These days, there really is no room in the inn for Jesus--especially if you're the innkeepers! Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. At a Bed and Breakfast in Hawaii, Christians have to make room for people they disagree with. Last week, a federal court ruled against a bed and breakfast owner for saying she was "uncomfortable" hosting a homosexual couple. When the women tried to make a reservation, the owner apologized, but said she couldn't open up her home to a lifestyle that conflicts with her faith. So, the couple sued her. Now, six years later, a judge is saying that the inn is violating this couple's rights. But what about the owner's rights? The First Amendment means that a Bed and Breakfast shouldn't have to violate its conscience just to stay in business. But that's the problem with same-sex "marriage." People think it won't affect them--until it's too late. In the tourist industry, you should be able to manage a hotel without any reservations... about your values.
