    " The Sexual Orientation Regulations 2007 make it unlawful for a person providing goods, facilities or services to members of the public to directly or indirectly discriminate (or victimise) on the grounds of sexual orientation in the provision or non-provision of such goods, facilities or services, or the terms upon which they are offered. This is regardless of whether or not the goods, facilities or services are provided free of charge. This covers a wide range of public and private services, including important areas such as healthcare, insurance, and the provision of hotel or holiday accommodation. .. "
    Sexual orientation is a practice, not a physical and uncontrollable trait. If people don't want a homosexual couple having sex in their bed and breakfast than they can refuse them service. Homosexuals are not a race or creed, but a group who prefer the same gender sexually. It isn't equal to race, religion, or even age. It would be the same as saying you don't want to have someone who is a porn addict staying at your bed and breakfast.

    I agree. They *should* be able to discriminate against people who choose to practice heterosexuality.

    They should be allowed to refuse anyone they want for whatever reason they want. Why should I be required to take people into my home?

    If your name is on the mortgage, then I'd say it's your home.

    Not if it is a legal business. And most banks I believe would revoke the mortgage of a private residence if they new it was turned into a commercial enterprise like a B&B

    Meaning you would be required to get a commercial mortgage
