PITTSFORD — Nazareth College officials say a member of a local church called Homeland Security on two Muslim students who visited a church as part of a class assignment.

In a letter to students, Nazareth College President Daan Braveman said he was disturbed greatly by the report.

He tells students that the Muslim students were visiting an unidentified local church as part of a "Sociology of Religion" course in which students are required to attend religious services that are not of their faith.

Braveman says this is the second time the students had visited the church. However, during the visit, he says a church member called Homeland Security to express concern about the students.

State police investigated the incident and — after contacting the college — dropped the matter.
