Your religious freedom is someone else's discrimination.

Christian hotel owners refuse a gay "civil union"-ized couple a single room because they don't believe unmarried couples should stay in the same room. Gay couple sues and wins. Gay couple did not set out to do this as an activist stunt, they just picked a B & B they thought seemed nice.

Mike Judge, from the Christian Institute, which funded the Bulls' defence, said: 'This ruling is further evidence that equality laws are being used as a sword rather than a shield.'
... 
'Christians are being sidelined.'
Your religion was formalized how many thousands of years ago? You didn't think society would move along a little bit in a few thousand years? They had slavery back then, women weren't allowed to vote and this and that. Torture was all over the place. Dictatorships were generally hereditary.

Time for Christianity and Islam to move along or get left behind.

You have the right to refuse entry into your home to anyone. If you're running a business you don't have the right to discriminate on who you serve based on gender, sexual preference, race or religion.

I wonder if these people ever rented out a single room to an unmarried heterosexual couple?

I'm not a big fan of the "alternative lifestyle" crowd. I despise some of their activists. But they're better than the hate & discrimination crowd.
