    :) Debate is always the first step. I wouldn't advocate breaking the law but discussion of rights and wrongs is not breaking it.

    I am of the opinion that the B&B owner has the right to refuse , political correctness has in my view got out of control , forced on the majority by a vocal manority , who are offended by pretty much anything ?? adoption by gay couple's ect ect , conduct a social experiment with children ???

    How did the woman know they were gay unless she asked them? Would she ask a hetro couple if they like back door sex? What if they were two men who were just mates on a fishing trip? And surely any two men that didn't have sex on that night are asexual anyway. Did she ask them if they were going to have sex in her house? If she doesn't like society she should keep her door shut.

    Let me ask all of you this,
    Would any of you turn down work in a homosexual couples house?

    Thought that might be the case.
    Everyones idea of what is normal or suitable is different from anyone else. I think the fact that it is your house means that you get use your own opinions.

    Why would any gay couple WANT to pay money to people like this anyway??

    ....do you mean so they put a sign up over the door "Free from Sodomy since 1942"?
    I'm not quite sure what you mean. How would it help them commercially?

    if they were planning on having sex while I was there I might.. :rolleyes:

    I don't have any religious beliefs other than the theory that Jesus was an alien and his "miracles" were just technology unknown to the people of the day.. so I don't object on that basis, just the " i think it's nasty and don't want to see or hear it" basis..

    I don't have anyting against gays at all, and that's not why I take the position that I do, it's the principle of a person not having the right to choose who to interact with that I dissagree with..

    If a fat smelly bloke drove away a dozen potential customers then it would be in the owners' interests to lose the fat smelly bloke.

    I don't think that most places advertise that they have gay people in them.

    What is it, like 1 in 10 people are gay? So chances are if you have stayed in any hotel, you have slept in the same bed as a gay person. Does that drive people away??
