    I only know that because me and my friends used to sit in the balcony and try to hit people with popcorn on the main floor. It was childish...but hey...we were children.

    In the U.S. it's against the law. It's called discrimination. It may be private property but, it's a business that caters to the public. The public of all colors, genders, sexual orientations, etc.

    Should they be forced to take in gay couples if it is against their religious beliefs?

    If that is the case, the owner and her husband are going to be paying some fines.

    I wonder how long it will take for a "Million Gay Man March" to be started in Washington and to finally halt bigot's ability to limit gay rights and for homosexuals to truly be free in America.

    Do people not learn from history? It's like dejavu...

    I know what the law is. The question was not about the law. It was about what we thought it should be. And it's not straight up discrimination. It's discrimination against a "protected class". Not all discrimination is illegal.

    No they are not allowed, I could have sworn UK has laws against this? I suggest the BB owners prepare for a fine or being sued by the couple.

    The question is, what do YOU think the law should be. The poll is to find out what the people here think the law should be regarding this specific scenario.
