For those of you who don't believe there's discrimination against gays, here's a good example. By the way, in 31 states its legal to discriminate against gays. As I understand it, you could legally fire someone, deny them housing, etc. because they are gay. http://www.wltx.com/news/story.aspx?storyid=48201&GID=tdBTsdt6Zpm25FREc7vTKRvNCPu96Nv JkjT4 qGjh8= A gay couple looking to rent a hotel room say they were turned away because of their sexuality. "She wasn't discreet about it," said Jason Pickel, referring to a hotel employee. "She was not apologetic. She just said, 'We do not rent to gay people.'" ... News19 contacted the hotel, posing as a potential renter, and inquired about two men staying in the same room. The receptionist who answered the phone told us the following: â€śOur policy is we donâ€™t rent to two people of the same sex if we only have one bed.â€ť â€śIs that your policy,â€ť we asked. â€śThatâ€™s corporate policy because they only have one sleeping area.â€ť We then asked, â€śOkay, but they can't share the bed?â€ť "I suppose they could, but most men donâ€™t want to," she said. However, when News19 called the owner of the hotel, Carroll Atkisson, he says there had been some confusion. He says any couple can come to the place and they will rent to them, period. Atkisson says the policy was not mean to target homosexuals. He says they were just trying to stop two single people from being in the same bed. ... Currently, there is no state law preventing a hotel from refusing service to a same-sex couple. However, it is illegal to discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, gender, disability, or marital status.
