Student newspaper recalled after typo labels Mormon leaders apostates not apostles

An edition of Brigham Young University’s student newspaper was pulled from newsstands after editors learned of a typo that referred to Mormon leaders as apostates instead of apostles.

PROVO, Utah — An edition of Brigham Young University’s student newspaper was pulled from newsstands after editors learned of a typo that referred to Mormon leaders as apostates instead of apostles.

A photo in Monday’s Daily Universe showed members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, a governing body of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which owns the university.

The caption called the group the “Quorum of the Twelve Apostates.”

An apostate is someone who has abandoned religious faith.

University spokeswoman Carri Jenkins says it was an honest mistake that happened when an editor was doing a computerized spell check.

Most copies of the press run of 18,000 were picked up and a corrected version was distributed later Monday.
