Faculty wants discussion of sexual identity issues

AP Wire

Tenn. (AP) - Professors at Belmont University, where a gay soccer coach resigned, want campus discussion of sexual identity issues.

The Tennessean reports the Faculty Senate at the Nashville university late Monday approved a resolution in support of gay members of the campus community. The resolution also invites administration officials to discuss the issue.

Belmont officials have denied Lisa Howe was forced to step down after telling her women's soccer team members that she is gay. Howe's players say she was forced out by the university.

Belmont spokesman Greg Pillon said he had not seen the resolution and could not comment.

The university's mission statement identifies it as a "student-centered Christian community."
