    By the way Kaya, this was an awesome poll. It's a good one to make people think. Good job.

    In this case, the law says that it is illegal for providers of a service to the public in Britain to discriminate on the grounds of sexual orientation. Religious bigotry is no excuse for not obeying the law. There are parallels to the case of the hoteliers who refused a gay couple their booked room.

    Perhaps, in that I would say it's government overreaching its limits to infringe upon free enterprise.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
