    Yet another reason to get rid of anti discrimination laws.

    EHRC now targets 'gay-only' guesthouses. Just in case any straight Christian fundamentalists were planning a night in one – Telegraph Blogs

    I agree. Discrimination is discrimination. You cant have it both ways.

    It doesn't seem right to force a Christian to house a gay couple if they think homosexuality is immoral. I personally don't think there's anything immoral about homosexuality, but many people think there is. This is certainly not a "decided" issue in our society, even if the left sometimes want to think it is.

    The owners of the guesthouse should be free to decide who they cater to and deny whoever they want for whatever reason they want. It's their business, after all.

    Has there been a case of straight people being refused at a gay establishment?

    Do you think that gays should have the right to be able to not rent to people who hate them? Or to people who they disagree with personally or politically? I support the right of all people to not associate, or do business with, anyone they do not want to, do you?

    Sorry, this will not wash, Quantum Windbag. It is unconstitutional for a hotel to discriminate. If these owners want to limit custom to "Christians Only", they need to become a private club.

    Been that way for decades and they damn well knew this when they opened...unless their lawyer is a moron.
