christian bigots lose UK supreme court discrimination case
« on: November 27, 2013, 06:44:46 AM »
2 elderly christians refused to let civil partners[1] share a double room in their B&B citing a "religiously-informed judgment of conscience"

The county court and court of appeal already told them to STFU so they spent another £50k taking the case to the supreme court to be told;

"Sexual orientation is a core component of a person's identity which requires fulfilment through relationships with others of the same orientation

The christian institute responded with this breathtaking display of bigotry

Quote
What this case shows is that the powers of political correctness have reached all the way to the top of the judicial tree, so much so that even the Supreme Court dare not say anything against gay rights

Good for them, proving that the age old christian tradition of discrimination is alive and well  ;)

You know what will be interesting?  The US Supreme Court has agreed to take up the Hobby Lobby care of being "forced" to offer birth control to employees in health insurance.  I suspect the court will rule 5-4 in favor of business (Hobby Lobby).  Would such a ruling (letting a business make policy for their employees based on religious beliefs even going against fed law) also allow for businesses to not hire or provide service to gay people because of their religious beliefs?  This could be a real slippery slope.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.
