partly because of its vocal crusade
against abortion.
Campus Crusade and most other
Christian groups refrain from open
political activity on campus; although
individual members are free to get in-
volved, they don't usually identify
themselves as members. "We tend not
to do those things not because we don't
support it, but because we don't feel
that that is our place," says John Hem-
bruch, one of eight student leaders.
"We don't feel our group is strong
enough - it spreads us too thin."
Maranatha members, on the other
hand, maintain high visibility in anti-
abortion demonstrations, most recently
at last Saturday's march from the
Diag to the Planned Parenthood office.
"My main goal as a Christian is to
glorify God in whatever I do," says
Maranatha member Dan Lockrie. "As
far as social things like abortion are
concerned, I believe the gospel can be
applied to everyday life."
But Lockrie says the group feels
social and political issues are not a cen-
tral part of its purpose. "I think there
has been a little bit of a weakness on our
part...possibly being drawn into those
things too much, because they really
aren't the focal point," he says.
Steve Cass, a philosophy major and a
chapter president of Inter-Varsity, says
his group stays closer to that ideal.
"We're thinking about doing things
where the central issues of Christianity
are what's being presented in a forum
where people can listen, dealing with
the gospel and not getting sidetracked
with every other issue under the stn."
Cass says the level of involvement in
community or social issues may go up
in the next few years as the group gets
larger, but stresses the issues would
only focus on Christian ethical topics.
"We have a vision for the campus
that we'd like to be able to share our
faith with the students on campus," he
says. "But we're not trying to gain
power in a sort of Moral Majority sen-
The same idea goes for Christian
students speaking up in the classroom,
says Cass. "I don't have any support for

'Each individual is different, and each expresses
his faith in a different way. It's a very personal
thing about how you do it. I definitely know people
in (Campus) Crusade who are very evangelistic
and pushy, but I also know people who are scared
to death to even tell anyone they're involved.'

Christians who harass professors,
rudely in class from a Christian
viewpoint, but Christian students need
to have the guts to ask intelligent
questions that challenge professors."
Many students belonging to the var-
ious groups say they feel they have to
defend their faith when it comes under
fire in the classroom, much to the
chagrin of other students who consider
the digressions a waste of time.
"If someone says something against
Christianity, I see it as my place to
defend it," says Crusade member-
Maryclaire Zeigler. If it's a case of a
professor or teaching assistant taking a
slant against her religion, Ziegler says,
there isn't much to do about it during

very much it was the right thing for her
to have done. When you're asked to
write about something, you have to
write what you believe," Arquette said.
Some students say the University en-
vironment, with its stress on the in-
tellectual, frequently benefits the faith
of campus Christians instead of
weakening it. Others disagree.
LSA junior Craig Korpela, who was
raised in a Christian household, says he
has known students in some of the cam-
pus groups "whose religion forbids free
discussion," and who "seem to ignore a
lot of problems."
Hembruch maintains however, that
"Being in an environment like this is
great for my faith, because I constantly

class-time-the best thing then is to talk
with the instructor privately. But when
there is a "misinterpretation of
Christian doctrine," she says, she won't
hesitate to correct it.
Nora Arquette says that she and her
roommate once decided to incorporate
their new faith into paper topics. "I en-
ded up doing very well because my TA
was very open to that sort of thing, and
she (the roommate) ended up almost
failing because the TA thought it was
not an appropriate place to be ex-
pressing herself. But I think she felt

have to stick up for it. I constantly have
to come back to the question of why I
believe what I believe."
He says that although the University
is "not a totally terrible place to be," he
does have a feeling of being different
from other students. "It tends to be a
hassle at times. You get upset about it,
but that's another reason Crusade is
there, to help people understand and to
help them deal with those struggles."
