Brigham Young Univ Newspaper Recalled Over "Apostle/Apostate" Mix-up

Never a truer word brother, never a truer word. And who would have thought a spellchecker would be capable of a Freudian Slip?

All copies of the student paper at Brigham Young University have been recalled after a caption labeled a group of Mormon church leaders as "apostates" instead of "apostles."


The paper claims it was typo caused by spell check. Students, the university statement suggests, are "confused" over the matter but some claim paper is known to be "sloppy" anyway. Readers were told to peruse the paper online.


The university explained: "A spelling error appeared in a photo caption in which the word 'apostle' was rendered as 'apostate.' In referring to activities at the General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints last weekend, the caption read in part, 'Members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostates and other general authorities raise their hands in a sustaining vote. . . '.”
