Gay ITC student disputes election
He was cut from campus ballot

Christopher Brown's name was not on the ballot. A few weeks ago, Brown, 29, filed the paperwork to run for president of ITC's Morehouse School of Religion, as well as a spot on the ITC Board of Trustees. He said he was cleared of all requirements for candidacy and even participated in a debate with other candidates. A few days later, he said, he was told he could not run.
