Those innkeepers should move to Tech's Ass. They would like it better there.

So, the owner said that he has never discriminated who stays at his inn...so he has NO trouble with unmarried people or gay people, sleeping together under his holy roof, but he doesn't want a nice little party with gay persons in the yard? What kind of sliding scale of morality did they use? NOT a very Christian one! Or, from reading the folks here, maybe a VERY Christian one.

I know of an inn that was completely full one night, but still let weary travelers stay...in their manger and we know what happened there THAT night!

Another pair of whiners. So what a pair of lesbians couldn't have a sham wedding reception at someone elses place of business? If a private business owner decides he doesn't want your money then go elsewhere. Women marrying each other is vulgar and ridiculous. That goes for men marrying each other too. What a shame these two had to embarrass their families in this way.

Well said!!!
Can't think of anything to add, other than that queers fundamentally hate and despise the 1st Amendment.

Yup, they'd rather make a big stink in the courts rather than just take their business elsewhere. I bet if the shoe was on the other foot the lesbians would be screaming bloody murder over being told how to run their own business.

yeah, you are FINE taking away gays' first amendment of peaceful gatherings, but perish forbid your little freedom to preach hate and intolerance is not stopped. Hypocrite and a half. What has their practicing illegal discrimination got to do with the first amendment, anyway?

I hope those tools LOSE their precious inn and have to go on welfare, or worse. End up in an alley, or sleeping in a 1994 Camry.

I'm going to open a bed and breakfast and call it "No CHRIZTIANS ALLOWED INN" We'll see how much YOU like that, shall we?

The only whining I see going on is your own. These allegedly good Christian Innkeepers violated a law which has been upheld time and time again, prohibitions of discrimination in places of public accommodation are perfectly reasonable limits on their rights as business owners. They were stupid enough to tell this couple that they were discriminating against them because they were gay, they should be thankful that their brain fart of hate only cost them $30k.

I'm not a Christian but thanks for the assumption. I really wouldn't care because it's YOUR business to run how YOU want to run it. I wouldn't show up and tell you how to run YOUR own business. If I was a Christian I would just take my business elsewhere. See how easy that is?

Hate? Typical extreme reaction to people having a different point of view from your own. Seems like maybe you're the one filled with "hate" just because other people stand by their own convictions. It cost them 30k because they don't support gay marriage on on their own property, and they shouldn't have to just to keep a pair of lesbians from getting enraged and clogging up the courts when the 2 whiners could have just gone elsewhere and taken their money with them. But instead the lesbians had to make a big public stink over it just to get attention and make a public spectacle of themselves. Did they get a little unearned $$$ out of it too?

I hate to break it to you but nobody is required to agree with or support homosexuality or gay marriage, and no law will force anyone to get into lockstep with some P.C. way of thinking. All your P.C. culture has done is drive people to be dishonest about what they really think because people like you will scream about "hate" and because it's not <snicker> P.C. Whatever that really is.

The facts of the matter are quite simple, the owners of this inn were stupid enough to tell this couple that they were going to violate the law protecting their access to places of public accommodation and why they were doing so. That violation of the law was reported and in the end, the owners of this business received the punishment they earned. You can whine all you want about this couple not turning a blind eye to an illegal act of discrimination against them, but they did the right thing, whether you like it or not. Actually, it tickles me to no end that it p*sses bigots like you off.

Bigot. Another P.C. buzz word that means "anyone who doesn't agree with my point of view." You're nothing if not predictable. lol!

So you're happy they got punished for their honesty, and you obviously prefer everyone express themselves within cookie-cutter P.C. uber-lib guidelines, even if they're not being honest about what they really think and feel. But I already knew that about the P.C. crowd. They don't want people to live and speak honestly, they just want everyone to be like P.C. sheep.

No matter how it came out I applaud the Inn owners for their honesty and their willingness to stand by their own convictions and not be muzzled by uber-lib P.C. sheep.

I love when people like the Inn owners stay true to themselves even the face of the P.C. crowd outcries.

Those whining lesbians certainly didn't win anyone over either, I'm sure. And I love it when it pisses off P.C followers like you.

The lesbians could have simply gone elsewhere. I'm sure they didn't do anything to

Good, who wants your intolerant ass in MY B&B anyway? You would be a horrible guest and probably leave skid marks on my 500 count Egyptian cotton sheets and whine "scones! I wanted drippy huge Danishes!" Go stay at Motel 6.

Did you drop dead while typing the last sentence or something? How nice of your loved ones to punch up "Post Comment", despite your thought being incomplete. Sort of your Schubert's Number 8 in B minor,'The Unfinished Symphony'/.

I guess you've run out of P.C scripted rhetoric so it's school yard rhetoric now. Danishes? Skid marks? Yawn.

I wonder how much the tight ass couple have lost in not having receptions anymore? I hope it is THOUSANDS and thousands! I hope it drives them right out of business! Then we'll see how much God cares for them as they live out their lives on skid row.

I hope those bull lezbians end up in divorce court scratching each others hideous faces off.
