So clearly, in fact, that VanderMolen's attorney sent out a disclaimer, noting that his client was not participating in the seminar. Still, the release noted: "Coach VanderMolen contends that he has been wrongfully discriminated against by the St. Vrain School District on the basis of exercising his Constitutionally protected religious freedom to communicate his belief in traditional Christian teachings on such topics as homosexuality."
That no one has ever suggested the women advocate homosexuality in the schools apparently doesn't matter. That Colorado law protects what public employees--married or not, gay or not--do in their off-hours (so long as it is legal) apparently doesn't matter, either.
What matters is that Coach VanderMolen did not win the game and now sees himself as a martyr to the cause.
But that, too, is open to interpretation. "By the way," another resident wrote the local paper, "Jesus was a teacher, also, and he was never married. Coach, do you think there was something wrong with him?
