    "Christian" B&B owners want rights to ban gays, unmarried couples and other faiths

    Today's Observer reports on several bed and breakfast owners, who want to retain the right to ban gays, unmarried couples, and people of other religions from their premises:

    Hundreds of B&B owners across the country have been writing to ministers complaining that the new rules will force them to 'betray God' and their consciences by allowing 'undesirables' to enjoy their hospitality.

    'We've had a lot of correspondence from Christian B&B operators who don't want to be forced to accept Satanists, Muslims, gays and even unmarried couples as guests,' said a Home Office official. 'Protestants have been writing in saying they shouldn't have to admit Catholics because they have an issue with their religion, Catholics saying they didn't want Jews under their roof and objections from followers of other types of faith.'

    How very "tolerant" of them.
