Another " Jehovaist " move that fails miserably ; there was nothing Christian about it .. Stick to the Gospels , which end with John ; for the rest is second-hand Christianity .

So the innkeeper believes that sex outside of marriage is a sin, for that reason did not rent the room. Hmm, I wonder if they were asking for proof of marriage from all their other guests?

Additionally, how were they so sure that sex would occur? Why do these gay obsessed people always fantasize about the sex lives of gay men?

They spy on the guests thru secret peepholes; just like in the old black-and white horror movies on the B channel

Check under your bed and behind the curtains; then make love in the bathtub so when the chandelier falls on the bed; it won't hit you

This ruling is another slap in the face to Christians (aka Haters), and shows that the elite institutions (aka educated people) are saturated with a liberal (aka informed) mindset which cares little about religious freedom (aka the ability to discriminate).

I wonder if these self-proclaimed "christians" would react if a polygamist wished to rent a room? What if he only brought one of this three wives along with him? Would that be okay, provided he only had sex with one wife at a time in their house? What if he came back a few days later and wanted to rent a room with a different wife? Then what? What if all four of them showed up together?

What about divorced people that have remarried? Jesus was QUITE clear about that. Do they ask when people make reservations if they have a previous spouse that's still alive??

Do they quiz all their guests about birth control measures?? Maybe they're planning on using a particular type of birth control that the crazy fringe believes is the same as an abortion? Do they turn away those people, too?

These people are clearly far too up-tight to be running a B&B. If they believe that it's their right to dictate and restrict what type of sex people are allowed to have in the privacy of their room, they have no business renting rooms.

I always have to laugh at anyone who characterises this as an attack on Christianity. Those who make such a claim obviously like to ignore large portions of 'christian' scripture.

70 Bible Verses about
Obeying Authority

Romans 13:1-5 ESV
Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience.
