filed a petition in state District Court over alleged discrimination by a committee of the Christian Church's Southwest Region.

A top Brite Divinity School administrator said Tuesday that he was barred from representing Brite on a Disciples of Christ Church regional committee to interview minister candidates because he is gay.

Stephen Sprinkle, director of field education at Brite Divinity School, said he was told by committee chairman Ben Hubert that he was “polarizing students” and would not be allowed to participate in interviews held Jan. 12 to Jan. 14. Sprinkle said he disputed the claim, but stayed for general meetings, which included prayer and meals.
