Did you bother to read the story or are you simply trying to make an arse of yourself? It has nothing to do with "making a statement" and everything to do with violating MA non-discrimination laws.

Arse of myself? Have you ever been to the Gay, Lesbian and whatever parade in Northampton?

Parades don't have anything to do with it. Gays and lesbians golf too. They have every right to golf with their chosen mate there, just as heterosexual couples do. So you think that simply by showing up in public that people are trying to make some form of "statement" instead of merely living their lives just as every other couple does.
