FOX News – Sports – Sports – Belmont changes policy after gay coach protest

Did the University actually decide to change its policies because of the protests or because one of it’s biggest sponsors said that it’s time for Christians to act like Christians?

A university that came under fire from students for the departure of a lesbian women’s soccer coach has added sexual orientation to its non-discrimination policy, but it was not clear whether it covered sexually active gays.

President Bob Fisher announced the policy approved by trustees, but wouldn’t answer questions Wednesday regarding ex-soccer coach Lisa Howe. The private university has said her departure on Dec. 2 was a mutual decision. But students and players protested, saying Howe was let go because she told them she was having a child with her same-sex partner.
