    Well lets see...are you willing to disagree...have a discussion and respect people who disagree with you or are you a bigoted intolerant asshole that disrespects people that have differing opinions? Is it REEEALLLY that difficult a concept?

    I can have great in depth discussions with people and at the end of the day love them, respect them, and treat them like family. OR...I can have discussions woith people that dont respect my differing opinions...with TOTALLY different end results.

    but then...you knew that...didnt you...

    I very seldom click on the gay threads because its absolutely entirely exhausting and far too pervasive. But perhaps you are right...better to just ignore them altogether.

    So, it's different that a restaurant or hair salon, where sexual activity isn't the expected norm.
    Why presume that they're going to have sex?

    I'm married and we've stayed in quite a few hotels - and rarely have sex. Sooo - what kind of a sleazy woman is she being by assuming one's actions for the night behind closed doors?

    I fully support people's rights to have their religious views - but only if those views do not infringe on the right's of others and she crossed that line. Much in the same way that I feel it crosses the line to permit anti-abortion doctors to deem what they can and cannot carry as far as BC goes.

    If its private property the owner has that right.

    It's a place of business. One defined by law where such a bigoted action is banned. Them's the rules.
    Don't work out, work in.

    I don't think this thread is about what the law is but rather what the law should be.

    Exactly.
    And this particular place of business is not private property.

    I usually avoid gay threads myself, but I thought this particular article did provide an interesting dilemma. I agree, the whole gay issue is exhausting.
