Nashville's Christian School, Belmont University, Announces Anti-Discrimination Policy About Sexual Orientation

Belmont UniversityAfter the controversial departure of Belmont University's openly gay and popular soccer coach, the small Christian university of Nashville, TN, announced yesterday that it is changing its anti-discrimination policy.

The president of the school said that the board of trustees decided to add the words "sexual orientation" to its anti-discrimination policy.

The change in policy has affirmed that the university does not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation.  However, the president did not answer the question posed by reporters as to whether the school will actively welcome openly gay students and faculty members.

Lisa Howe, the woman who lost her job at the university after telling members of the soccer team that she and her same sex partner were expecting a child, said that she has not been offered her job back.
