Transcript Several show up to protest Colorado for Family Values seminar LONGMONT, Colo., Saturday, April 1 (AP)—Several people, including an off-duty Boulder County sheriff's deputy, were removed from a Colorado for Family Values meeting that protestors denounced as a promotion of hate. About 400 people turned out for the anti-homosexuality "Time to Stand" seminar Friday. An estimated half in attendance were in support of Colorado for Family Values. The other half took part in a candlelight vigil outside a Longmont church and a vocal protest inside. Gay rights has been a touchy issue in Longmont ever since a local high school coach was transferred to a middle school after he allegedly harassed two women coaches he accused of being lesbians. The coach. David Vander Molen, did not attend Friday's meeting, and his attorney said the coach has nothing to do with Ihe Colorado Springs-based Colorado for Family Values. But Mary Belle Spencer was in full support of CFV, and she generously y rights of CFV, and donated a check to the an group. "A heterosexual doesn't carry on with iheir sex in the street. Why should (homosexuals) be allowed to do it?" Spencer said. Protestors shouted during a movie titled "Gay Rights, Special Rights" and then heckled former lesbian Jami Breedlove as the woman spoke out on her religious beliefs. "I'll take a chance on missing some good gay sex rather than missing eternity with my maker," Breedlove said. The congregation responded in unison with a chorus of "Amen." Colorado for Family Values director Kevin Tebedo further heightened tensions when he said homosexuals are more likely to be mass murderers, rapists and child molesters. He added that gays and lesbians are more likely to commit suicide, infect their partners with disease and die at a young age. That prompted Boulder County sheriff's deputy Catherine Lachman to stand up and denounce Tebedo as a liar. She was escorted from the meeting shortly thereafter. Once outside the meeting, Lachman said Colorado for Family Values is "promoting such hatred among people."
