This topic seems to crop up quite regularly in other threads, but usually gets bogged down by statements regarding disease, and the anatomical aspects of homosexuality. So I thought I would start this thread to discuss the legal/human rights aspects and see if anyone has a reason that is more valid than "just don't like the idea of same sex couples having sex" for not granting gays the same rights as the rest of society.
In the UK we have equality legislation that now grants gay people the same rights as everyone else. recently there has been a discussion on the Christian hotel owners who refused to give a same sex couple a double room and would not recognise their civil union status. From my point of view (and that of the law), they were a business that was discriminating against gay people. They paid the price. Are there any other similar examples that we can discuss?
