In a country ruled by liberals, perverts certainly have the whip hand:
A resort in northern Vermont has settled a lawsuit brought after it refused to host a lesbian couple’s wedding reception, citing the innkeepers’ “personal feelings.”
The Wildflower Inn in Lyndonville declined to host an event for Kate Linsley (nee Baker) and Ming Linsley, both of New York, saying innkeepers Mary and Jim O’Reilly did not host “gay receptions.”
As part of the settlement, the resort will pay $10,000 to the Vermont Human Rights Commission and place $20,000 in a charitable trust to be disbursed by the Linsleys, according to the American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Vermont.
It also agreed to no longer host wedding receptions.
If you won’t host blasphemous parodies of wedding ceremonies at your place of business, then you can’t host any at all.
Jim O’Reilly explains his point of view:
“The Wildflower Inn has always served — and will continue to serve — everyone in our community. But no one can force us to abandon our deeply held beliefs about marriage.”
No, but the militant degenerates who rule us can certainly punish you for staying true to them.
The Vermont Fair Housing and Public Accommodations Act prohibits public accommodations from denying goods and services based on customers’ sexual orientation.
A country in which private citizens are told by the government who they must do business with, and are punished for not hosting events they deem to be immoral, has relinquished the right to call itself free.
